WASHINGTON, Sept. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Over the past few decades, average global temperatures have been on the rise, and this warming is happening two to three times faster in the Arctic. As the region's summer comes to a close, NASA is hard at work studying how rising temperatures are affecting the Arctic. http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20081007/38461LOGO NASA researchers this summer and fall are carrying out three Alaska-based airborne research campaigns aimed...

UNITY, Maine, Sept. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Despite overwhelming scientific evidence supporting the existence of human caused climate change, some still vehemently deny its existence. In 2013, a Pew study that was cited by national media revealed that only 1 in 4 Americans see global warming as a threat. The reasons why are complex and varied, but with the right approach, should not prove to be insurmountable. Climate change will be front-and-center at the forthcoming...

Chuck Bednar for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Propelled by the largest single-year increase in carbon dioxide in three decades, the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached record highs in 2013, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reported on Tuesday. According to the agency’s annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin, there was a 34 percent increase in radiative forcing (the warming effect on our climate) due to CO2, methane and nitrous oxide. The report found that...

Mark Floyd, Oregon State University A new study of three ice cores from Greenland documents the warming of the large ice sheet at the end of the last ice age – resolving a long-standing paradox over when that warming occurred. Large ice sheets covered North America and northern Europe some 20,000 years ago during the coldest part of the ice age, when global average temperatures were about four degrees Celsius (or seven degrees Fahrenheit) colder than during pre-industrial times. And...

Melissa Osgood, Cornell University Due to global warming, scientists say, the chances of the southwestern United States experiencing a decade long drought is at least 50 percent, and the chances of a “megadrought” – one that lasts over 30 years – ranges from 20 to 50 percent over the next century. [ Watch the Video: What is Global Warming? ] The study by Cornell University, University of Arizona and U.S. Geological Survey researchers will be published in a forthcoming issue...

Urban Heat Island
2013-04-02 15:35:21

An urban heat island (UHI) is a metropolitan area that is drastically warmer than its surrounding rural areas because of human activities. The phenomenon was first looked into and described by Luke Howard during the 1810s, although he wasn’t the one to name the phenomenon. The difference in temperature is normally bigger at night as opposed to during the day, and it most obvious when winds are weak. Seasonally, UHI is seen during the summer and the winter. The key cause of the urban heat...

Climate Change
2013-04-01 11:05:27

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...

Being a meteorologist for over thirteen years you start to take note of many things in the atmosphere and how they repeat themselves. Our Climate is no different. The definition of climate is stated as: the collective weather data in regards to moisture and temperature for over 30 years for the same location. So to better understand our climate we need to look at this. First, we have average temperatures for given places based on the 30 year average. Some years the temps are warmer or...

The water cycle (or hydrologic cycle) describes the continuous movement of water above, below, and on the planet. Since the water cycle is in fact a "cycle", there is no beginning or end. Water exists in three states: liquid, vapor, and ice. Although the balance of water on our planet is fairly constant, individual water molecules may come and go. The water cycle is driven by the sun. The sun heats the oceans and allows water to evaporate into the air. The sun also heats snow and ice which...

Arctic haze is a phenomenon that occurs in the atmosphere at high latitudes in the Arctic due to air pollution. What distinguishes Arctic haze from haze found elsewhere, is the ability of its chemical ingredients to endure in the atmosphere for a longer period of time compared to other pollutants. Due to limited snowfall, rain, or turbulent air to displace pollutants from the polar air in the spring, Arctic haze can continue for more than a month in the northern atmosphere. Arctic haze was...
