NOAA: World Has Just Had Warmest 12 Months... Again


The latest 12-month period to end-April 2015 ties with the record set last month for the 12 months to end-March 2015 as the warmest 12-month period among all months in the 136-years of data maintained by NOAA[more]

Study: Severe Ozone Depletion Avoided


Researchers use a state-of-the-art 3D computer model of atmospheric chemistry to investigate what would have happened to the ozone layer if the Montreal Protocol had not been implemented[more]

BoM: El Nino Strengthening


Sea surface temperatures in the tropical Pacific have exceeded +1C above seasonal norms for the last month, according to Australia's weather service. This is the first time this has occurred since the record-breaking 1997–98 El...[more]

Sudden Onset Of Ice Loss In Antarctica Detected


Around 2009, multiple glaciers along a vast coastal expanse of the Southern Antarctic Peninsular suddenly started to shed ice into the ocean at a nearly constant rate of 60 cubic km each year, say researchers [more]

Study: Limiting Warming To 1.5C "Feasible"


What would it take to limit climate change to 1.5°C? Limiting temperature rise by 2100 to less than 1.5°C is feasible, at least from a purely technological standpoint, according to a new study[more]

NASA Researcher Suggests US Hurricane Drought Is Luck


The US has experienced no major hurricane landfall since Hurricane Wilma in 2005, a drought that currently stands at 9 years. A new study estimates the mean time to wait for a 9 year drought is 177 years and...[more]

New Evidence Links Arctic Warming With Severe Weather


Research has linked Arctic warming with severe weather in countries including the US and UK[more]

Global Warming Trades Cyclone Frequency For Intensity


A new way of analysing global cyclone data suggests that warming oceans lead to more intense cyclones but also result in fewer cyclones and that there is a trade-off between cyclone intensity and frequency[more]

"Missing Heat" Is Lurking In The Indian Ocean Says Study


Researchers may have tracked down the missing heat predicted to have been accumulating in the oceans during the so called pause in global warming. Excess heat that entered the Pacific Ocean has flowed into the tropical Indian...[more]

Research On Atmospheric Layer Links Aids Forecasts


Study highlights ways to boost weather and climate predictions [more]
