Latest Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation Stories
The recent slowdown in the warming rate of the Northern Hemisphere may be a result of internal variability of the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation -- a natural phenomenon related to sea surface temperatures, according to Penn State researchers.
The extreme cold weather observed across Europe and the east coast of the US in recent winters could be partly down to natural, long-term variations in sea surface temperatures, according to a new study published today.
Natural fluctuations in the ocean temperature in the North Atlantic have a significant impact on the climate in the northern hemisphere.
A team of New York University climatologists has concluded that the gradual warming of the North and Tropical Atlantic Ocean is adding to climate change in Antarctica.
Natural swings in the climate have significantly intensified Northern Hemisphere monsoon rainfall, showing that these swings must be taken into account for climate predictions in the coming decades.
The convergence in the coming year of three cyclical conditions affecting ocean temperatures and weather is likely to create unprecedented challenges for states that depend on water from the Colorado River.
The kinds of devastating droughts that claimed the lives of more than 100,000 people in Africaâ€™s Sahel region in the 1960â€™s and 70â€™s may represent a normal natural occurrence rather than an anomaly, according to new research.
Scientists at Germanyâ€™s Kiel University predict the Earthâ€™s temperature will stay roughly the same in the coming decade as the planetâ€™s natural climate cycle enters a cooling phase.
By Jim Loney MIAMI (Reuters) - Global warming is affecting the intensity of Atlantic hurricanes, according to a new study by a university professor in Florida who says his research provides the first direct link between climate change and storm strength.
