Greenhouse gases versus solar heating: New research shows complexity of global warming
Global warming from greenhouse gases affects rainfall patterns in the world differently than that from solar heating, according to a study by an international team of scientists in the January 31 issue of ...
Researchers find connection with global warming and increased monsoonal precipitation
(Phys.org) —New research by scientists at the University of New Mexico suggests that future warming may lead to above average monsoonal moisture. While that sounds like a ray of sunshine especially to farmers in arid regions, ...
Catastrophic collapse of ice lake created Aram Chaos on Mars
Aram Chaos, the lumpy, bumpy floor of an ancient impact crater on Mars, formed as a result of catastrophic melting and outflow of a buried ice lake. A new study combines observations from satellite photos ...
Researchers map European climate change (Update)
The majority of Europe will experience higher warming than the global average if surface temperatures rise to 2 °C above pre-industrial levels, according to a new study published today.
Hurricanes could increase over western Europe as climate warms
Damaging hurricanes are familiar along the North American east coast but are relatively rare in western Europe. That could change as Earth's climate warms over the next century, according to a new study. Western European ...
NASA finds 2012 sustained long-term climate warming trend
NASA scientists say 2012 was the ninth warmest of any year since 1880, continuing a long-term trend of rising global temperatures. With the exception of 1998, the nine warmest years in the 132-year record ...
Researchers contend increase in Antarctic sea ice due to summer melt
Warming Antarctic seas likely to impact on krill habitats
Antarctic krill are usually less than 6 cm in length but their size belies the major role they play in sustaining much of the life in the Southern Ocean. They are the primary food source for many species of ...
Global warming less extreme than feared?
Policymakers are attempting to contain global warming at less than 2°C. New estimates from a Norwegian project on climate calculations indicate this target may be more attainable than many experts have feared.
Study highlights growing threat of intense tropical cyclones hitting East Asia
The intensity of tropical cyclones hitting East Asia has significantly increased over the past 30 years, according to a new study published today.
New method for measuring temperature of nanoscale objects discovered
Temperature measurements in our daily life are typically performed by bringing a thermometer in contact with the object to be measured. However, measuring the temperature of nanoscale objects is a much more ...
Warmer climate boosts northern crops but the bad soon outweighs the good
Climate change is creating warmer growing conditions in parts of the Earth's northern regions, a new study has found, but experts warn that drought and heat wil soon cancel out the agricultural benefits.
Bitsy beetle warms Canada, study says
An army of rice-grain-sized beetles, attracted by warming weather, has moved into Canada's western forests, where its tree massacre is causing the mercury to rise yet further, a study said Sunday.
Hypergiant star studied
A European research team has published the results of a 30-year study of an extraordinary hypergiant star. They have found that the surface temperature of the super-luminous star HR 8752 increased by about ...
