Not only volcanoes affect the climate, but on the contrary: as the temperature becomes more eruptions. The fact that the eruption can cause climate change, no doubt. Supervolcanoes that send to the stratosphere many tons of ash may affect the global climate. But it appears that perhaps the reverse effect: the German and American scientists have found evidence that climate can change the activity of volcanoes. This is something new! However, researchers at Harvard University in collaboration with the center GEOMAR know what they say on their side - the analysis of volcanic deposits in the last Read more [...]
Sea level has risen considerably in the last 100 years. In every single part of the world to this process affects a different set of factors, which explains why the rise of water is not uniform across the globe. Somewhere beneath the sea dry land, and somewhere, on the contrary, rises. At the University of Potsdam Climate Impact Assessment have decided to take into account every possible factor for a particular area and to create a model on which to display the levels of water on the planet in 2100.
Average increase by that date will vary from 30 to 106 cm, but in tropical seas indicators will Read more [...]

When scientists say that the average global temperature has risen by one degree, we do not attach any importance to this. But the significance of this immensely - even one degree can change the life of the Earth. The business and social circles around the world gathered in the Arctic, to learn about the consequences of climate change. Each of them will talk about his vision and propose a solution to this serious problem. Team went to western Greenland icebergs to the completed fjord Illuised length of 50 km. It is difficult to estimate the size of the icy river against the barren landscape. Read more [...]
A new study conducted by the Center for Climate Alaska shows that since the early 21 th century, the temperature in snowy Alaska actually getting colder, probably this is the inverse of total global warming.
Last reported a record drop in temperature in Alaska was - 50 degrees below zero. Local residents have already experienced the increase of cold and now scientists have confirmed that the temperature drop in northwest Alaska continues.
A new report from the research center
Fairbanks University of Alaska, shows that the 49th state of the Union was cold at 2.4 degrees Fahrenheit since 2000. Read more [...]

Gaebler Glacier - the largest glacier Belukha. It has been studied for 120 years. During this time, according to studies, he retreated more than two kilometers. Thus the speed of the retreat, depending on various factors is different.Gorno-Altai, Jan 2 - RIA Novosti. Scientists Katunsky Biosphere Reserve in the Altai Mountains in 2013, will conduct a series of studies that will help determine what volumes of water are lost each year due to warming largest glacier Belukha, from which originated the main artery of the region - Katun River, told RIA Novosti deputy director of the reserve Science Read more [...]
The department noted that "in the north-eastern states will drop from 5 to 10 cm of snow." "The disaster will take New England (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont), where it can fall up to 23 cm of snow," - said the expert Meteorological Department, ITAR-TASS reported. According to authorities, at present 64% of the 48 states (Alaska and Hawaii are not included in weather) covered with snow. "This is not the case for December, usually heavy snowfall come to us only in February. At the end of December last year, only 48% of the Read more [...]
Ultraviolet radiation has led to a sharp increase in mortality of marine animals and plants. This is the conclusion an international team, including scientists from the Oceanic Institute, University of Western Australia. The scientists used a 1784 published experiments on marine organisms, to assess the impact caused by the increase in ultraviolet radiation. The study was published July 26 in the journal Global Ecology and Biogeography. So far, the ultraviolet radiation is not considered as a possible cause of global degradation of marine ecosystems.
For marine life most affected by UV radiation, Read more [...]
In Russia in 2012. had the highest number of adverse severe weather events than in the entire history of meteorological observations. On this day the director told reporters meteorologist Russia Roman Vilfand.
He noted that the number of severe weather events this year, 20% more than in 2011. and 10% - figures 2007., previously considered the most unfavorable from the point of view of this year.
R.Vilfand stressed that there should not look for a pattern. However, he recalled that in 2012. began with a severe cold in February, which was not observed for 60 years. Then, in a number of regions Read more [...]

Antarctic ice cover is heated almost two times faster than previously thought, according to new study of temperature indicators, the magazine Nature Geoscience.There are fears that this trend could lead to a more intensive melting of ice, which in turn will increase the level of water in the ocean, according to BBC.The researchers analyzed the temperature readings from the U.S. Antarctic station Byrd. It was found that the temperature of 2.4 degrees Celsius above average over the period from 1958 to 2010.The scientists claim that this is an obvious point at the global warming. They assumed that Read more [...]
Melting glaciers in West Antarctica could lead to flooding of such countries as the Netherlands, Bangladesh and Tuvalu. This is stated in the research scientists at Ohio State University, reports Reuters. "In the western part of the continent's ice temperature increases nearly double faster than we previously thought, "- the report says climate scientists.
The average annual temperature at the research station Bird (Byrd) from the 1950's. increased by 2.4 degrees Celsius. The rate of temperature rise in the western Antarctic three times the world average.

Warming in the Arctic continues to break all records. This process explains the severity of the winter freeze in Eurasia, including Russia, says the report, prepared with the support of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the USA (NOAA). Snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere, as well as sea ice in the Arctic Ocean in June 2012, was at a record low. But the area has increased dramatically in the tundra vegetation and sea surface temperature. As a result, many of the animals that live in the Arctic, on the verge of extinction. In addition, serious grown marine plankton, which Read more [...]
Siberian abundant snowfall, the last in October, seems to have started a chain is not a quick atmospheric phenomena that in the coming weeks break the polar jet stream - the flow of air, determines the character of the northern hemisphere winter.
"As a rule, it quickly goes from east to west, keeping the cold air at high latitudes, and the air was warm - in the middle - says Judah Cohen of the company's Atmospheric and Environmental Research, which is assessing the risks associated with the weather. - The shift of the flow causes the cold air will come to the south, and the warm flow Read more [...]
