A combination of warmer-than-average temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean, weakened trade winds and models showing that further warming is likely over coming months has nudged Australia's BoM to upgrade its ENSO Tracker...[more]

Under Ice Turbulence Affects Arctic Ocean


Submarine data has been used to investigate turbulence beneath Arctic ice for a new study[more]

Sun Has More Impact On Climate In Cool Periods


New research shows that during the last 4,000 years, there appears to have been a close correlation between solar activity and the sea surface temperature in summer in the North Atlantic but this correlation is not seen in the...[more]

New Mann Paper Predicts End Of "False" Pause


The so called global warming pause is "false" and due to natural variability in the climate linked to oscillations in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and it will come to an end soon predicts a new paper co-authored by Michael Mann[more]

Direct Observation Of CO2's Impact On Warming Reported


First direct observation of carbon dioxide’s increasing greenhouse effect at the Earth’s surface reported by Berkeley Lab researchers who link rising CO2 levels to an upward trend in radiative forcing at two locations.[more]

Study Casts Light On Ice Age Climate Change In America

Sea Level Rise Running AMOC


Analysis of long-term tide gauge records identified an extreme sea-level rise event during 2009–10 when the coastal sea level north of New York City jumped by 128 mm. This was linked to changes in the Atlantic Meridional...[more]

Pause Unlikely To Last - But Don't Be Surprised If It Does


New research from scientists at the UK Met Office and the University of Exeter suggests that the probability of the so called global warming pause continuing for another five years is up to 25 per cent[more]

Study: How Greenland Responded To Holocene Warmth


Lake records show that local atmospheric temperatures in Greenland were 2–4C warmer than now some 8,000 years ago when Greenland's ice sheet extent was at a minimum[more]
