Southern Ocean Winds Keep Antarctica Cold And Australia Dry
2014-05-12 03:02:49

[ Watch The Video: Southern Ocean Winds Keep Antarctica Cool, Australia Dry ] Australian National University New Australian National University-led research has explained why Antarctica is not warming as much as other continents, and why southern Australia is recording more droughts. Researchers have found rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are strengthening the stormy Southern Ocean winds which deliver rain to southern Australia, but pushing them further south...

Join Arizona-based American Cooling and Heating in this study of the economic consequences associated with combating human-triggered climate change. Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) May 10, 2014 Managing Global Warming, Climate Change and the Economic Fallout After enduring over a decade of year-by-year temperature increases averaging nearly two degrees Fahrenheit, Arizona residents don’t tend to argue the validity of global warming or the reality of undesirable climate change. The heat is here. This...

Arizona-Based, American Cooling and Heating releases details of the three-stage effect of rural climate change. This ACH 2014 global warming updates examines rural economics, populations, prosperity and livelihood. Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) April 24, 2014 The Three-Stage Cause and Effects of Rural Climate Change Climate change as defined by a layperson might simply declare global warming the result of man-inflamed changes in global climate. Such a brief definition would not be far off base....

Experts Warn Wildlife Response To Climate Change Is Likely Underestimated
2014-04-22 15:13:43

University of Massachusetts at Amherst Analyzing thousands of breeding bird surveys sent in by citizen scientists across the western United States and Canada over 35 years, wildlife researchers report that most of the 40 songbird species they studied shifted either northward or toward higher elevation in response to climate change, but did not necessarily do both. This means that most previous studies of potential climate change impacts on wildlife that looked only at one factor or the...

Antarctica Was A Balmy 72 Degrees Fahrenheit During The Eocene
2014-04-22 13:07:31

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Previous studies have shown that Antarctica was a much warmer continent 40 to 50 million years ago and a new report from a team of American, Dutch and Australian researchers has revealed finer details on the milder temperature that blanketed the region at the time. Published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the new report revealed that parts of Antarctica were as warm as Coastal California and sea...

Climate Change Hidden Impacts Detailed In New Moth Study
2014-04-15 09:11:36

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new climate change study conducted on sub-Arctic moths living in Finland has revealed mixed results: moths seem to be thriving despite a warmer, wetter climate – while an as-yet-unknown force is apparently masking the expected effects of this localized climate change. "You see it getting warmer, you see it getting wetter and you see that the moth populations are either staying the same or going up. So you might think, 'Great. The...

Researchers Decipher Climate Paradox From The Miocene Using Complex Model Simulations
2014-04-14 12:34:00

AWI Scientists of the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), have deciphered a supposed climate paradox from the Miocene era by means of complex model simulations. When the Antarctic ice sheet grew to its present-day size around 14 million years ago, it did not get colder everywhere on the Earth, but there were regions that became warmer. A physical contradiction? No, as AWI experts now found out, the expansion of the ice sheet on the Antarctic...

New report describes climate change risks for northern Michigan forests In the last 100 years, Michigan has become warmer, with more rain coming through heavy downpours. Climate models suggest that the state will continue to warm and variability in precipitation patterns will increase, which will have consequences for the state’s forests. A new U.S. Forest Service report describes the potential risks and opportunities of climate change for forests in the eastern Upper Peninsula and...

Slowdown Of Global Warming In Northern Hemisphere
2014-04-08 13:44:55

By A'ndrea Elyse Messer, Penn State 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. "Some researchers have in the past attributed a portion of Northern Hemispheric warming to a warm phase of the AMO," said Michael E. Mann, Distinguished Professor of Meteorology. "The true AMO signal,...

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. Researchers from the University of California Irvine have shown that a phenomenon known as the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO)—a natural pattern of variation in North Atlantic sea surface temperatures that switches between a positive and negative phase every 60-70...

Scots Pine
2014-04-14 10:50:20

Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) is the only native pine to Europe and Asia and was introduced in New Zealand and the colder climates of North America. The Scots pine grows at sea level to 3281 feet in the northern regions and 3937-8530 feet in the south. The Scots pine grows to heights of 114 feet with a trunk that is just over three feet through. The bark is thick and dark grey-brown on the lower trunk with the upper trunk having bark that is thin and orange. The trunk is long and straight...

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...

Post Weather Report From August 2, 2012
2012-08-03 11:43:48

Four major events occurred yesterday, the first being the formation of Tropical Storm Ernesto, which is now located just east of the Windward Islands with winds near 45 knots. The second was the heat in the Southern Plains as many places saw temps over 100F with heat index values near 105-110 for the region. High temperatures are again one of the main story makers across the country. 100 degree temperatures continue to plague Texas and Oklahoma. Eleven out of the last 14 days in...

Post Weather Report From September 5, 2012

September 5: The southwest was encompassed in the monsoon rains yesterday bringing areas of flash flooding to portions of Arizona. Another smaller but large flooding event occurred along the Mississippi Gulf Coast where places in Jackson County received 7inches of rainfall in 2 1/2hours which lead to large flooding problems of already saturated grounds from Isaac-1. The heat persisted in Eastern Texas and into Louisiana and northward into Arkansas as some places felt temps hit the100’s with...

Honolulu is located in the Pacific Ocean and has a mostly marine time climate. Honolulu has a pretty consistent temperature average from month to month. This is a look at the La-Nina impacts on the local area. January 2010: For the month of January it is typical to see average high temps in the 80’s while overnight lows drop into the 70’s. During the El-Nino event January temps were 60% of the month at the normal, while 40% of the month was marked with above temps and 0% of the month...
