  • Climatic identity assessment of the climate change

    In the last few decades, due to the potentially serious impacts upon the atmosphere, earth, and ocean the climate change issue become internationally disputable subject among many scientists including various specialists such as climatologists, atmospheric researchers, oceanographers, hydro–meteorologists, agriculturalists, in particular, local administrators in addition to politicians, as ...

  • A Climate Change Reality Check

    The world spent $50 billion dollars per year on weather-related disasters in the 1980s, according to the World Bank. Today, we spend roughly ...

  • Climate change case study

    European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) commissioned a team of scientists to assess the change in vulnerability of EU Member States to infectious disease over the next fifty years as a result of projected changes in climate. Vose lead the modelling part of the project, developing a range of indices that allowed ‘heat maps’ to be produced showing regions down to ...

  • Betting Wrong on Climate Change

    Whether companies agree with the science of Global Climate Change or not, the business implications are too great are too great to be ignored. Climate Change will change how business is conducted and should be managed like any other strategic asset or liability on the corporation’s balance sheet. Trends Executives view Climate Change as having as much of an impact ...

  • Arctic Polar Research - A Global Responsibility

    Due to climate change and geopolitical trends, the Polar Regions (particularly the Arctic) are increasingly becoming the focus of scientific, political, and economic interests. Much of the global climate is driven by forces that originate in the Arctic. The Arctic sea ice is receding faster than climate models have predicted, and the movement of freshwater into and around the Arctic plays an ...

  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • On the right track

    High-speed train manufacturer, CAF, rely on world-class beamforming technology to reduce the noise generated by their trains – helping to make high-speed trains a more viable option for travellers and operators alike. Because of its relatively low levels of CO2 emissions, train travel is considered one of the ...

  • Climate change and wheat production in Argentina

    The aim of this work is to assess the impact of past and future climate changes on wheat productivity in the Pampas region of Argentina. The study was based on long-term climatic and crop productivity data, regional climatic scenarios and a crop simulation model. Our results demonstrate that the potential wheat yield has been declining at increasing rates since 1930 mainly due to minimum ...

  • Climate change a threat to sewage systems

    Many cities could face problems with their sewage in the future. A research study for Stockholm shows that a change in precipitation, combined with a population increase, could bring disruptions as early as the middle of the century. Climate change could put more pressure on the sewage systems in the future. Climate scenarios indicate critical factors such as increased volumes of rain and rising ...

  • Digging for data on Africa’s climate future

    The cardboard box is covered with a layer of dust so thick it must have been tucked away in this Kenyan basement for decades. The researcher wipes off the dust and rummages through the papers stored inside by someone long since retired. Sheet after sheet of neatly typed paper emerges, the faded rows of numbers detailing rainfall, temperature and wind speed. In a way, the researcher is hunting for ...

  • Endogenous Land use and the Ricardian Valuation of Climate Change

    The Ricardian technique uses cross-sectional variation in the capitalized value of climate in land to infer the agricultural costs or benefits of dynamic climate change. While a practical approach for predicting the consequences of global warming with readily available data, it may yield biased results when land-use decisions depend on the climate attributes being valued and when land has ...

  • Comparison of legislative climate change targets in the 110th congress

    The World Resources Institute’s analysis of emissions targets and cumulative emissions budgets attempts to objectively, fairly and accurately compare GHG reductions from explicit carbon caps and complementary policies contained in climate proposals submitted in the 110th Congress. Emissions from capped sectors are calculated based on the text of the respective legislation. For sectors that are ...

  • Freeze thaw cycles in Toronto, Canada in a changing climate

    Freeze thaw cycles are examined in Toronto Canada. Using data from 1960 to 1989 for three Toronto area weather stations, trends in freeze thaw activity, the relationship to mean monthly temperature and projections of freeze thaw activity are examined. For downtown Toronto the annual frequency of freeze thaw cycles is decreasing significantly, most notably in the shoulder months of October and ...

  • Trends of climate with rapid change in Sinai, Egypt

    This study presents evidence for rapid climate change in the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt. Analyses of data for temperature and rainfall from 1970 to 2014 show a clear tendency towards decreasing rainfall and increasing average temperatures. This trend caused severe droughts for many years that were suddenly interrupted by high and unpredictable rainfall that fluctuated heavily in space and time. If ...

  • Climate Change - Right response for the wrong reasons?

    Simple questions don’t always have simple answers. Why is our climate warming? Clearly the most popular answer lies in the theory that a rise in greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide is escalating the atmosphere’s insulating effect. We have Al Gore’s graph of CO2 increases to prove it, with recent years’ data climbing ladder high ...

  • Systematic monthly climate changes in the northern and southern hemispheres

    A new comprehensive analysis of the monthly surface temperatures published data in the northern and southern hemispheres is presented. Linear regressions between surface temperatures and CO2 concentrations at consecutive latitude geographical regions indicated that there is a systematic opposite global warming effect between mirror regions on the northern and southern ...

  • Nigeria `must close climate change communication gap`

    Nigeria must close a "communication gap" to ensure that vital information on climate change-related events reaches all those who could use it to help minimise their impact, the head of the country's meteorological body has warned. Speaking at the yearly meeting of the African Science Academies, held ...

  • Reservoir management under predictable climate variability and change

    The potential effects of climate change on future water budget components and streamflow in the Mississippi River (Ontario) are assessed. Analyses of historic hydrometric data indicate an increasing trend in winter streamflows due to the rising winter air temperatures across the region over the latter half of the 20th century. These temperatures have resulted in reduced snow accumulation and ...
