130 years of temperature change on Earth

August 3, 2013. How did the temperature of the earth's surface? To answer this question, researchers gathered information about the temperature for 130 years from 1000 weather stations in different parts of the world and combined them with modern satellite data.

The result was an impressive video. In the mini-movie shows the temperature change on a global scale relative to the local average temperature of the mid-1900s. Red indicates warming, blue — cooling.

According to the findings of scientists over the last 130 years the earth's temperature has risen nearly 1 degree Celsius. Many of the hottest periods occurred

Winter continues to move to Europe

Winter continues to move to Europe Weather and Climate

As confirmed by the records of meteorologists, winter begins in Austria as early as this year, that is, at the end of October, just two times in the whole time of meteorological observations. First early snow has gone October 31, 1941, the second case relates to the 23-24 October 2003. Forecasters say the anomalous change in climate patterns over Europe and that winter in Central Europe will be prolonged and severe. Already fallen snow causes a lot of inconvenience residents of Austria, on the roads which have been several automobile accidents.

Global warming threatens to lovers of pasta?

April 14, 2013. Mark Hertsgaard is responsible from the pages of the magazine «Newsweek»: «Pasta consist mainly of wheat, and scientists say that with the increase in global temperature wheat crops around the world will suffer enormously." Indeed, in three crops, the backbone of the human diet — wheat, maize and rice — wheat is the most sensitive to temperature increase.

Professor at the University of North Dakota Menhi Frank believes that wheat grows best in cool seasons, and that high temperatures have on its growth and yield a negative impact. Scientific projections indicate that by 2050, global temperature increase

Summer 2013 was the shortest in the history of the Arctic

August 6, 2013. After analyzing temperature data from several observation points at the north pole of the planet, scientists have come to the conclusion that this year the Arctic July was particularly cold. Temperatures lower than normal impact on the duration of the summer in the Arctic, shortening it considerably.

In the top of the Arctic lands and waters of the warm season, when the formation of new ice stops, takes about 90 days. But in 2013, for some reason in the specified period of time managed to hold the fly less than half. Similar temperature behavior and the

Scary Summer 2010

Abnormal temperature in June 2010, compared with average temperatures in June 1971 and 2000. (NOAA)

August 10. According to experts weather center "Phobos", held July was the hottest in the history of meteorological observations of Moscow.

In its scope, the anomalies, the duration and the degree of impact the heat does not have analogs for more than a century of weather observations. For example, the average temperature was 26.1 degrees Celsius, exceeding the rate of eight to ten degrees. For a month the temperature has broken the order of ten records.

In addition, registered its absolute maximum —

The planet is cooling down rapidly!

February 18. After 2010, which became the warmest on record, came the "cold times." January 2010 on the value of the global land + ocean temperature (12,38 ° C) took only 17th place among the warmest for the observation period from 1880 — reported by climatologists NOAA (the National Administration for the atmosphere and the ocean, USA) . To the average global temperature of the 20th century was 0,38 °. This modest result can probably be explained by the cooling effect of La Niña, which is celebrated in eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. If we consider only the surface temperature continents
