Study Predicts Arctic Sea Ice Loss Slow Down


A new paper forecasts that overall winter sea ice extent will remain steady in the near future. This research underlines the significance of satellite data showing that Arctic sea ice extent now is broadly similar to that...[more]

RSS: November 2015 Was Warmest November


Global atmospheric temperatures in November were the highest recorded for any November since satellite measurements began, according to data from RSS[more]

Arctic Sea Ice In November In Line With Last Decade


Arctic sea ice extent in November was the sixth lowest on record but in line with levels seen during the last decade and above those reported in 2006 and 2007. The long term rate of decline since 1979 now stands at 4.7 per cent...[more]

Hurricane Season: Atlantic Quiet But Pacific Active


The 2015 hurricane season ended with below-normal activity in the Atlantic while active eastern and central Pacific regions shattered records[more]

Paleo Research Hints At Rapid Warming In The Past


Using a core sample from the Santa Barbara Basin, UCSB researchers decipher the history of paleoclimate change with surprising results[more]

Imminent Solar Chill Predicted By Physicists


Solar scientists have reconstructed the sun's activity and predicted it until the year 3200 showing that solar activity decreases dramatically about every 350 years and that an upcoming decrease in solar activity begins now[more]

Arctic Ocean Black Carbon May Increase With Warming


Climate change is likely to increase black carbon input to the Arctic Ocean, according to study[more]

Major Loss Of Alaskan Permafrost Predicted


Researchers project that the near-surface permafrost that presently underlies 38 percent of boreal and arctic Alaska would be reduced by 16 to 24 percent by the end of the century[more]

Major Volcanic Eruptions Linked To Rapid Climate Change


Eight known radiometrically-dated large volcanic eruptions in the northern hemisphere within the last 80,000 years have been linked with abrupt Greenland cooling[more]

Research Highlights Past Antarctic Runaway Ice Loss


A new study reveals evidence from the East Antarctic Ice Sheet of rapid glacier thinning that occurred approximately 7,000 years ago confirming the potential for runaway ice loss in Antarctica[more]

El Nino Drives November Air Temperatures To New High


Global atmospheric temperatures were the warmest on record for any November since satellite measurements began, driven up by the ongoing El Nino Pacific Ocean warming event, according to UAH data. Comparison of tropical air...[more]
