The global warming has never stopped in the past hundred years, with maximum rate of change after Second World War II and almost constant rate during the latest three decades. The hiatus is merely a decadal balance between global warming and the cooling resulting from anomalous sea surface temperature in equatorial Pacific.
Researchers led by Arizona State University have completed some of the most sophisticated modeling of the effects of climate change and urban centers in the US, and are finding that some of today's proposed solutions will provide only a fraction of relief from the projected heat.
Tropical Cyclone Alcide continued to linger just northeast of the Island nation of Madagascar in the Southern Indian Ocean when NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead and captured an image of the storm.
A study by scientist Dirk Scherler of the German Research Centre for Geosciences GFZ and two colleagues from Switzerland shows a possibility to detect the extent of debris on mountain glaciers globally and automatically via satellite monitoring. The scientists used the cloud computing platform Google Earth Engine for their study.
Scientists from the CNR (National Research Council) and Ca' Foscari University of Venice have carried out the first scientific research on the ripple effects linking atmospheric emissions, sea acidification, and coastal erosion. The Mediterranean case study: a possible 31 percent decrease in sediment by 2100. The results have been published inClimatic Change
Holocene temperature in the Iberian Peninsula reconstructed with chironomid subfossils
The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite passed over the Southern Indian Ocean and analyzed the rainfall occurring in pre-season Tropical Cyclone Alcide.
Previous research conducted on bee behavior notes that bees commonly fly slower at dusk and return to their colonies at night. In this study, researchers found that while bees completely stopped buzzing during the totality of a solar eclipse, they continued to fly during the periods of reduced light that occur in the phases of a partial eclipse.
NASA's Terra satellite provided a visible image of a more organized Tropical Cyclone Alcide in the Southern Indian Ocean after it reached hurricane-force.
A new study reveals process of an extreme spring cold spell, which happens over North China. Continuous negative temperature anomalies can have disastrous effects on the wheat yield, inducing yield losses of up to 20% or more.
