Earth’s orbit affects millennial climate variability

There is ample geological evidence to show that Earth’s climate experienced millennial-scale variability superimposed on glacial-interglacial fluctuations during the Pleistocene. The magnitude of millennial climate variability has been linked to glacial cycles over the past 800 thousand years (kyr). For the period leading up to the mid-Pleistocene transition, when global glaciations were less severe but […]

Climate variability leads to more intense thunderstorms • Earth.com

Climate variability leads to more intense thunderstorms In a new study by Texas A&M University, experts report that large thunderstorms in the southern Great Plains of the United States have increased in frequency and intensity. The researchers found that these changes are linked to climate variability. “Thunderstorms in the southern Great Plains of United States […]

Scientists study how regional climate variability affects animals in arid North America: UNM Newsroom

As visual evidence of climate change continues to shed light on a huge problem in the world, scientists studying at several National Science Foundation (NSF) Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) sites are partially tackling the problem. problem by examining changes in the diversity and abundance of small mammals to understand their vulnerabilities to climate change. Long-term […]

Scientists: Climate variability will intensify in the Great Plains | Land and Cattle Post

Cow / calf operations in the Great Plains are likely to be affected by the increased variability in rainfall which supports forage production for 50% of the country’s cow herd. Texas A&M AgriLife photo By ADAM RUSSELL Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Mother Nature has provided increasingly erratic precipitation for the Great Plains over the past […]

Climate variability and pandemic – creating insecurity

Mohamed Zamir | Posted: 07 March 2021 21:46:40 | Update: March 16, 2021, 8:15 p.m. Currently, in many parts of the world, environmentalists are referring to a 2018 United Nations security resolution that warned of the adverse effects of climate change, ecological changes and natural disasters. This warning is now being realized through what is […]
