  • Trapped atmospheric waves triggered more weather extremes

    Weather extremes in the summer - such as the record heat wave in the United States that hit corn farmers and worsened wildfires in 2012 - have reached an exceptional number in the last ten years. Man-made global warming can explain a gradual increase in periods of severe heat, but the observed change in the magnitude and duration of some events is not so easily explained. It has been linked to a ...

  • New Science and Technology Director

    Professor Angela Hatton has today begun her new role as Director of Science & Technology at the National Oceanography Centre.On her appointment, Professor Angela Hatton said, “These are interesting and exciting times for the NOC; addressing globally significant challenges, driving forward technology development and conducting science that has a positive impact on society and the ...

  • Outpacing climate change with atmospheric research collaboration

    Tiny particles in air called aerosols create smog, seed clouds, and control how much of the sun's heat makes it through the atmosphere. And yet these particles are the least understood aspect of climate research. Now, two research institutions are working together to tackle the role of aerosols in climate change -- specifically how aerosols from pollution, oceans and wildfires contribute to ...

  • Climate change and the integrity of science

    We are deeply disturbed by the recent escalation of political assaults on scientists in general and on climate scientists in particular. All citizens should understand some basic scientific facts. There is always some uncertainty associated with scientific conclusions; science never absolutely proves anything. When someone says that society should wait until scientists are absolutely certain ...

  • A new leaf turns in carbon science

    A new insight into global photosynthesis, the chemical process governing how ocean and land plants absorb and release carbon dioxide, has been revealed in research that will assist scientists to more accurately assess future climate change. In a paper published today in Nature, a team of US, Dutch and Australian scientists have estimated that the global rate of photosynthesis, the ...
