    May Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) are now available, and we can see ocean cooling resuming after a short pause from the downward trajectory during the previous 12 months. HadSST is generally regarded as the best of the global SST data sets, and so the temperature story here comes from that source, the latest version being […]

    Scientists have discovered a population of “super corals” that appear to have become resistant to extreme environmental conditions — being able to survive and thrive in hot, acidic and low-oxygen waters. And they now plan to search for more climate-adaptable coral populations within the Great Barrier Reef. The “super corals” discovered within a New Caledonian […]

    The reduction in global temperature after the recent El Nino continues though not as swiftly as some predicted. The next few months will be interesting to see if it returns to levels seen before the recent El Nino took place when global annual average temperatures changed little for at least 15 years. Whilst some are […]

    Scientists have quantified for the first time how vegetation across the African continent has changed in the past 20 years. Thirty six per cent of the continent has become greener, while 11 per cent is becoming less green. In Africa, a fight is happening. On one side natural forces are making the continent greener, and on the […]

  • Colder Than Normal Eastern Pacific Ocean Temps Lower El Niño Bias

    • Date: 20/05/17
    • North Queensland Register

    A number of  forecast models have reduced their El Niño bias for the spring. This is primarily due to colder than normal band of subsurface water in the eastern Pacific Ocean remaining a similar size or even growing in recent months, contrary to the normal El Niño trend. source: Australian Bureau of Meteorology El Niño refers […]
