Sharp fluctuations in climate warming is likely to point to the world: the ancient El Niño clue to future floods

Science (15 July 2011) — According to the scientists' predictions, as warming around the world, harsh climatic fluctuations caused by the floods in Pakistan last year and in Australia this year, probably will continue to be the case.

Researchers from the universities of Oxford and Leeds have found that El Niño (Born El Nino / La Nina — Southern Oscillation, ENSO) — the temperature variation of the surface water in the equatorial Pacific Ocean, which has a significant impact on the climate — annotated. Interpreter) That has an influence on the warmest water of the planet from the West Pacific

New report: Since 1997, there was an annual increase in global temperature

March 17, 2013. As reported by The Global Warming Policy Foundation, in a new report, written by Dr. David Whitehouse and published under the Fund policies of global warming, it is concluded that since 1997, there was no statistically significant increase in the annual global temperature.

After a review of the scientific literature, the report concludes that the stability is an empirical fact and a reality that defies the modern climate models. During the time that the global temperature of the Earth remains the same, the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased from 370 to 390 ppm.

Made in Saratov — the development of technologies of diagnosis and monitoring of continuous welded rail path.

The developed technology allows automated and non-contact, on the basis of the spectral method, the value recorded in the movement of thermal stresses in the rail lashes. The problem is that because of changes in temperature, mechanical stresses in continuously welded rail lashes path can reach critical values, or which results in the release (at higher temperatures), or to break the whip (at lower temperatures). Both leads to disaster. To prevent accidents, it is necessary diagnosis and monitoring of mechanical stress on the stretch with reference to the Ways of Communication and coordinate the release of hazardous thermal stress

Alaska swept the heat wave

June 20, 2013. After a record cold winter on the Alaska Peninsula has come to an unusually hot summer this corner of the planet. According to the U.S. National Weather Service in Anchorage air temperature rises above +27 ° C. This temperature indicator broke the old record in June 1926, and allowed citizens to find themselves in the center of the summer resort on Lake Goose.

In the suburbs of Anchorage meteorologists have recorded even higher daytime temperatures, which means the establishment of a heat wave over Alaska. Even at 130 km to the north in the small municipality of

A new class of exoplanets

A new class of exoplanets Facts

Planet, covered with a layer of water vapor and having a dense atmosphere, scientists identified in a separate class of exoplanets. Weight open in 2009, the planet GJ 1214b, which is attributed to this class, seven times the weight of the Earth's diameter is 2.7 times greater.

Artist view on dwarf stars, around which a GJ 1214b.

Discovered planet orbits the red dwarf star that is half the size of the sun. The surface temperature of the star is less than 4 thousand K, about 2000 K lower than the temperature of the sun.

02.04.2013

 

Discussing global warming, the public interest first and foremost an average air temperature near the Earth's surface, but it's just one of the cakes climate "Napoleon." Maybe you have not noticed, but the oceans are so huge that holds a lot more heat than the atmosphere. 90% of the energy that is added to the climate system the man some water is absorbed by the planet. Unfortunately, to keep track of this process difficult. On land many measures the

Unusually cold temperatures in Alaska

Unusually cold temperatures in Alaska Weather and Climate

Residents of Fairbanks, Alaska, to endure the most extreme cold in the last 10 years. January 29, 2012 International Airport was recorded temperature -51 degree Celsius. At this time, the temperature usually does not drop below 16 degrees. Record low is -60 degrees in 1933. Perhaps this record would be broken if it were not dense ice fog.

Since 1999, this is the second time the temperature reaches or exceeds -50 degrees. In January of this year for 2 weeks the temperature was between -40 degrees Celsius. Prolonged cold in Fairbanks, close

Australia collapsed to the unprecedented heat and fire: the maps had to introduce a new color

January 9, 2013. Abnormally high temperatures have forced the Australian forecasters update the scale of the climate on the map of the continent. In the weather bureau added two new colors to indicate the temperature is above 50 degrees, which already has a well-founded fear, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.

If the earlier designation of the temperature limit of 40 degrees served orange color and its shades, this week it has been made orange high. On Monday, the thermometer rose to 40.33 degrees, breaking the record of 1972, when the temperature was 40.17 degrees. Tuesday, January 8, the

50-degree heat in the U.S. could break all records

June 29, 2013. In the western United States continues to record heat that can beat the absolute maximum temperature recorded in the world since records began.

In Phoenix, the state capital of Arizona, the temperature on Friday rose to 47 degrees. In California's Death Valley, the temperature reached 51 degrees.

It is expected that the heat did not subside until the end of the weekend. In the cities open so-called "cooling centers", air-conditioned.

Authorities fear that the heat will cause delays in air communication.

Most aircraft can fly at up to 52 degrees, but the temperature is above 47 degrees
