Global Warming News -- ScienceDaily
  • Amazon basin deforestation could disrupt distant rainforest by remote climate connection
    The ongoing deforestation around the fringes of the Amazon may have serious consequences for the untouched deeper parts of the rainforest. A new research study shows that it is not only the climate that is adversely affected by deforestation. In fact, the very stability of the ecosystem in the entire Amazon region is altered when deforestation takes place in the outermost regions.

  • Tipping points are real: Gradual changes in CO2 levels can induce abrupt climate changes
    During the last glacial period, within only a few decades the influence of atmospheric CO2 on the North Atlantic circulation resulted in temperature increases of up to 10 degrees Celsius in Greenland -- as indicated by new climate calculations.

  • Catalyst mimics the z-scheme of photosynthesis
    A new study demonstrates a process with great potential for developing technologies for reducing CO2 levels.

  • Warming temperatures threaten sea turtles
    Warmer temperatures associated with climate change may lead to higher numbers of female sea turtles and increased nest failure, suggests a new report.

  • Climate change label leads to climate science acceptance
    Labels matter when it comes to acceptance of climate science, suggests new research. For example, explain authors of a new report, the US public doubts the existence of 'global warming' more than it doubts 'climate change.'

  • Accelerating rate of temperature rise in the Pyrenees
    The Iberian Peninsula is undergoing climate change, with temperatures on the rise, and mountain ranges are not exempt from this trend. A team of scientists has analyzed regional climate series from the Central Pyrenees for 1910 to 2013 (the most extensive climate records to date for the area), concluding that temperatures have risen at an increasing rate since 1970, particularly in spring and summer.

  • Hot summer frequents Europe-west Asia and northeast Asia after the mid-1990s
    A recent research identifies a nonuniform warming pattern in summer after the mid-1990s over the Eurasian continent, with a predominant amplified warming over Europe-West Asia and Northeast Asia but much weaker warming over Central Asia. The study also implies that there will still be a strong warming over Europe-West Asia and Northeast Asia in the coming decade.

  • Ocean predicts future northwestern European and Arctic climate
    There is a clear potential for practical and useful predictions of northwestern European and Arctic climate based on the state of the ocean, new research indicates.

  • Wave beams mix and stir the ocean to create climate
    Waves deep within the ocean play an important role in establishing ocean circulation, arising when tidal currents oscillate over an uneven ocean bottom. The internal waves generated by this process stir and mix the ocean, bringing cold, deep water to the surface to be warmed by the sun. Investigators now explain how to tell which way internal waves will go. The proposed theory unifies several previously understood explanations of wave propagation.

  • Great opportunities for marine research with new underwater vehicle
    An autonomous underwater vehicle offers promise for advanced marine research use. This will make it possible to conduct detailed studies of the seabed at great depths and track the climate thousands of years back in time, say researchers.

  • Wet and stormy weather lashed California coast... 8,200 years ago
    An analysis of stalagmite records from White Moon Cave in the Santa Cruz Mountains shows that 8200 years ago the California coast underwent 150 years of exceptionally wet and stormy weather. This is the first high resolution record of how the Holocene cold snap affected the California climate.

  • Fighting global warming and climate change requires a broad energy portfolio
    Can the continental United States make a rapid, reliable and low-cost transition to an energy system that relies almost exclusively on wind, solar and hydroelectric power? While there is growing excitement for this vision, a new study describes a more complicated reality. Researchers argue that achieving net-zero carbon emissions requires the incorporation of a much broader suite of energy sources and approaches.

  • Volcanic eruptions triggered dawn of the dinosaurs
    Huge pulses of volcanic activity are likely to have played a key role in triggering the end Triassic mass extinction, which set the scene for the rise and age of the dinosaurs, new research has found.

  • Chemistry of sea spray particles linked for first time to formation process
    For the first time, researchers have identified what drives the observed differences in the chemical make-up of sea spray particles ejected from the ocean by breaking waves.

  • Scientists throw light on mysterious ice age temperature jumps
    Scientists believe they have discovered the reason behind mysterious changes to the climate that saw temperatures fluctuate by up to 15C within just a few decades during the ice age periods.
