Warming climates intensify greenhouse gas given out by oceans
Rising global temperatures could increase the amount of carbon dioxide naturally released by the world's oceans, fuelling further climate change, a study suggests.
Researchers find proof of global cooling after Chicxulub asteroid impact
No 'permanent El Nino,' scientists say—and the tropics may get even hotter
(Phys.org) —New research by Yale University scientists challenges a long-standing paradigm for temperature variability in the Pacific Ocean, casting doubt on the existence of a past period of "permanent" ...
British scientists offer explanations on global warming pause
Mercury may have harbored an ancient magma ocean, paper reveals
By analyzing Mercury's rocky surface, scientists have been able to partially reconstruct the planet's history over billions of years. Now, drawing upon the chemical composition of rock features on the planet's ...
Tropical Indo-Pacific climate shifts to a more El Nino-like state, research finds
Climate models predict a slowdown of the Walker circulation with global warming. Atmospheric models, however, have failed to reproduce the slowdown already observed over the last 60 years, casting doubt on ...
Antarctic sea temperatures cooled in Holocene but now rising: study
Tropical Atlantic sees weaker trade winds and more rainfall: study
Earth's global temperature has been rising gradually over the last decades, but the warming has not been the same everywhere. Scientists are therefore trying to pin down how the warming has affected regional ...
Study: Small fluctuations in solar activity, large influence on the climate
(PhysOrg.com) -- Subtle connections between the 11-year solar cycle, the stratosphere, and the tropical Pacific Ocean work in sync to generate periodic weather patterns that affect much of the globe, according ...
Subterranean oceans on Saturn's moon Titan
(PhysOrg.com) -- Saturn's largest moon, Titan, may have a subterranean ocean of hydrocarbons and some topsy-turvy topography in which the summits of its mountains lie lower than its average surface elevation, ...
Global climate on verge of multi-decadal change
A new study, by scientists from the University of Southampton and National Oceanography Centre (NOC), implies that the global climate is on the verge of broad-scale change that could last for a number of ...
Climate engineering may save coral reefs, research shows
Geoengineering of the climate may be the only way to save coral reefs from mass bleaching, according to new research.
30 years of above-average temperatures means the climate has changed
If you're younger than 30, you've never experienced a month in which the average surface temperature of the Earth was below average.
The heat is on; NOAA, NASA say 2014 warmest year on record
For the third time in a decade, the globe sizzled to the hottest year on record, federal scientists announced Friday.
