New Sea Level Threat Created From Changing Antarctic Winds
2014-07-07 03:55:30

Australian Research Council's Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science New research shows projected changes in the winds circling the Antarctic may accelerate global sea level rise significantly more than previously estimated. Changes to Antarctic winds have already been linked to southern Australia’s drying climate but now it appears they may also have a profound impact on warming ocean temperatures under the ice shelves along the coastline of West and East Antarctic....

History Of Volcanic Forcing Identified In Antarctic Ice Cores
2014-07-07 09:31:23

Gerard LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A team of scientists from Reno, Nevada’s Desert Research Institute (DRI), led by Michael Sigl and Joe McConnell, has reconstructed historic volcanic sulfate emissions from the Southern Hemisphere. It is considered to be the most accurate and defined reconstruction to date, and was published in a manuscript in the online addition of Nature Climate Change. Included in the study and submitting ice core samples and measurements, were...

University of Bristol The impact of the greenhouse gas CO2 on the Earth's temperature is well established by climate models and temperature records over the past 100 years, as well as coupled records of carbon dioxide concentration and temperature throughout Earth history. However, past temperature records have suggested that warming is largely confined to mid-to-high latitudes, especially the poles, whereas tropical temperatures appear to be relatively stable: the tropical thermostat...

Greenland Ice Sheet Collapse Linked To Sea Level Rise 400,000 Years Ago: Study
2014-06-26 03:26:40

Oregon State University A new study suggests that a warming period more than 400,000 years ago pushed the Greenland ice sheet past its stability threshold, resulting in a nearly complete deglaciation of southern Greenland and raising global sea levels some 4-6 meters. The study is one of the first to zero in on how the vast Greenland ice sheet responded to warmer temperatures during that period, which were caused by changes in the Earth's orbit around the sun. Results of the study,...

Friends of Science Society today posted on its website a letter to all companies recently targeted by Greenpeace for ‘climate crimes’ stating that, in the opinion of Friends of Science, Greenpeace fails to include current climate science evidence that shows an unpredicted, natural hiatus in global warming of 16+ years. Friends of Science recent billboard campaign stating "The sun is the main driver of climate change..." has attracted the attention of international media....

KIGAM Overturns common ideas about the different types of climate changes between the middle latitude areas of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres Korean research team revealed conflicting climate change patterns between the middle latitude areas of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres in relation to glacial and interglacial cycles which have been puzzled for the past 60 years. Doctor Kyoung-nam Jo from the Quaternary Geology Department of the Korea Institute of Geoscience and...

ALBANY, N.Y., June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Through a new National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, University at Albany atmospheric scientist Aiguo Dai is studying more than a century of climate simulations in order to differentiate natural from man-induced forces affecting global drought and precipitation. The study's results will help interpret recent extreme climate events, such as recent years' droughts and heat waves in the Southwest U.S., and could reveal critical...

Arctic Amplification Has Reduced Risk Of Extreme Cold Weather
2014-06-16 04:41:53

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Despite the fact that many parts of the United States experienced extremely cold conditions this past winter, the risk of such conditions increasing as a result of climate change is unlikely, according to research appearing in the latest edition of Nature Climate Change. Study author Dr. James Screen of the University of Exeter reports that the Arctic amplification phenomenon, which refers to the increased warming rate experienced...

Does Solar Activity Have Influence On Earth's Global Warming?
2014-06-06 03:12:26

Science China Press A recent study demonstrates the existence of significant resonance cycles and high correlations between solar activity and the Earth's averaged surface temperature during centuries. This provides a new clue to reveal the phenomenon of global warming in recent years. Their work, entitled "Periodicities of solar activity and the surface temperature variation of the Earth and their correlations" was published in CHINESE SCIENCE BULLETIN (In Chinese) 2014 No.14 with the...

explaining the Last Glacial Maximum

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A team of MIT scientists has turned to the Southern Ocean in search of an explanation for the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), a period in the Earth's climate history during which the northern continents were covered by ice sheets, according to new research appearing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Plankton fossils in deep-sea sediments contain chemical traces that reveal rearranged ocean water masses, as well...

Climate Change
2013-04-01 11:05:27

Climate change is a substantial and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods of time ranging from decades to millions of years. It might be a change in the average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions. Climate change is a result of factors that include oceanic processes, biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received buy Earth, volcanic eruptions, and plate tectonics, and human induced alterations...

Current Sea Level Rise
2013-04-01 10:39:21

The sea levels all around the world are rising. Current sea-level rise has the potential to affect human populations and the natural environment. Two key factors have contributed to the observed sea level rise. The first is thermal expansion: as the ocean water warms, it expands. The second is from the influence of land-based ice because of increased melting. The major store of water on land is found in the glaciers and the ice sheets. The rising of sea levels is one of several lines of...
