West Antarctic ice sheet among the fastest-warming regions on Earth

December 23rd, 2012 by Ohio State University

Research published in the paper ‘Central West Antarctica among the most rapidly warming regions on Earth‘ in Nature Geoscience states that the western part of the ice sheet is experiencing nearly twice as much warming as previously thought. This discovery raises concern about the future contribution of melt water from Antarctica to sea level rise. […]

More accurate climate modelling predicts greater global warming

November 10th, 2012 by The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research

According to analysis by scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), climate model projections showing a greater rise in global temperature are likely to prove more accurate than those showing a lesser rise. The report “A Less Cloudy Future: The Role of Subtropical Subsidence in Climate Sensitivity” published in Science, could provide a […]
