    Nasa says that 2015 was 0.13°C+/-0.10°C above 2014. The UK Met Office said that 2015 was 0.18°C +/- 0.10°C above 2014. NoaaNasa press conference A Little Bit On Top If the El Nino dominated the last part of the year another example of natural variability was dominating the earlier months. The reason for the first nine […]

    • Science Daily

    Coccolithophores — tiny calcifying plants that are part of the foundation of the marine food web — have been increasing in relative abundance in the North Atlantic over the last 45 years, as carbon input into ocean waters has increased. Their relative abundance has increased 10 times, or by an order of magnitude, during this […]

  • First El Nino Warming, Now Brace For La Nina Cooling

    While El Nino is characterized by rising sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, La Nina represents periods of below-average temperatures, which produces an opposite weather impact. So while El Nino saw record heat in Australia and warm climate in North America during December, La Nina is expected to bring rains Down Under and intensified […]

    Fig 1 (click on image to enlarge) the start of the current El Nino took place in May-June 2015. Since then the warm water has been travelling westward across the Pacific. However, Fig 2 shows the Upper Ocean Heat Anomaly was increasing since February and then declining since December. This decline is seen in the […]

    • Ron Clutz, Science Matters

    Arctic ice declined in the decade prior to 2007, but has not declined since. What we have seen in the last decade is a plateau in Arctic ice extent, analogous to the plateau in surface temperatures. This year end report shows there is no reason to worry about Arctic ice melting. Against the odds, 2015 […]

    Global warming is happening at around 1.2C per century, according to the 37 year old satellite dataset maintained by the University of Alabama in Huntsville Global warming is within the 2oC goal set by the United Nations (UN), according to scientists from the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). An analysis of satellite data stretching […]

  • New Research Confirms Arctic Sea Ice Standstill

    • Date: 15/12/15
    • Reporting Climate Science

    A new paper forecasts that overall winter sea ice extent will remain steady in the near future. This research underlines the significance of satellite data showing that Arctic sea ice extent now is broadly similar to that reported a decade ago. Climate scientists at the US National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) present evidence in […]
