  • India’s 50-Year Dry Spell Ends As Monsoon Rains Strengthen

    • Date: 21/08/17
    • India New England News

    An MIT study published in Nature Climate Change finds that the Indian summer monsoons, which bring rainfall to the country each year between June and September, have strengthened in the last 15 years over north central India. This heightened monsoon activity has reversed a 50-year drying period during which the monsoon season brought relatively little […]

    • Ron Clutz, Science Matters

    July Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) are now available, and we can see further ocean cooling led by plummeting temps in the  Tropics and the Southern Hemisphere, continuing the downward trajectory from the previous 12 months. HadSST is generally regarded as the best of the global SST data sets, and so the temperature story here comes […]

  • Some Of The World’s Largest Non-Polar Glaciers Are Expanding, Despite Global Warming

    • Date: 13/08/17
    • Michael Bastasch, Daily Caller

    Some of the largest non-polar glaciers in the world are either stable or growing due to a “vortex” of cold air over a 1,200-mile section of the greater Himalayan mountain range in central Asia, according to a new study. Climate models haven’t been able to reproduce the phenomenon, which is keeping Karakoram mountain range glaciers […]

  • Rising Carbon Dioxide Is Making The World’s Plants More Water-Wise

    • Date: 29/07/17
    • Pep Canadell et al. The Conversation

    Land plants are absorbing 17% more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere now than 30 years ago, our research published today shows. Equally extraordinarily, our study also shows that the vegetation is hardly using any extra water to do it, suggesting that global change is causing the world’s plants to grow in a more water-efficient way. Water is […]
