A national volunteer project, 4 years in the making, and now published as a peer reviewed scientific study, has discovered that the majority of the US climate monitoring network does not meet technical requirements for long term climate monitoring. Only 1 in 10 NOAA stations were found to meet siting criteria to be free of urbanization encroachment. The study raises questions about the accuracy and certainty of the climate record. Boulder, CO (PRWEB) May 11, 2011 The discovery that poor...

El Nino and its partner La Nina, the warm and cold phases in the eastern half of the tropical Pacific, play havoc with climate worldwide. Predicting El Nino events more than several months ahead is now routine, but predicting how it will change in a warming world has been hampered by the short instrumental record. An international team of climate scientists has now shown that annually resolved tree-ring records from North America, particularly from the US Southwest, give a continuous...

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Global surface temperatures in 2010 tied 2005 as the warmest on record, according to an analysis released Wednesday by researchers at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20081007/38461LOGO) The two years differed by less than 0.018 degrees Fahrenheit. The difference is smaller than the uncertainty in comparing the temperatures of recent years, putting them into a...

The U.K. Met Office's Hadley Center said that the global temperature has jumped over the past 160 years, but short-term trends in temperature and sea ice seem to be at odds with each other and needs more research. The Hadley Center found several factors that indicate a warming world and said 2010 has been one of the warmest years on record. The report used the work of over 20 institutions around the world and a range of measurements from satellites, weather balloons, weather stations, ocean...

An unparalleled heat wave in eastern Europe, coupled with intense droughts and fires around Moscow, put Earth's temperatures in the headlines this summer. Likewise, a string of exceptionally warm days in July in the eastern United States strained power grids, forced nursing home evacuations, and slowed transit systems. Both high-profile events reinvigorated questions about humanity's role in climate change. But, from a global perspective, how warm was the summer exactly? How did the summer's...

2009 One Of The Warmest Years A new analysis of global surface temperatures by NASA scientists finds the past year was tied for the second warmest since 1880. In the Southern Hemisphere, 2009 was the warmest year on record. Although 2008 was the coolest year of the decade because of a strong La Nina that cooled the tropical Pacific Ocean, 2009 saw a return to a near-record global temperatures as the La Nina diminished, according to the new analysis by NASA's Goddard Institute for Space...

U.S. space agency climatologists say 2008 was the coolest year since 2000 but the ninth warmest since continuous records were started in 1880. Scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York said the Earth's 10 warmest years on record have occurred between 1997 and 2008. GISS climatologists said the planet's average surface air temperature was 0.79 degrees Fahrenheit above the global mean for 1951 to 1980, the baseline period...

British climate scientists said on Tuesday that the coming year is likely to be one of the top-five warmest on record. Despite the continued cooling of huge areas of the Pacific Ocean "” a phenomenon known as La Nina"”the average global temperature for 2009 is expected to be more than 0.4 degrees Celsius above the long-term average. According to researchers at the Met Office, that would make it the warmest year since 2005, as there is also a growing probability of record...
