Deep sea temperature reconstruction reveals 1.5 million years of global ice volume history
1.5 million years of climate history revealed after scientists solve mystery of the deep Study successfully reconstructed temperature from the deep sea to reveal how global ice volume has varied over the glacial-interglacial ...
April global temperature tied for highest since 1880, NOAA reports
April was historically hot across the globe, tying with 2010 for the highest average temperature since 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Tuesday.
Research: Sea-levels rising faster than IPCC projections
Sea-levels are rising 60 per cent faster than the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) central projections, new research suggests.
Ancient microbes discovered in bitter-cold Antarctic brine
Where there's water there's life – even in brine beneath 60 feet of Antarctic ice, in permanent darkness and subzero temperatures.
UN weather agency warns of 'El Nino' this year
The UN weather agency Tuesday warned there was a good chance of an "El Nino" climate phenomenon in the Pacific Ocean this year, bringing droughts and heavy rainfall to the rest of the world.
Data from end of the last ice age illuminate the precarious nature of global ocean chemistry
The ocean the Titanic sailed through just over 100 years ago was very different from the one we swim in today. Global warming is increasing ocean temperatures and harming marine food webs. Nitrogen run-off ...
Ocean plankton sponge up nearly twice the carbon currently assumed
(Phys.org) —Models of carbon dioxide in the world's oceans need to be revised, according to new work by UC Irvine and other scientists published online Sunday in Nature Geoscience. Trillions of plankton near t ...
Reading ancient climate from plankton shells
Climate changes from millions of years ago are recorded at daily rate in ancient sea shells, new research shows.
Study links changing winds to warming in Pacific
A new study released Monday found that warming temperatures in Pacific Ocean waters off the coast of North America over the past century closely followed natural changes in the wind, not increases in greenhouse ...
Rate of temperature change along world's coastlines has itself changed dramatically over the past three decades
Locally, changes in coastal ocean temperatures may be much more extreme than global averages imply. New research published in the June 18 edition of PLoS ONE entitled "Decadal Changes in the World's Coasta ...
Study shows above ice warming responsible for Larsen-B Ice Shelf collapse, not instability
When the ice melts, the Earth spews fire: Researchers discover a link between climate and volcanic eruptions
It has long been known that volcanic activity can cause short-term variations in climate. Now, researchers at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (Germany), together with colleagues from Harvard ...
Climate tug of war disrupting Australian atmospheric circulation patterns
(Phys.org) —The study, in the Nature journal Scientific Reports, demonstrates that mid-latitude high pressure zones (30 S-45 S) are being pushed further into the Southern Ocean by rising global temperatures associ ...
UCLA study yields more accurate data on thousands of years of climate change
Using a cutting-edge research technique, UCLA researchers have reconstructed the temperature history of a region that plays a major role in determining climate around the world.
