New research by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory suggests global ocean warming has been underestimated by 24 to 58 percent. The research appears in the October 5 issue of the journal Nature Climate Change. Livermore, California (PRWEB) October 07, 2014 Using satellite observations and a large suite of climate models, Lawrence Livermore scientists have found that long-term ocean warming in the upper 700 meters of Southern Hemisphere oceans has likely been underestimated....

Australian scientists from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) report that in the last fifty years, salinity levels in the world´s oceans have shifted and that climate change is affecting global rainfall and evaporation cycles. According to the lead author of the study, Dr. Paul Durack, researchers looked at the correlations between salinity, rainfall, and evaporation in climate models...

Evidence that the world's water cycle has already intensified is contained in new research to be published in the American Journal of Climate. The stronger water cycle means arid regions have become drier and high rainfall regions wetter as atmospheric temperature increases. The study, co-authored by CSIRO scientists Paul Durack and Dr Susan Wijffels, shows the surface ocean beneath rainfall-dominated regions has freshened, whereas ocean regions dominated by evaporation are saltier. The paper...
