New research by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory suggests global ocean warming has been underestimated by 24 to 58 percent.

Water expands as it gets warmer and climatologists have suspected that warming in the deep ocean may add to rising sea levels around the world. However, a new study has found evidence that the deep ocean is not warming measurably.

Current changes in the ocean around Antarctica are disturbingly close to conditions 14,000 years ago that new research shows may have led to the rapid melting of Antarctic ice and an abrupt 3-4 meter rise in global sea level.

Causes Of California Drought Linked To Human-caused Climate Change

The atmospheric conditions associated with the unprecedented drought currently afflicting California are "very likely" linked to human-caused climate change, Stanford scientists say.

A new study from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science demonstrates that the devastating effects of the hottest year on record in Australia - 2013 - would not have been possible without the influence of human-caused global warming.

Sea Ice Helps Remove CO2 From The Atmosphere
2014-09-23 03:30:21

New research has shown that sea ice removes CO2 from the atmosphere. If Arctic sea ice is reduced, we may therefore be facing an increase of atmospheric concentration of CO2, researchers warn.

Some Faster Lizards Can Survive Climate Change: Study

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...
