Latest Effects of global warming Stories
According to University of Sheffield research, published in the International Journal of Climatology, unusual Jet Stream changes were behind record surface melt of the Greenland Ice Sheet last summer.
The majority of Antarctica’s ice loss is caused by warm ocean waters eating away at the undersides of ice shelves, not the sudden release and breaking away of ice masses from glaciers.
Stevens Institute of Technology continues to shape the policy discussion around climate change and extreme weather, as Dr. Philip Orton and Dr.
A new study has found that purple sea urchins Strongylocentrotus purpuratus are capable of evolving in a way that copes with potential negative impacts of ocean acidification.
The public and policymakers alike were caught off guard when Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast of the US last fall. But the majority of the destruction came from the storm surge and flooding that followed the storm.
There is growing recognition that reductions in Arctic sea ice levels will influence patterns of atmospheric circulation both within and beyond the Arctic.
Australian scientists have narrowed the predicted range of global warming through groundbreaking new research.
Ocean data collected over 135 years ago by the crew of the HMS Challenger oceanographic expedition has helped confirm global warming.
Climate experts have reportedly discovered why the weather phenomenon known as El Nino typically peaks around Christmas and ends sometime between the months of February and April.
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...
