Unclouding Our View Of Future Climate
2014-05-22 03:58:27

[ Watch The Video: Atmospheric General Circulation Changes Due To Increased Greenhouse Gases ] Carol Rasmussen, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory If we had a second Earth, we could experiment with its atmosphere to see how increased levels of greenhouse gases would change it, without the risks that come with performing such an experiment. Since we don’t, scientists use global climate models. In the virtual Earths of the models, interlocking mathematical equations take the place...

Low Carbon Fuel Standard, cap-and trade-program cutting transportation pollution statewide SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new report, Driving California Forward from Environmental Defense Fund and the American Lung Association in California, provides a comprehensive health and economic benefit analysis of California's fuels policies within the voter-supported landmark climate law, AB 32. The report finds that the state's Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) and...

Power Plant Emissions Verified Remotely At Four Corners Sites
2014-05-20 03:06:50

Los Alamos National Laboratory The study is the first to show that space-based techniques can successfully verify international regulations on fossil energy emissions. Air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from two coal-fired power plants in the Four Corners area of northwest New Mexico, the largest point source of pollution in America, were measured remotely by a Los Alamos National Laboratory team. Led by Laboratory senior scientist Manvendra Dubey, the study is the first to...

CHIRPS rainfall dataset
2014-05-16 06:16:47

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Despite the fact that it has become a widely accepted practice to use modern weather satellites to monitor terrestrial rainfall, establishing a reliable context for relating space-based rainfall observations to current and historical ground-based rainfall data has been difficult. A team of researchers from UC Santa Barbara and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) has developed a new dataset that can be used for environmental...

Dr. Ross McKitrick addressed a packed house in Calgary as he walked the audience through the policy implications of the ongoing “pause” in global warming in which climate models continue to overestimate warming when compared to real world data. Economic models are set to match climate models, so they too overestimate the effect of carbon dioxide emissions; these discrepancies will be resolved in the next few years, he explained. Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) May 15, 2014 Friends of...

Abundant Shale Gas Will Not Likely Alter Climate Predictions
2014-05-15 08:27:49

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Climatologists and energy scientists know that replacing higher-emission energy sources with natural gas will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. According to a new study from Duke University, however, even without policies specifically designed to reduce greenhouse gases, abundant shale gas will not cause a substantial change in total emissions. The study was published in a recent issue of Environmental Science and Technology. The...

Examining Fate Of Methane Following The Deepwater Horizon Spill
2014-05-12 03:18:56

By James Hataway, University of Georgia The 2010 Deepwater Horizon blowout discharged roughly five million barrels of oil and up to 500,000 metric tonnes of natural gas into Gulf of Mexico offshore waters over a period of 84 days. In the face of a seemingly insurmountable cleanup effort, many were relieved by reports following the disaster that naturally-occurring microbes had consumed much of the gas and oil. Now, a team of researchers led by University of Georgia marine scientists...

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...

Urban Heat Island
2013-04-02 15:35:21

An urban heat island (UHI) is a metropolitan area that is drastically warmer than its surrounding rural areas because of human activities. The phenomenon was first looked into and described by Luke Howard during the 1810s, although he wasn’t the one to name the phenomenon. The difference in temperature is normally bigger at night as opposed to during the day, and it most obvious when winds are weak. Seasonally, UHI is seen during the summer and the winter. The key cause of the urban heat...

Impact Of Growing Degree Days For Baltimore In March
2013-01-13 08:26:45

Growing Degree Days are another huge part of our lives even though we may not deal with them directly. Growing degree days have to deal with the growing of fruits and vegetables along with other various crops that are grown throughout the United States for our personal use. As we examine the Baltimore Maryland area we can see how the impacts of a normal, El-Nino and La-Nina cycle have an impact on just the one month of March. These numbers are based on 50F which is the base number used for...

Climate Impact On Your Budget For Bismarck, North Dakota
2012-09-18 13:29:03

If you live in or around Bismarck North Dakota the graph shows you what you can roughly expect when it comes to heating and cooling your house during the ENSO Phases. Bismarck North Dakota, with its northern latitude, does have an impact on what type of heating and cooling it sees. During an Normal Phase the HDD for the region hits about 1348 on average. When the region enters into an El-Nino they can expect the amount of HDD’s to decrease to around 970 which really helps cut down on the...

ENSO Effects On Ocean Waters

The above graph highlights how the ENSO has an impact on water temps. Northern Gulf of Mexico during EL-Nino: The first part of March during this EL-Nino cycle saw water temps in the 56-60F range, while the 8-14th saw water temps warm to the 60-64F range. By the third week of March temps had maintained 60-64F. The last week of March the temps dropped back to around 56-60F. Northern Gulf of Mexico during LA-Nina: The first week of March saw water temps approach the 70-72F range, by the...

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...
