    • Polar Portal Season Report 2018

    In 2018, Greenland’s total  surface mass budget (SMB) is almost 150bn tonnes above the average for 1981-2010, ranking as sixth highest on record. The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) also performs daily simulations of how much ice or water the Ice Sheet loses or accumulates. Based on these simulations, an overall assessment of how the surface […]

  • How Good Are The UK’s Predictions For Sea Level Rise?

    • Date: 05/12/18
    • Andrew Montford, GWPF

    An extrapolated forecast based on the actual trend to date might be more useful to planners than the Met Office’s predictions. Over the last few days, I have been reviewing the official forecasts of climate change for the UK, going right back to the first iteration in 1991. It’s fair to say that so far […]

    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. In science communication however, a simple graph can be worth far more than pictures particularly when the main point is that the last four years have been the hottest on record. In a press release the World Meteorological Organisation said, ‘The long-term warming trend […]

  • How The BBC Quietly Obliterates And Rewrites Science News

    • Date: 22/11/18
    • Dr David Whitehouse, GWPF Science Editor

    Rewriting science history in the BBC News archive and erasing original content is a dangerous thing to do. One of the most basic things about journalism, especially BBC journalism, is that anyone should be able to find out what the corporation reported on a particular day about a particular story. Imagine wanting to find out […]

  • NASA Detects A Sunspot From The Next Solar Cycle

    • Date: 20/11/18
    • Spaceweather.com

    Over the weekend, a small sunspot materialized in the sun’s northern hemisphere, then, hours later, vanished again. Such an occurrence is hardly unusual during solar minimum when sunspots are naturally small and short-lived. However, this ephemeral spot was noteworthy because its magnetic field was reversed–marking it as a member of the next solar cycle. Shown […]

  • Alaska’s Polar Bear Population Is Booming

    • Date: 18/11/18
    • Susan Crockford, Polar Bear Science

    The Chukchi Sea finally has a polar bear population estimate! According to survey results from 2016 only recently made public, about 2937 bears (1522-5944) currently inhabit the region, making this the largest subpopulation in the Arctic. This is exciting news — and a huge accomplishment — but the US Fish and Wildlife Service responsible for the work […]

  • Earth’s Upper Atmosphere Cooling Dramatically, Cosmic Rays Continue To Increase As Deep Solar Minimum Approaches

    • Date: 05/11/18
    • Meteorologist Paul Dorian, Perspecta, Inc.

    New data from NASA’s SABER instrument on board NASA’s TIMED satellite confirms that our atmosphere is losing heat energy near the edge of space as we approach solar minimum. In fact, if current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold. Daily observations of the number of sunspots since 1 January […]
