Warmest European Summers For Two Millennia

29.01.2016

Recent summer temperatures in Europe are likely the warmest of the last two millennia, say researchers[more]


Statisticians Probe Tree Ring Climate Data

29.01.2016

Uncertainties in tree-ring-based climate reconstructions probed. Results suggest that there is less certainty than implied by a reconstruction developed using any one set of assumptions[more]


MJO Model Explains Rainstorm Behaviour

29.01.2016

Mathematical model explains huge recurring rainstorms in the tropical Indian and Pacific oceans [more]


Monsoons Will Adapt To Climate Change Gradually

29.01.2016

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


Heat Expansion Of Oceans "Underestimated"

29.01.2016

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

29.01.2016

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

29.01.2016

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

29.01.2016

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

29.01.2016

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

22.01.2016

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

22.01.2016

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]
