Greenland's 2012 Record Ice Melt Due To Thin Cloud Cover
2013-04-04 11:15:46

Global sea levels would rise by 24 feet if the sheet of ice covering Greenland were to melt in its entirety tomorrow. But it is very unlikely that nearly two million cubic miles of ice will wash into the ocean overnight.

Antarctic Cloud Cover Caused Glitch In Tropical Rainfall Model

One would not assume that cloud cover over Antactica's Southern Ocean could cause rainfall in Zambia or the tropical island of Java. New research from the University of Washington, however, finds that a phantom band of rainfall just south of the equator that does not occur in reality is caused by poor simulation of the cloud cover thousands of miles farther to the south.

Rainforests May Be Resilient To Climate Change

Tropical forests may be more resistant to the effects of greenhouse gas emissions than previously believed, according to a new study published online this week in the journal Nature Geoscience.

Winters Will Be Warmer And Wetter In The Northeast By 2070
2012-12-13 11:01:04

A team of climate scientists suggest temperatures are going to be significantly warmer in all seasons in the next 30 years, especially in winter.

Greenland Could Be Affected By Warming Temperatures

There are almost as many global climate models as there are climate scientists. Even with all of these models, however, it's very difficult to pin down how warming temperatures globally will affect any specific region.

More Accurate Climate Models Show Higher Global Temperatures

Regardless of which side of the issue you might stand on, regarding climate change and what is going to happen in the future, there is one thing we can all agree on: This summer was HOT!

At the end of the 21st century, the temperature in the Baltic Sea will be higher and the salt content lower than at any time since 1850.

Climate Models Work For Mars Too
2012-10-17 10:56:49

According to a new study, scientific modeling methods that predicated climate change on Earth can also be used on Mars as well.

MAGIC Launches For Yearlong Climate Study

Climate instruments mounted aboard the Horizon Spirit container ship begin taking data

Predictions Put To The Test By Climate Scientists
2012-09-19 08:21:49

A new study has found that climate-prediction models are good at predicting long-term climate patterns on a global scale but lose their edge when applied to time frames shorter than three decades and on sub-continental scales.
