Latest IPCC Third Assessment Report Stories
Fossil coral data and temperature records derived from ice-core measurements have been used to place better constraints on future sea level rise, and to test sea level projections.
Suffering among the world's poorest people due to climate change is intensifying the need to find ways of adapting to warmer temperatures and potentially more droughts, floods and sea level rise, a University of Arizona professor wrote in a new report by the organization Oxfam International.
The US is already experiencing extreme weather, drought and heavy rainfall as a result of human-induced climate change, and the changes are likely to continue into the future.
In a new report from the National Science Foundation, researchers outline signs of global warming discovered â€œfrom the icy expanses of the polar regions of Earth to its equatorial ecosystems.â€
Though greenhouse gases are invariably at the center of discussions about global climate change, new NASA research suggests that much of the atmospheric warming observed in the Arctic since 1976 may be due to changes in tiny airborne particles called aerosols.
A poll of scientists, released on Tuesday, showed that global warming is likely to overshoot a 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit rise, seen by the European Union and many developing nations as a trigger for "dangerous" change.
More than 2,000 climate scientists gathered in Copenhagen on Tuesday to focus on global warming's rapid acceleration.
A new study by scientists updating some of the findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 2001 Third Assessment Report finds that even a lower level of increase in average global temperatures due to greenhouse gas emissions could cause significant problems in five key areas of global concern.
According to a top climate scientist, warnings about global warming have not been severe enough.
Aerosols may have a greater impact on patterns of Australian rainfall and future climate change than previously thought, according to leading atmospheric scientist, CSIROâ€™s Dr Leon Rotstayn.
