    Empirical climate variability and change studies may be particularly beneficial when they combine a search for dynamic causes with the examination of trends in meteorological variables. By using an air-mass-based methodology, arctic air masses over Latvia were identified for the 1950-2005 period...

    We review highlights of the studies of physical oceanography of the Gulf of Finland, the Baltic Sea, in 1997-2007 that serve, or can be interpreted, as evidence of shifts or changes in the local climate. Also, several findings that can be used as a starting point for studies of climatic changes...

    Sulfate aerosols (of both biogenic and anthropogenic origin) play a key role in the Earth's radiation balance both directly through scattering and absorption of solar and terrestrial radiation, and indirectly by modifying cloud microphysical properties. However, the uncertainties associated with...

    The article argues that the U.S. should be not be blamed for global warming. No matter what the U.S. do to reduce the pollutants it adds to the atmosphere, the rest of the world will more than make up for any reductions that U.S. might make. A list of the world's most populated cities include...

    The article discusses several studies to assess climate alarmists' contention that global warming is responsible for creating more frequent and greater extremes of weather. N. Pederson et al reconstructed annual precipitation and streamflow histories for northeastern Mongolia for the period of...

    The article highlights a statement from the World Meteorological Organization regarding the link between global warming and hurricanes. The group claims that such relation has yet to be demonstrated. But they note that higher sea surface temperatures fuel hurricane winds, and that climate models...

    The question is investigated how far global warming in the period 1901–2003 will affect the region of Europe. For this purpose, changes of the climate zones that exist according to Koeppen will be analysed. The trends and outliers in terms of expansion and location of individual climate...

    Anomalies of mean air temperature of 12 consecutive months were detected recently at a number of spatial scales: from local via national and continental, to hemispheric. At all these spatial scales, pre-2007 records were exceeded by considerable margins. The recent rise in the mean temperature...

  • Variability of Upper Pacific Ocean Overturning in a Coupled Climate Model. Merryfield, William J.; Boer, George J. // Journal of Climate;Mar2005, Vol. 18 Issue 5, p666 

    Variability of subtropical cell (STC) overturning in the upper Pacific Ocean is examined in a coupled climate model in light of large observed changes in STC transport. In a 1000-yr control run, modeled STC variations are smaller than observed, but correlate in a similar way with low-frequency...
