    • Reporting Climate Science

    Natural long term cycles in the ocean and not climate change are behind the well publicised slow down in the Gulf Stream that has been observed in recent years, according to new research from Met Office scientists. The observed decrease in the so called Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation – of which the Gulf Stream is […]

  • El Niño Ends As Tropical Pacific Ocean Returns To Neutral

    • Date: 24/05/16
    • Australian Bureau of Meteorology

    The tropical Pacific Ocean has returned to a neutral El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) state. Sea surface temperatures across the tropical Pacific have cooled to neutral levels over the past fortnight, supported by much cooler-than-average waters beneath the surface. In the atmosphere, indicators such as the trade winds, cloudiness near the Date Line, and the Southern […]

    2016 is still trailing record low 2011 for this time of year, but the difference has become so small that they are practically on a par. Another month has passed and so here is the updated Arctic sea ice volume graph as calculated by the Pan-Arctic Ice Ocean Modeling and Assimilation System (PIOMAS) at the Polar […]

    Why has the sea ice cover surrounding Antarctica been increasing slightly, in sharp contrast to the drastic loss of sea ice occurring in the Arctic Ocean? A new NASA-led study finds the geology of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean are responsible. Location of the southern Antarctic Circumpolar Current front (white contour), with -1 degree Celsius […]

    The global temperature is up again. It’s a “shocker,” say some and to others indicates a “kind of climate emergency.” According to some figures every one of the past eleven months has been a record for that month. It is, of course, the result of an intense El Niño which is causing the global temperature […]

  • 2016 El Nino Not Linked To Global Warming, Says Former IPCC Vice-Chairman

    • Date: 09/05/16
    • Voon Miaw Ping, Malaysian National News Agency

    The current El Nino phenomenon that has brought prolonged drought and sweltering heat to Malaysia is the strongest of the 20 over the last 60 years, but there is no concrete evidence to link its heat intensity to global warming, says former IPCC vice-chairman. Climatologist and oceanographer Prof Dr Fredolin Tangang of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia […]

  • Uncertain Future For Arctic Ice

    • Date: 05/05/16
    • Dr David Whitehouse

    The decline of arctic ice cover has become an icon of man-made global warming. It’s one of those factors like, temperature rise, sea level rise and ocean acidification that, according to some, when taken with the others, point to a compelling picture of what is happening to our planet. Despite its iconic status no one […]

  • Atlantic Ocean Showing Signs Of A Significant Shift To Cold Phase

    • Date: 29/04/16
    • Paul Dorian, Vencore, Inc.

    The Atlantic Ocean experienced a cold phase from the early 1960’s to the mid 1990’s at which time it flipped to a warm phase and that has continued for the most part ever since. The current warm phase, however, is now showing signs of a possible long-term shift back to colder-than-normal sea surface temperatures. Overview […]
