Latest Climate history Stories
Using sediments from a remote lake, researchers from Brown University have assembled a 60,000-year record of rainfall in central Indonesia. The analysis reveals important new details about the climate history of a region that wields a substantial influence on the global climate as a whole.
Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) to Issue Its Critique of the United Nations’ IPCC Working Groups II and III Reports at National Press Club on April 9
Far beneath the surface of the ocean, deep currents act as conveyer belts, channeling heat, carbon, oxygen and nutrients around the globe.
In a region of the Southern Ocean, iron fertilization caused plankton to thrive during the last ice age, according to a new study from Princeton University and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich.
British researchers who typically study polar moss samples because they provide indications of past climate conditions have found that Antarctic moss can survive trapped under ice for over 1,500 years.
Using a cutting-edge research technique, UCLA researchers have reconstructed the temperature history of a region that plays a major role in determining climate around the world.
Secretary Kerry recently claimed Indonesia was at risk of sea level rise due to global warming and climate change, dismissing the objections of what he calls a “tiny minority of shoddy scientists”;
Several types of plants and animals were able to survive ice ages of the past thanks to the heat and steam produced by volcanoes, according to research appearing in a recent edition of PNAS.
A new NASA study shows Earth's climate likely will continue to warm during this century on track with previous estimates, despite the recent slowdown in the rate of global warming.
A 1,000-year period of pronounced climate variability occurring in Europe could have been the result of changes in the sun’s energy output, according to research published in Sunday’s edition of the journal Nature Geoscience.
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...
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...
