Climatic phenomenon El Nino may return in September

Climatic phenomenon El Nino may be formed in the Pacific Ocean in September, said the Climate Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the USA (NOAA).

El Niño (El Nino, "boy" in Spanish) is characterized by an abnormal increase in the sea surface temperature in the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. This process is the inverse of the La Nina (La Nina, "girl"), which is associated, however, with a cold snap in the same area. These states follow each other at regular intervals for a year.

Experts of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in early

Likely heat waves has increased by 50 times

According to climate scientists over the past 30 years, the frequency of heat waves around the world has increased by at least 50 times. The only reason for these changes is warming, is not supported by the results of climate models and forecasts and observations for weather and climate in real time.

In the period from 1981 to 2010, heat waves occurred on 10% of the globe. This is 50-100 times higher than in 1951-1980., When intense heat was only seen in 0.1-2%. Increased frequency and intensity of not only the temperature maxima. Increasingly began to see reports on

El Nino destroyed coral reefs in the Pacific Ocean 4-1,5 thousand years ago

Increased activity of the El Niño was the cause of the extinction of coral reefs in the Pacific Ocean about 4 — 1.5 thousand years ago — this scenario could be repeated in the near future due to climate change, reinforce this climatic phenomenon, say marine scientists in a paper published in the journal Science.

El Niño ("the boy" in Spanish) is characterized by an abnormal increase in the sea surface temperature in the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. This process is the inverse of the La Niña ("girl"), which is associated, however, with a cold snap in the

Planetary warming replaced by planetary cooling

Combined global land surface temperature and ocean in January — October 2011 was 14,0 ° C, which is 0,53 ° above the average for the XX century, and is only the 10th result on record.

The statistical measurement error is + / — 0,09 ° clarify American meteorological experts (NOAA). Separately, the land surface temperature for January — October turned out to be 0,85 ° above the average of the last century and was 6th in the ranked list. Global sea surface temperature for the year was at 0,41 ° above normal and was 12th in history. How to

Bring the temperature of the atmosphere can directly spray millions of tons of aerosol

MOSCOW, November 7 — RIA Novosti. To reduce global temperatures by 1-2 degrees, and mitigation of global warming enough to spray in the atmosphere from 1 to 5 million tons of particulate matter, said Academician Yuri Izrael, director of the Institute of Global Climate and Ecology of Roshydromet and Sciences.

Previously, scientists have claimed that the measures of the Kyoto Protocol, aimed at controlling emissions of greenhouse gases, are ineffective and can not keep the global temperature rise within 2 degrees by 2050. To cope with the ongoing warming can help geoengineering techniques that will reduce the energy of solar

Climatologists warn of data crisis

Climate scientists warn that the end of the service life of current satellites can be serious gaps in terms of climate data as the next generation something to be seen.

The problem is aggravated by the lack of adequate replacement probes Orbiting Carbon Observatory and Glory, which failed launch. "We can not manage what you can not measure" — sharpens Kevin Trenberth, a senior fellow of the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Sciences.

American "Earth Observing System", run by NASA, consists of polar-orbiting satellites, probes and low inclination orbits. They perform

Climate change brings illnesses

Climate change is in store for the human infectious and non-infectious diseases. Such a conclusion is made by scientists, physicians and specialists in military-technical cooperation during the conference, which was held on the eve of London.

Experts predict that, because of rising temperatures on the planet people face hunger and high rates of infection. In some regions of the Earth's temperature rises to 21 degrees Fahrenheit will not be able to survive.

As a recommendation for survival in the face of climate change experts offered to mankind to live a healthy lifestyle.

The main factors affecting weather and climate

Climate change — long-term (over 10 years) are intended or rhythmic changes in the climate on the Earth as a whole or in its major regions. Climate change directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere.

Adverse effects of climate change involves changes in the physical environment or biota resulting from climate change which have significant deleterious effects on the composition, resilience or productivity of natural and managed ecosystems or on the operation of socio-economic systems or on human health and welfare.

Climate change can be somewhat conventionally divided into the long-period, short-period

Forecast for the winter for the U.S., UK and Northern Europe

ExactaWeather.com, a non-profit organization that brings together the team of meteorologists from different countries, published a long-term forecast for the winter 2011-2012 for U.S., UK and Northern Europe.

Forecaster James Madden states that "in the winter in the United States may record extreme drop in temperature and extremely high levels of snow."

He bases his prediction on the major natural factors, including solar activity, and their effects on weather and climate on Earth. His forecasting techniques have attracted attention after correctly predicting seasonal climate change in the UK, as opposed to reading the British Met Office, which eventually abandoned the
