River water hundreds of miles off course

River water hundreds of miles off course

Posted Fri, 06 Jan 2012 11:52:00 GMT by Adrian Bishop

Freshwater from Russian rivers that should have ended up in the Eurasian Basin, instead flowed into the Beaufort Sea, off the US/Canada border, because of changes in atmospheric pressure.

Climate change extinction risk 'greatly underestimated'

Climate change extinction risk 'greatly underestimated'

Many previous predictions of animal and plant extinction due to climate change have not taken the effects of movement and competition into account, say US ecologists.

The almost linear increase in global mean temperature since 1979 has been mapped out by Grant Foster of Tempo Analytica in the US and Stefan Rahmstorf from the Potsdam institute for Climate Impact Research, thanks to the satellite microwave-sensor imagery, available since that date.

 Arctic inter-relationships with some chilly revelations

Arctic inter-relationships with some chilly revelations

Posted Mon, 05 Dec 2011 10:35:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The US's NOAA duties include regular reports and the latest prepares uis for another of those winters that we just don't understand. For example, the strangely low [ozone] in March this year led to high ultra-violet levels in both Arctic and sub Arctic regions. Most scientists believed this due to the very cold stratosphere, resulting in slow ozone formation.

Record drought in Mexico has left 2.5m people without water and, in some cases, food. Agricultural output is down nearly 30% which, according to a Princeton study, may result in a 6% increase in emigration. But the US doesn't seem to be in a position to cope with this influx.

Scientists reconstructing the history of the Arctic ice-cap have shown that today's plummeting sea-ice levels are unprecedented in at least the last 1400 years. Using temperature proxies to track sea-ice levels over past centuries, the paper published in Nature dramatically reinforces how man-made climate change is remaking the Arctic.

Thanks to increases in computer power it is now possible to produce computer models that were previously impossible. Recent computer modelling that has looked at evidence of Hominin groups has given new insights how these groups evolved and coped with climate change during the last Ice Age.
