|Soils may reduce the impact of drought, or enhance damage Tundra and natural forests in Northern Europe are more sensitive to extreme dry and hot climatic events than Mediterranean areas in Southern Europe. The soil plays an important role in determining the climate adaptability of these regions. |

|Clouds dominate uncertainties in predicting future Greenland melt New research suggests that the representation of clouds in climate models is as, or more, important than the amount of greenhouse gas emissions when it comes to projecting future Greenland ice sheet melt. |

|Improvements in water quality could reduce the ecological impact of climate change on rivers Warm water can affect freshwater organisms in similar ways to many pollutants: both reduce the availability of oxygen in the water. As oxygen levels decline, sensitive species may disappear. On a more positive note, efforts to improve water quality, such as improved wastewater treatment and tighter regulation, could potentially counteract some of the effects of climate warming. |

|Lake sediment records reveal unprecedented nature of recent floods in NW England A new study of lake sediment records stretching back over several centuries has found that the floods that hit Northern England in 2009 and 2015, were the largest in 600 years, pointing to the impact of climate changes on the frequency and magnitude of these extreme events. |

|Cement as a climate killer: Using industrial residues to produce carbon neutral alternatives Producing cement takes a big toll on our climate: around eight per cent of annual global carbon dioxide emissions can be attributed to this process. A team of geoscientists has found a way to produce more environmentally friendly and sustainable alternatives. |

|Impact of CO2 leakage through North Sea wells Realistic estimates show that global warming can only be kept below 1.5 or 2 degrees Celsius if carbon dioxide is actively removed from the atmosphere. Storage beneath the seafloor is an option that has now been investigated intensively. |
