Method Developed To Predict Local Climate Change


Approach can be used in any mountainous or hilly area with a reasonable number of weather stations measuring temperature and precipitation[more]

Arctic Ocean Response To Fresh Water Is Different


Scenarios with freshwater leading to sluggish currents and less heat being transported to northern high latitudes have been seen as a potential cause for rapid climate changes. In two recent studies researchers have shown that...[more]

Ice Age Fresh Water Changed Pacific Circulation


The catastrophic failure of a South American Ice Age dam changed the Pacific Ocean circulation and climate, according to new research[more]

Clams Date Ancient Methane Seeps In The Arctic


A bed of fossilized, methane dependent clams has for the first time been observed in the high Arctic. It tells the story of a thousand year long methane release event[more]

NASA Shows How Land Water Storage Affects Sea Level


New measurements from a NASA satellite have allowed researchers to identify and quantify, for the first time, how climate-driven increases of liquid water storage on land have affected the rate of sea level rise[more]

Research Questions West Antarctic Ice Sheet Stability


Exceeding critical temperature limits in the Southern Ocean may cause the collapse of ice sheets and a sharp rise in sea levels, claims a new paper which models what happened in the past[more]

Study: Ice-Shelf Loss Leads To Faster Sea Level Rise


Complex model shows how the “buttressing” role of ice shelves is impaired due to their decline speeding the movement of coastal glaciers into the sea [more]

Paper Looks At Long Term CO2 Climate Impact


Study considers the next 10,000 years, and finds that the impact of another three centuries of carbon pollution will persist millennia after the carbon dioxide releases cease[more]

Late Antique Little Ice Age Found 1500 Years Ago


Old trees reveal Late Antique Little Ice Age (LALIA) around 1,500 years ago. Potential links between this period of cool temperatures and socio-political changes[more]

NSIDC: Lowest January Arctic Sea Ice In Satellite Era


Arctic sea ice extent in January was the lowest - just - recorded in the era of satellite measurements which began back in 1979[more]

RSS Data Shows Warmest January In Satellite Era


Global atmospheric temperatures last month as measured by satellite instruments and analysed by RSS shows that it was the warmest January since satellite monitoring began - following on from the warmest December[more]
