P.; Hersbach, H.; Hirahara, S.; Thépaut, J. ‐ N. // Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society;Jan2017 Part A, Vol. 143 Issue 702, p101 

    The ERA-Interim and JRA-55 reanalyses of synoptic data and several conventional analyses of monthly climatological data provide similar estimates of global-mean surface warming since 1979. They broadly agree on the character of interannual variability and the extremity of the 2015/2016 warm...

    Surface temperatures have been observed in East Africa for more than 100 yr, but heretofore have not been subject to a rigorous climate analysis. To pursue this goal monthly averages of maximum (TMax), minimum (TMin), and mean (TMean) temperatures were obtained for Kenya and Tanzania from...

    Coherent, large-scale shifts in the paths of the Gulf Stream (GS) and the Kuroshio Extension (KE) occur on interannual to decadal time scales. Attention has usually been drawn to causes for these shifts in the overlying atmosphere, with some built-in delay of up to a few years resulting from...

    The growth and decay mechanisms of subtropical dipole modes in the southern Indian and South Atlantic Oceans and their impacts on southern African rainfall are investigated using results from a coupled general circulation model originally developed for predicting tropical climate variations. The...

    Major population changes of marine mega-fauna are ongoing as global warming, and other anthropogenic drivers affect prey availability. The historical stronghold of the Eastern Rockhopper Penguin ( Eudyptes chrysocome filholi) was New Zealand's sub-Antarctic Campbell Island, but the population...

    The paper analyzes sea temperature series measured at two geographical locations along the coast of Norway. We address the question whether the series are stable over the sample period 1936-2012 and whether we can measure any signal of climate change in the regional data. We use nonstandard...

    This article discusses the use of the temperature scales Celsius and Fahrenheit. Generally speaking, the planet favors that use of Celsius. In the U.S., people use Fahrenheit for weather, Celsius for science, Fahrenheit for body temperature, and Celsius in discussions of global warming. The...
