Climate variability

Antarctica is melting faster than models predict due to climate variability • Earth.com

Decreasing ice levels in Antarctica, as well as future sea level rise, have been underestimated. In a new study by State of pennsylvania, the researchers found that existing models do not take into account climate variability, which has a significant influence on the Antarctic ice sheet. “We know that ice caps are melting as global […]

Polar ice, atmospheric water vapor, the main drivers of variation among climate models

Credit: CC0 Public Domain A Florida State University researcher is part of a team that found that various projections of global warming trends advanced by climate change scientists can be explained by the models’ different predictions of ice loss and vapor. atmospheric water. The work will help climatologists reconcile various models to improve their accuracy, […]
