To improve the accuracy of complex computer modeling, climate researchers in the Arctic are turning to natural features a little more in tune with longer time scales: glaciers and the lakes they feed.
Tiny zooplankton animals, each no bigger than a grain of rice, may be playing a huge part in regulating climate change, research involving the University of Strathclyde has found.
The indications of climate change are all around us today but now researchers have revealed for the first time when and where the first clear signs of global warming appeared in the temperature record and where those signals ...
Top environmental advocates on Wednesday urged the international community to increase and coordinate investments in research and development for renewable energy to make it cheaper than coal within 10 years.
Two different climate scenarios appear plausible for Antarctica in the 21st century, says Paul Mayewski, director of the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine.
With the plane from Cyprus to the Maldives and back. For 65 atmosphere researchers from all over Germany, this is no vacation trip, but hard work. In a research mission with the HALO research aircraft of the German Aerospace ...
Pope Francis recently made an impassioned plea for a "cultural revolution" to combat climate change, calling for collective action and "a conversation which includes everyone."
New method could improve atmospheric forecasts over months, decades, and could explain 'pause' in global warming
The atmosphere is so unstable that a butterfly flapping its wings can, famously, change the course of weather patterns. The celebrated "butterfly effect" also means that the reliability of weather forecasts drops sharply ...
A new study led by a University of York scientist addresses an important question in climate science: how accurate are climate model projections?
A slow-down in global warming is not a sign that climate change is ending, but a natural blip in an otherwise long-term upwards trend, research shows.
