study on arctic warmth and winter weather across the u.s. draws heated debate


those severe winter storms that have been plaguing the east coast might be linked to a rapidly warming arctic, according to a new study on arctic temperatures and extreme weather in a dozen u.s. cities.while the findings published in the journal nature communications build on earlier studies that have looked into this connection, they drew criticism from other researchers who questioned some aspects of the work.advertisement"the basic findings are sound, but i would take issue with some of the interpretation in the study," michael mann, a climate scientist at pennsylvania state university who was not involved in the study, said in an email.the arctic has been warming fast in recent decades, causing sea ice to shrink to record lows. this temperature rise comes as global warming, fueled by t






heat from the atlantic ocean is melting arctic sea ice further eastwards than ev


the seasonal sea-ice retreat across the arctic ocean is perhaps one of the most conspicuous indicators of climate change. in september 2012, a new record was set for the time that we have been tracking sea ice with satellites: the minimum sea ice extent was some 50% below the climatic average for that month. four years on, and the september 2016 record tied with 2007 for the second lowest sea ice extent since measurements began in 1978. the seasonal retreat of sea ice is largely because the atmosphere in the arctic is heated under 24 hours of daylight in the summer, and this makes the ice melt. in the cold of the perpetual darkness of winter, the sea ice extent returns to its winter norm: the only heat available to slow sea ice growth is from winds and ocean currents moving warm air and wa






second coldest slap of winter? thaw 1 week away

twin cities temperatures will flirt with 40 degrees by friday

winter warmth record for denmark | news


on wednesday, denmark recorded its warmest ever january day.it may not seem an especially high temperature at 12.7 degrees celsius in the town of soenderborg, but it hasn’t been seen before anywhere in denmark since records began, (along with the meteorological service), in 1874.denmark is open to weather from the atlantic, only a little modified in its journey across the uk and the north sea. atlantic weather is always relatively mild in the winter, which makes this record warmth all the more surprising.denmark's weather in winter is either siberian cold or atlantic mild and in the latter case, sea temperatures tend to determine the temperature. in 2005, 12.4c was recorded at the same site in soenderborg, so this year's figure is a marginal rise, most likely because of a warmer atlantic,

arctic ice loss driven by natural swings, not just mankind: study


natural swings in the arctic climate have caused up to half the precipitous losses of sea ice around the north pole in recent decades, with the rest driven by man-made global warming, scientists said on monday.the study indicates that an ice-free arctic ocean, often feared to be just years away, in one of the starkest signs of man-made global warming, could be delayed if nature swings back to a cooler mode.natural variations in the arctic climate “may be responsible for about 30–50 percent of the overall decline in september sea ice since 1979,” the u.s.-based team of scientists wrote in the journal nature climate change.sea ice has shrunk steadily and hit a record low in september 2012 — late summer in the arctic — in satellite records dating back to 1979.the ice is now around the smalles






2017 ranked 6th warmest in illinois

the arctic seed bank that was going to save us all is flooding / boing boing

the guilt of record warmth in chicago — climate change?


while enjoying tuesday's warm weather in chicago, yashira massey couldn't help but feel a twinge of guilt.in a plaza near nbc tower, the 33-year-old from the austin neighborhood ate a burrito bowl between doctors' appointments, watching as her 20-month-old daughter, sophiya, ran about without a coat. massey said she's fearful of what the record-breaking warmth means for the future, even if it makes for a more pleasant february day."it's scary, that's my first thing," massey said. "because in all my life i've never seen a february this warm. it's like, what's going on that we're not hearing about? the fear is we're just going to get hit with some major snowstorms next. — that this is just the calm before the storm — or that we're going to have snow in june."whether the record-breaking warmt

arctic warming causes concern among scientists | news


most of the coverage of europe's weather over the last week or so has been, rightly, focused on the so-called, 'beast from the east' and the sudden stratospheric warming' (ssw).both ssw and the intense anticyclone that caused frigid siberian air to sweep across europe are entirely natural events, albeit quite infrequent. the same cannot be said for some of the weather anomalies being reported in the arctic region.scientists understanding of the polar regions, in general, is limited. an accurate database of instrument readings extends back just a few decades, and reliable satellite data from the region only became available in the 1970s.nevertheless, many climate scientists are concerned about the extent of the recent warming in the region, which appears to be accelerating at a dramatic rat






here's how hundreds of tons of plastic trash end up in arctic ocean


plastic trash is now so ubiquitous that researchers have found hundreds of tons of it floating in the arctic ocean.it may not sound like much, but it’s a surprising amount given the area’s sparse population. the researchers who measured the plastic debris in the waters near the north pole described it as “widespread and abundant,” according to a study last month in the journal in science advances.“we already knew that the marine plastic pollution was high at tropical and temperate latitudes,” said study leader andrés cózar, an ecologist at the university of cadiz in spain. “now, we also know that the plastic waste is extending up to the poles.”cózar and his colleagues estimated that 63% of the ice-free arctic ocean is “slightly polluted” with various types of plastic debris, including fish
