Latest Climate history Stories
A team of scientists from Reno, Nevada’s Desert Research Institute (DRI) led by Michael Sigl and Joe McConnell have reconstructed historic volcanic sulfate emissions from the Southern Hemisphere.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
A researcher from the Perth, Australia-based Curtin University has definitively shown how the first mass extinction event in the history of complex life was caused by ancient volcanic eruptions on his own continent some 510 million years ago
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...
