Latest Effects of global warming Stories
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.
Global warming is causing plant and animal species to alter their geographic ranges and the timing of key life events such as migrating, flowering, or laying eggs.
The intense, small scale storms known as polar lows could have a tremendous impact on oceanic water circulation and climate predictions, a team of researchers from the US and UK have discovered.
A team of climate scientists suggest temperatures are going to be significantly warmer in all seasons in the next 30 years, especially in winter.
An international group of oceanographers has published new observations that may improve our ability to predict future changes in ice sheet mass.
On December 6, NOAA will release a technical report that estimates global mean sea level rise over the next century based on a comprehensive synthesis of existing scientific literature.
In a new study that ends 20 years of uncertainty, an international team of satellite experts have produced the most accurate assessment of ice losses from Antarctica and Greenland to date.
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...
