• Scientific Controversy Over African Rainforest Crisis

    • Date: 01/03/18
    • Ars Technica

    Part of the controversy is due to the uncertainty and limited resolution of paleo-climatic dating methods, whether it’s radiocarbon dating or counting layers in a sediment core. Three thousand years ago, dense old-growth rainforests covered most of central Africa. But around 2,600 years ago, an event that ecologists call the Late Holocene Rainforest Crisis occurred, […]

    Oceanographers have put a stethoscope on the coursing circulatory system of the Atlantic Ocean, and they have found a skittish pulse that’s surprisingly strong in the waters east of Greenland—data that should improve climate models. Floats have helped map the ocean currents in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. WHOI The powerful currents in the Atlantic, […]

    An increase in corn and soybean production in the Midwest may have led to cooler, wetter summers there. Scientists agree that changes in land use such as deforestation, and not just greenhouse gas emissions, can play a significant role altering the world’s climate systems. Now, a new study by researchers at MIT and Dartmouth College […]

    The vast majority of land sites in Africa show characteristic warming  during the Medieval Climate Anomaly, in line with similar warming in Europe and North America. Global climate is currently undergoing major change. Experts agree that this change is driven by a combination of man-made and natural factors. However, full quantification of the anthropogenic and […]
