New research by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory suggests global ocean warming has been underestimated by 24 to 58 percent. The research appears in the October 5 issue of the journal Nature Climate Change. Livermore, California (PRWEB) October 07, 2014 Using satellite observations and a large suite of climate models, Lawrence Livermore scientists have found that long-term ocean warming in the upper 700 meters of Southern Hemisphere oceans has likely been underestimated....

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online 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. The study researchers, from at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California, added that this finding, reported in the journal Nature Climate Change, does not solve the mystery of why global warming...

WASHINGTON, Oct. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The cold waters of Earth's deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005, according to a new NASA study, leaving unsolved the mystery of why global warming appears to have slowed in recent years. http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20081007/38461LOGO Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, analyzed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013 and found the ocean abyss below 1.24...

ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science 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. The research published in Nature Communications found that in the past, when ocean temperatures around Antarctica became more layered - with a warm layer of water below a cold surface layer - ice sheets and...

Hebrew University of Jerusalem Over 35 years, a 40% reduction in calcium carbonate deposits in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef An expedition from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Carnegie Institute of Science has measured a roughly 40% reduction in the rate of calcium carbonate deposited in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef in the last 35 years — a scenario that could damage the reef framework and endanger the entire coral ecosystem. Coral reefs are the most ecologically...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science (ARCCSS) 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. The findings, reported in five separate papers in a recent issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS), highlight the significant influence that global...

Greenland Ice Sheet

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Prevailing models from the melting of the Greenland ice sheet have made the calculation that the ice sheet sits atop hard bedrock. A new study from a team of British and American scientists has thrown out that assumption, however, and found that the ice sheet may be melting faster than previously thought. Published in the journal Nature Communications, the team’s report is based on the calculation, derived from ground surveys,...

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

University of Southern Denmark Climate change is a fact, and most of the warming is caused by human activity. The Arctic is now so warm that the extent of sea ice has decreased by about 30 pct. in summer and in winter, sea ice is getting thinner. 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. Due to global warming, larger and larger areas of...

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...

If you live Honolulu Hawaii or the surrounding low elevation area’s this is what you can roughly expect to see with impacts of the three features below when it comes to your heating and cooling budget. The above graph shows the situations that occurred during previous phases of all three events such as normal conditions along with EL-Nino and La-Nina. During a normal cycle it is easy to see that the cooling degree days during March were around 355.5 days. During the same month of March...
