Global Warming (Page 2)
NOAA: 2012 was one of the 10 warmest years on record globallynoaanews.noaa.gov | 12 Aug 2013
Worldwide, 2012 was among the 10 warmest years on record according to the 2012 State of the Climate report released online today by the American Meteorological Society (AMS). Conditions in the Arctic were a major story of 2012, with the region experiencing unprecedented change and breaking several records.
NASA sees newborn Tropical Depression 08W in infraredEurekAlert | 17 Jul 2013
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Infrared satellite data helps identify cloud top and sea-surface temperatures, and the AIRS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured those when it flew over Tropical Depression 08W in the western North Pacific Ocean.
Distinctive climate signals in reanalysis of global ocean heat content - Balmaseda - 2013onlinelibrary.wiley.com | 05 Jul 2013
Through a reanalysis of global ocean heat content measurements, Balmaseda et al. find the missing heat. The authors show that though the upper ocean waters, from the surface to 700 meters (2,300 feet) depth, showed no warming from 2004 to 2008, the waters from 700 to 2000 meters (2,300 to 6,500 feet) were warming at an unprecedented rate.
Revisiting the Meteor 1925-1927 hydrographic dataset - Gouretski - 2013onlinelibrary.wiley.com | 05 Jul 2013
Over past centuries, the crews of ships regularly measured some basic properties of the waters through which they sailed, such as temperature and salinity. These historical observations have proven to be important for climate modelers who are trying to validate their work. From 1925 to 1927, the German research vessel Meteor criss-crossed the Atlantic Ocean on an expedition that collected a uniquely thorough record of oceanographic properties for the full depth of the ocean basin.
Melting ice pulls Norway closer to AsiaNew Zealand Herald | 25 Jun 2013
The town of Kirkenes in northernmost Norway used to be further away from Asia than virtually any other European port, but it suddenly seems a lot closer. The reason: Global warming.
Cuba girds for climate change by reclaiming coastsNew Zealand Herald | 13 Jun 2013
After Cuban scientists studied the effects of climate change on this island's 5,630 kilometres of coastline, their discoveries were so alarming that officials didn't share the results with the public to avoid causing panic.
What to Make of a Warming PlateauNew York Times | 11 Jun 2013
The rise in the planets surface temperature has been markedly slower over the last 15 years than in the 20 years before that, a circumstance that highlights how much is still unknown about the climate system.
Smart science: Ice free past points to daunting futureNew Zealand Herald | 06 Jun 2013
Herald series: Smart science Kiwis behind the microscope Researching the history of Antarctica has given scientists like Victoria University's Dr Rob McKay an alarming window into the future. It also gives a warning about some potential future surprises a warmer climate may have in store for us.
The Impending DelugeNew York Times | 01 Jun 2013
Rising sea levels in a warming world threaten us with ever more sudden cataclysms.
Why is Reuters puzzled by global warming's acceleration?Guardian Unlimited | 24 Apr 2013
'Climate scientists struggle to explain warming slowdown,' said Reuters. But warming is speeding up, and scientists can explain it. There are periods when the ocean heats up more quickly than the surface, and other periods when the surface heats up more quickly than the oceans.
Study reveals seasonal patterns of tropical rainfall changes from global warmingEurekAlert | 16 Apr 2013
Projections of rainfall changes from global warming have been very uncertain because scientists could not determine how two different mechanisms will impact rainfall. The two mechanisms turn out to complement each other and together shape the spatial distribution of seasonal rainfall in the tropics, according to the study of a group of Chinese and Hawaii scientists that is published in the April 14, 2013, online issue of Nature Geoscience.

Antarctic key to tackling climate issuesNew Zealand Herald | 18 Jan 2013
Antarctica is "ground zero" for global warming, climate scientists say, and New Zealand will be the first to feel the effect of its melting ice. As the world warms, researchers' eyes are turning to the frozen continent, where trillions...
