Scientists are still seeking an explanation for the Mid-Pleistocene Transition when ice ages became longer in duration and exploring what it may mean for future climate change.
A significant increasing trend of turbulence in upper atmosphere over northern Eurasia is attributed to intense anthropogenic activities.
Climate sensitivity can be estimated using multiple variables jointly in a multi-component linear regression.
Without a significant reduction in usage, committed emissions from coal and gas plants in the United States are already incompatible with the country’s pledges under the Paris climate agreement.
A los científicos les preocupa que los modelos climáticos actuales no tomen en cuenta el impacto de las condiciones atmosféricas en la capa de hielo del Groenlandia, y en consecuencia, puedan subestimar drásticamente su derretimiento.
Scientists are concerned that current climate models do not fully account for the impact of atmospheric conditions on the Greenland Ice Sheet and, consequently, may dramatically underestimate melting.
Ocean warming patterns are critical to climate science given their role in determining regional climate changes and modulating how much the globe may warm with elevated CO2 levels.
Oxygen isotope ratios in cave deposits reflect past climates, but interpreting these data is not straightforward. A new study explores what these ratios really tell us.
The Quasi-Biennial Oscillation modulates the Madden-Julian Oscillation in observations, but it does not significantly influence prediction skills in a multi-model assessment.
In the first global assessment of its kind, researchers discovered that coral recruitment is declining globally and throughout the tropics while increasing in the subtropics.
