Climate variability

Researchers compare global temperature variability during ice ages and interglacials – sciencedaily

Based on a unique global comparison of data from core samples taken from the ocean floor and polar ice caps, AWI researchers have now shown that although climate change has indeed diminished in the world between ice ages and interglacials, the difference is by no means as pronounced as previously assumed. Until now, it was […]

Climate variability

Degradation of the North American ice cap has reduced climate variability in the southern hemisphere – sciencedaily

New research from the University of Colorado at Boulder shows that the changing topography of the ice caps in the northern hemisphere during the last ice age forced changes in Antarctica’s climate, a mechanism of interpolar climate change hitherto undocumented. The new study – published today in the journal Nature and co-authored by researchers at […]
