Larch trees in the permafrost forests of northeastern China — the northernmost tree species on Earth — are growing faster as a result of climate change. A new study of growth rings from Dahurian larch in China's northern forests finds the hardy trees grew more from 2005 to 2014 than in the preceding 40 years.
The lakes, forests, mists and snow of the Kola Peninsula deep in the Arctic Circle can make this corner of Russia seem like a scene from a fairy tale. Yet amidst the natural beauty stand the ruins of an abandoned Soviet scientific research station. In the middle of the crumbling building is a heavy, rusty metal cap embedded in the concrete floor, secured by a ring of thick and equally rusty metal bolts.
North Bay Nugget
North Bay is taking additional precautionary measures for flood prevention and property protection due to the rising water level of Lake Nipissing and the expectation of significant rainfall.
Because rising lake levels could pose operational challenges at the city's wastewater treatment plant, pumping equipment and temporary piping has been brought in as part of a contingency plan. Treated effluent will be pumped from the plant's chlorine contact chamber if conditions warrant.
Northern Ontario Business
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) is seeking public comment on the environmental impact of KGHM International’s proposed mine project near Sudbury.
Victoria is an underground copper-nickel mine project, 35 kilometres west of the city.
Based on the public's feedback, the agency will post a decision on its website whether an environmental assessment is required.
Sometimes, you must feed a growing city a plate of money.
In Barrie's case, the municipality will need to consume about $2.9 billion in funds to pay for water, wastewater, drainage and road infrastructure projects over the next 22 years.
The city is planning to implement a sweeping set of infrastructure master plans to help the municipality prepare for population growth up to 2041.
Long-time Kirkland Lake and area mining veteran Bill Glover has penned a new book.
According to Glover, Gold for a Mad Miner is a Centennial book that pays tribute to the gold mining Town of Kirkland Lake on its 100th birthday. The stories and photos span 100 years of booms and busts, triumphs and tragedies, heroes and villains.
In terms of what people will find within its pages, Glover explains the book will cover the mining history of Kirkland Lake in a number of interesting ways.

It's taken nearly a decade, but Red Rock is on its way to getting a new sewage treatment plant.
Federal and provincial representatives recently joined Red Rock community leaders to mark the groundbreaking of the water pollution control plant, a $25 million project that first received commitment nine years ago and then was reaffirmed last year with a promise of full funding from senior levels of government.
The Moon's surface is likely still rippling with quakes, caused by stressors ranging from interior contraction to tidal pressures, according to a new study published recently in Nature Geoscience.
The moon is a mystery. Its formation is still technically theoretical, although most astronomers agree that it was formed by a Mars-sized object colliding with Earth billions of years ago. After that formation, its interior cooled and shrunk, causing seismic activity that researchers say might continue today, according to NASA.
