Geography in the News

Hottest year on global record was Canada's coolest in 18 years: CBC News (Jan. 12, 2015)— Despite that, the country was 0.1 C warmer than 'average'.

Tongan Volcano Creates New Island: DiscoveryNews (Jan. 17, 2015)— A Tongan volcano has created a substantial new island since it began erupting last month.

Did the Anthropocene begin with the nuclear age? ScienceDaily (Jan. 15, 2015)— Humans are having such a marked impact on the Earth that they are changing its geology, creating new and distinctive strata that will persist far into the future. This is the idea behind the Anthropocene, a new epoch in Earth history. But if the Anthropocene is to be a geological epoch -- when should it begin? Scientists have now identified July 16, 1945 as key time boundary in Earth history.

When Earth was a frozen snowball: BBCNews (Jan. 12, 2015)— 715 million years ago the entire planet was encased in snow and ice. This frozen wasteland may have been the birthplace of complex animals.
