Latest Temperature record Stories
Using sediments from a remote lake, researchers from Brown University have assembled a 60,000-year record of rainfall in central Indonesia. The analysis reveals important new details about the climate history of a region that wields a substantial influence on the global climate as a whole.
Polarstern, a research icebreaker, returned from the South Pacific in 2010 with a scientific treasure. The treasure, described in a recent issue of Science, consisted of ocean sediments from a previously almost unexplored part of the South Polar Sea.
NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York found that 2013 tied 2009 and 2006 for the seventh warmest year since 1880.
Scientists at NASA report that 2012 was the ninth warmest year on record since 1880. This continues a long-term global trend of rising temperatures.
A rapid response between global temperatures and ice volume/sea-level that could lead to sea-levels rising by over 3 feet have been revealed by a new study from the University of Southampton.
A new study from the University of Cambridge Department of Earth Sciences has successfully reconstructed temperature from the deep sea to reveal how global ice volume has varied over the glacial-interglacial cycles of the past 1.5 million years.
The Eemian interglacial period that began some 125,000 years ago is often used as a model for contemporary climate change.
