Fresh Analysis of the Pace of Warming and Sea-Level Rise

Posted By Mahboubeh in Hydrology

Here are two useful articles assessing the latest thinking on the pace at which Greenland ice loss could raise sea levels and the implications of the recent plateau in global temperatures (one acknowledged by climate scientists including Susan Solomon and James Hansen):

Greenlands Future Ice Melt May Slow

Posted By Mahboubeh in Hydrology

Greenland's galloping glaciers will likely slow their rapid retreat in the coming century, scientists project based on a new computer modeling study.

In the study, published today (May 8) in the journal Nature, researchers resolve one of the biggest uncertainties about Greenland's future contributions to sea-level rise: the behavior of its outlet glaciers. These massive ice rivers drain to the http://www.livescience.com -

Miami Sea Levels Will Rise Flooding Streets

Posted By Mahboubeh in Hydrology

Three major sewage plants in South Florida could be reduced to shrinking islands in less than 50 years due to climate change, according to a group of climate scientists.

The scientists believe rising sea level will threaten some of the region's most vital facilities. It will also flood land, streets and neighborhoods nearby, The Miami Herald reported Sunday.

The scenario was drawn up by fiv http://www.huffingtonpost.com -

Droughts and floods 'will be common events in Britain'

Posted By Mahboubeh in Planning and Management

Britain faces increasingly extreme weather conditions and urgently needs to improve its anti-flood defences and preparations for severe drought, says the Environment Agency.

Its stark conclusion follows detailed analysis of weather patterns, river levels and flooding events in 2012, which revealed that some areas suffered record levels of drought before facing some of the worst flooding ever. http://www.metrosense.org -

Tilting at Windmills: Arguments for and Against Climate Change

Posted By Mahboubeh in Hydrology

According to a survey published last year by the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication, 66 percent of Americans believe that global warming is happening, with 42 percent concerned that it will harm people in the United States between now and the next 10 years. Forty-five percent of Americans believe the country will be http://www.foxnews.com -

Scientists Advocate a Simple, Affordable and Accurate Technology to Identify Threats from Sea-Level Rise

Posted By Mahboubeh in Hydrology

A team of researchers led by Associate Professor Edward L. Webb of the National University of Singapore (NUS) is calling for the global adoption of a method to identify areas that are vulnerable to sea-level rise. The method, which utilises a simple, low-cost tool, is financially and technically accessible to every country with coastal wet­lands. The team seeks to establish a network to coordinat http://www.sciencedaily.com -

VANISHING ICE | UN sounds alarm over record Arctic ice melt

Posted By Mahboubeh in Hydrology

The Arctic's sea ice melted at a record pace in 2012, the ninth-hottest year on record, compounding concerns about climate change underscored by extreme weather such as Hurricane Sandy, the UN weather agency said Thursday.

In a report on the situation in 2012, the World Meterological Organization said that during the August to September melting season, the Arctic's sea ice cover was just 3.4 m http://www.interaksyon.com -

Scientists link frozen spring to dramatic Arctic sea ice loss

Climate scientists have linked the massive snowstorms and bitter spring weather now being experienced across Britain and large parts of Europe and North America to the dramatic loss of Arctic sea ice.
