Latest Effects of global warming Stories
A new study has traced glacial ice entering the ocean along the western Antarctic Peninsula using a unique 12,000-year record of microscopic marine algae fossils.
An international team of scientists has turned its attention to glacial melting in the tropical Andes, and their conclusions indicate that the situation is even more dire than originally suspected.
Climate change could cause soil to grow warmer and release additional carbon dioxide into the air, enhancing the effects of global warming, a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change has discovered.
Because of global warming, heat waves will become harsher and intense rainstorms will become more common in the US Midwest over the next couple of decades, claims a new report released by the federal government last week.
The uncertainty of future sea level rise is getting a little clearer thanks to research being conducted by a team of scientists.
Black carbon is the second largest man-made contributor to global warming and its influence on climate has been greatly underestimated, according to the first quantitative and comprehensive analysis of this issue.
US government scientists warn global warming is already having a notable impact on the day-to-day lives of Americans.
Two professors with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have taken on a new approach to assess future sea level rise due to the world’s melting ice sheets.
Scientists have discovered corals at Australia’s Great Barrier Reef at depths that were previously believed to be uninhabitable.
A portion of the Antarctic ice sheet is warming nearly twice as quickly as experts had previously believed, which could increase the region's future contribution to rising sea levels, a team of researchers from the Ohio State University has discovered.
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...
