Latest Pacific decadal oscillation Stories
DEERFIELD, Ill., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- While many climate experts and environmentalists explore the negative effects of global warming, a new study reveals a positive outcome of the warming of the planet: the potential elimination of the plague.
Climatologists have long known that human-produced greenhouse gases have been the dominant drivers of Earth's observed warming since the start of the Industrial Revolution.
Chronology of growth rings from tropical Australia compiled for the first time.
Global warming is 37 percent of the cause of massive droughts in Australia and extensive periods of dryness in the US, according to one Australian scientist.
The latest image of sea-surface height measurements from the U.S./French Jason-1 oceanography satellite shows the Pacific Ocean remains locked in a strong, cool phase of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, a large, long-lived pattern of climate variability in the Pacific associated with a general cooling of Pacific waters.
An oceanographer with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said Tuesday a change in atmospheric conditions has generated a feast for West Coast salmon and other marine life off the U.S. west coast.
Scientists announced on Wednesday that previously unexplainable outbreaks of plague in the U.S. may be linked to climate change in the Pacific Ocean.
Boosted by the influence of a larger climate event in the Pacific, one of the strongest La NiÃ±as in many years is slowly weakening but continues to blanket the Pacific Ocean near the equator, as shown by new sea-level height data collected by the U.S.-French Jason oceanographic satellite.
By Lehodey, P; Alheit, J; Barange, M; Baumgartner, T; Et al ABSTRACT Fish population variability and fisheries activities are closely linked to weather and climate dynamics.
Observations and computer models have long proven that the Arctic plays an important role in maintaining a stable climate on Earth. However, significant changes in the Arctic environment, especially those over the past decade, could lead to dramatic swings in weather and climate patterns across the rest of the globe.
