Media reports on research showing climate change has reversed 900 years of cooling in the Gulf of Maine

Maine Public, the Bangor Daily News, the Machias Valley News Observer, Fishing Wire, Scienmag,, Newswise, the Penobscot Bay Press, WMTW (Channel 8 in Portland), AZoCleantech and Futurity reported on a study co-authored by the University of Maine showing that climate change has reversed nearly a millennium of cooling in the Gulf of Maine over the past century. “Combining precisely dated geochemical data from the clam shells with state-of-the-art climate models provides a powerful method for understanding climate change in the Gulf of Maine. We can see how local conditions are influenced by large-scale patterns through time,” said Karl Kreutz, co-author of the study, director of the School of Earth and Climate Sciences and professor in the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine.
