  • ´Hidden´ warming points to more record temperatures

    Global warming has seemingly slowed because the top 100 metres of the Pacific Ocean has cooled − or it could be because natural climate cycles keep the atmosphere relatively cool for three decades and then warming accelerates for the next 30 years or so. But while climate scientists are still trying to understand precisely why the rate of global warming this ...

  • Heat & Repeat: Globe Breaks May Temperature Record

    Driven by exceptionally warm ocean waters, Earth smashed a record for heat in May and is likely to keep on breaking high temperature marks, experts say. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Monday said May's average temperature on Earth of 59.93 degrees Fahrenheit (15.54 degrees Celsius) beat the old record set four years ago. In April, the globe tied the 2010 record for that ...

  • Highest-ever winter water temperatures recorded

    Satellites have given oceanographers an insight into a remarkable phenomenon – a significant extension of the Leeuwin Current curling around the southern tip of Tasmania and reaching as far north as St Helens. Remote sensing specialists at CSIRO's Wealth from Oceans Flagship have been observing the current in recent days using satellite data, and ocean measurements made near Maria Island on ...

  • Sea-Bird launches SBE 39plus-IM Temperature (pressure) Recorder

    Sea-Bird Scientific is pleased to announce the launch of the new SBE 39plus-IM Temperature (optional Pressure) Recorder. The 39plus-IM replaces the 39-IM, first produced in 2005. The 39plus-IM has double the memory capacity and 1.5 times the battery endurance of the 39-IM, fast upload via an internal USB connector, and easy-to-use USB software. The SBE 39plus-IM is a high-accuracy, ...

  • September has second warmest global surface temperature on record

    The combined global land and ocean surface temperature was the second warmest September on record, according to NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. Based on records going back to 1880, the monthly National Climatic Data Center analysis is part of the suite of climate services NOAA provides. NCDC scientists also reported that the average land surface temperature for September ...

  • New Analyses Reveals Record-Shattering Global Temperatures in 2015

    Earth’s 2015 surface temperatures were the warmest since modern record keeping began in 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Globally-averaged temperatures in 2015 shattered the previous mark set in 2014 by 0.23 degrees Fahrenheit (0.13 Celsius). Only once before, in 1998, has the new record been greater than the old ...

  • Past decade warmest on record

    The past decade was the warmest on record, and 2009 was the second-warmest year since 1880, when modern temperature measurement began, according to data released by NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies. The NASA study showed that global temperatures have been rising at the relatively rapid rate of 0.36 degrees Fahrenheit per decade for the past 30 years. A separate temperature analysis by ...

  • Record heat continues in January

    Record heat experienced in 2015 continued in January 2016, fuelled by the ongoing El Niño and long-term climate change. Arctic sea ice extent was the smallest on the satellite record. The globally averaged temperature over land and ocean surfaces for January 2016 was the highest for the month since record keeping began in 1880, at 1.87°F ...

  • By the numbers: The hottest year on record

    According to new data, 2012 was a chart-topping year for the United States – but not in a good way. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) National Climate Data Center (NCDC) recently declared 2012 to be the hottest year on record for the contiguous United States. This year shattered the previous record temperature, set ...

  • 2014 Warmest Year in Modern Record

    The year 2014 ranks as Earth’s warmest since 1880, according to two separate analyses by NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists. The 10 warmest years in the instrumental record, with the exception of 1998, have now occurred since 2000. This trend continues a long-term warming of the planet, according to an analysis of surface temperature ...

  • January – July 2015 Warmest on Record

    The combined globally averaged temperature over land and ocean surfaces for January to July 2015, and for the month of July, was the highest on record for the period, driven by continuing high sea surface temperatures, according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. NOAA said the January-July 2015 global average temperature was 0.85°C (1.53°F) above the ...

  • Nuclear records paper over flaws

    The nuclear industry is celebrating breaking records that have stood for a quarter of a century − but a new update on its successes still fails to disperse the clouds over its future. Ten new nuclear reactors came on line last year worldwide, and more new reactors are being built than at any time since 1990. According to the  ...

On behalf of the organisers, Marcus Pattison expressed his delight with this success, adding: “We are extremely pleased with the number of people that took advantage of everything that WWEM 2012 had to offer – visitors came ...

  • 2008 global temperature

    In a preliminary report, released this week on behalf of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the global mean temperature for 2008 is 14.3 degrees C making it the tenth warmest year on a record that dates back to 1850. Climate scientists at the Met Office Hadley Centre and the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at UEA maintain the global climate record for the WMO. They say this figure is ...


  • 2006 Third Warmest Year on Record Across USA

    ASHEVILLE, North Carolina - This year's average annual temperature for the lower 48 states is likely to be the third warmest on record, according to scientists at the NOAA National Climatic Data Center in Asheville.

  • Ozone hole grows but is below 2006 record

    Scientists from the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) have discovered that the ozone hole over Antarctica has expanded this year against what it was in 2007, but is smaller than what it was in 2006. The ozone is a protective atmospheric layer protecting Earth from harmful ultraviolet rays. Failure to shield the planet can trigger a multitude of health ailments in people and harm biodiversity. While ...

  • Lowest Streamflow in 110 Years Recorded in North Carolina

    RALEIGH, North Carolina, August 31, 2007 (ENS) - The lowest average August streamflow in 110 years of North Carolina recordkeeping was measured last month on the Tar River at Tarboro, in the east-central part of the state.
