Monsoons Will Adapt To Climate Change Gradually


A new model emerges for monsoons in a changing global climate[more]

Heat Expansion Of Oceans "Underestimated"


We have underestimated how much the heat-related expansion of the water mass in the oceans contributes to a global rise in sea level, claim researchers[more]

Record Heat Statistically Pinned On Human Warming


Record warm years almost certainly due to human-made climate change. The odds that 13 of the 15 warmest years would ocur in this century are between 1 in 5000 and 1 in 170,000, a new study by an international team of scientists...[more]

New Gravity Data Helps Monitor Antarctic Changes


Over the last decade, international researchers have deployed aircraft equipped with gravity meters to collect a huge amount of new gravity data over Antarctica. The latest gravity anomaly dataset is based on 13 million data...[more]

Melting Greenland Ice Sheet "Freshening" North Atlantic


Scientists find influx of freshwater from the Greenland ice sheet is "freshening" the North Atlantic Ocean and could disrupt the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, an important component of global ocean circulation[more]

Ozone Drives Rainforest Cloud Formation


Ozone may play pivotal role in rainforest cloud creation, according to new research. In rainforests, convective storms transport ozone-rich air to the surface. Ozone levels remain enhanced for after the passage of storms which...[more]

Warmer Oceans Could Cause More Powerful Storms


Simulations of Hurricane Sandy with warmer ocean temperatures resulted in storms more than twice as destructive as Sandy, according to new research[more]

Analysis Links Climate Change To Human Emissions


Scientists apply new method to determine whether specific climate impacts can be traced to human-caused emissions. The analysis reveals that almost two-thirds of the listed impacts related specifically to warming over land and...[more]

Second Paper Suggests Early Farmers Kept Earth Warm


Mounting evidence suggests early agriculture staved off global cooling, according to a new paper in Reviews of Geophysics. This follows research published last week in Nature suggesting ancient farmers may have prevented a...[more]

UK Met Office: 2015 Warmest Year On Record


UK Met Office agrees with NASA and NOAA in ranking 2015 as the warmest year on record in terms of global surface temperatures[more]

NASA and NOAA Say 2015 Shattered Temperature Records


NASA and NOAA claim their analyses reveal "record-shattering" global warm surface temperatures in 2015. This is in contrast to two separate analyses of satellite data showing global atmospheric temperatures last year were the...[more]

Did Early Agricultural CO2 Save Earth From An Ice Age?


Earth has had a narrow escape from a new ice age possibly due to humanity's early CO2 emissions, according to a paper in Nature. Modelling studies looking at the link between insolation and CO2 confirm that we would now be...[more]
