  "A decade of sea level rise slowed by climate-driven hydrology“ J. T. Reager, A. S. Gardner, J. S. Famiglietti, D. N. Wiese, A. Eicker, M.-H. Lo. While the ice sheets and mountain glaciers continue melting, changes in climate over the past decade have led to Earth’s continents to store an extra 3.2 trillion tons of water in land (over soils, lakes and underground aquifers), temporarily lowering the rate of sea level rise by about 20% that is called “climate-driven sea level changes”. The climate-driven sea level rise has been…

Dynamics of tropical rainfall belt in the western Pacific over the past 282 thousand years     The Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), the most important realm for global ecosystem and human population, encompasses the heaviest tropical seasonal rain belt on Earth. Due to its intensive rainfall gradient, a small displacement can cause dramatic changes in hydroclimate. Being the corresponding author, Dr. Chuan-Chou Shen, a Distinguished Professor of the Department of Geosciences, and his team published their newest research results in the internationally renowned journal “Nature Communications” on November 25. According…
