Rainfall In South Pacific Varied Much More Dramatically Before 20th Century
2013-09-10 09:16:25

The University of Texas at Austin A new reconstruction of climate in the South Pacific during the past 446 years shows rainfall varied much more dramatically before the start of the 20th century than after. The finding, based on an analysis of a cave formation called a stalagmite from the island nation of Vanuatu, could force climate modelers to adjust their models. The models are adjusted to match the current levels of climate variability that are smaller now than they were in the recent...

Seasonal Patterns Of Tropical Rainfall Changes From Global Warming Revealed By Study
2013-04-16 10:02:13

University of Hawaii - SOEST Projections of rainfall changes from global warming have been very uncertain because scientists could not determine how two different mechanisms will impact rainfall. The two mechanisms turn out to complement each other and together shape the spatial distribution of seasonal rainfall in the tropics, according to the study of a group of Chinese and Hawaii scientists that is published in the April 14, 2013, online issue of Nature Geoscience. The one mechanism,...

By Patricia Reaney LONDON (Reuters) - An early warning system based on climate models, average rainfall and data on seasonal malaria can predict the risk of an epidemic of the killer disease five months in advance, scientists said on Wednesday. The system has been devised by researchers in the United States, Britain and Botswana. "We can give warnings of high risk of an epidemic to the health agency and officials in the country ahead of the rainy season. This is something they have...
