Fear of ship mishaps in the Arctic 26.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
When the Crystal Serenity, a 1,000-passenger luxury liner, sails in August on a month-long Arctic cruise through the Northwest Passage, it will have a far more utilitarian escort: a British supply ship. The Ernest Shackleton, which normally resupplies scientific bases in Antarctica, will help with the logistics of shore excursions along the route from Alaska to New York through Canada's Arctic Archipelago. But the escort ship will also be there should the Serenity become stuck in ice or something else goes wrong. The Shackle ton can manoeuvre through ice and will be carrying emergency water and rations for the liner's passengers and 600 crew members, oil spill containment gear and a couple of helicopters. As global warming reduces the extent of sea ice in the Arctic, more ships — cargo carriers as well as liners like the Serenity taking tourists to see the region's natural beauty — will be plying far northern waters. Experts in maritime safety say it raises concerns about what will happen ...

Satellite snafu masked true sea-level rise 24.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The numbers didn't add up. Even as Earth grew warmer and glaciers and ice sheets thawed, decades of satellite data seemed to show that the rate of sea level rise was holding steady — or even declining. Now, after puzzling over this discrepancy for years, scientists have identified its source: a problem with the calibration of a sensor on the first of several satellites launched to measure the height of the sea surface using radar. Adjusting the data to remove that error suggests that sea levels are indeed rising at faster rates each year. "The rate of sea level rise is increasing, and that increase is basically what we expected," says Steven Nerem, a remote-sensing expert at the University of Colorado Boulder, USA who is leading the reanalysis. Steven presented the as-yet-unpublished analysis recently at a conference sponsored by the World Climate Research Programme and the International Oceanographic Commission, among others. Steven's team calculated that the rate of sea level rise increased from ...
