Latest Effects of global warming Stories
Researchers from the University of Washington and the German Space Agency (DLR) say that a Greenland glacier is slipping off into the ocean at a speed never before seen.
A number of floating ice shelves in Antarctica are at risk of disappearing entirely in the next 200 years, as global warming reduces their snow cover.
This week, a high-precision radar instrument from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) left for Iceland to create detailed maps of how glaciers move in the dead of winter.
More long-term research is necessary for an accurate determination of how marine species will cope with increasing ocean acidification, according to new research.
A team of New York University climatologists has concluded that the gradual warming of the North and Tropical Atlantic Ocean is adding to climate change in Antarctica.
A new analysis of rain patterns has revealed that extreme El Niño events, such as the 1983 heat wave that caused Australia’s Ash Wednesday bushfires, will double as the planet warms in the years ahead.
As glaciers melt and sea levels rise due to global warming, coastal regions and islands are beginning to panic. But even places as high up in the mountains as Tibet can face the negative consequences of melting glaciers.
Ocean researchers working on the coral reefs of Palau in 2011 and 2012 made two unexpected discoveries that could provide insight into corals' resistance and resilience to ocean acidification, and aid in the creation of a plan to protect them.
Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier is now in an irreversible retreat, according to a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change.
Sea-level changes projected to occur around Los Angeles could increase the flood risk for the coastal city’s roads, wastewater systems and low-altitude communities, University of Southern California (USC) researchers claim in a new report.
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...
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...
El-Nino is marked with having warmer waters in the Pacific Ocean, so how can it have impacts on Austin Texas. This is a look at what occurred during an EL-Nino event as we evaluate three months of the cycle. January 2012- March 2012 La-Nina Impacts on Austin TX Climate January 2012 Normal temperatures for the month are usually around 40-60F. Examining what occurred during the month of January during an EL-Nino event the temps where average 40% of the month. While, 21% of the month...
