Temperatures in the Southwest U.S. are predicted to increase, with the greatest warming (3.5-6.5 degrees F) in the summer season and a localized maximum in central Utah, according to a new technical report produced as part of a series of regional climate descriptions by the NOAA National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service prepared as input for the U.S.
Warmer-than-average temperatures have persisted in Arizona and New Mexico over the past month, with temperatures 2 to 4 degrees F above average, according to the latest Climate Outlook from CLIMAS.
Warming global average surface temperatures over the past century have contributed to an increase in the frequency of large storm surges from tropical storms in the Atlantic, according to a new study in PNAS.
Trees are more stressed under warmer conditions due to higher vapor pressure deficits (VPDs)—a measure of how much water the air can hold compared to what is already there—according to a study soon to be published in the Journal of Geophysical Research.
Last week Arctic sea ice reached its smallest extent since record keeping began in 1979 and has now dropped below 1.54 million square miles, with at least one week still left in the melt season, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado Boulder.
Summertime warming due to megapolitan expansion and associated land-use changes in Arizona’s Sun Corridor—the region stretching from Nogales to Prescott—could approach 7.2 degrees F over 2006 temperatures by mid-century, according to a new study in Nature Climate Change.
Extreme summer temperatures, such as those in Texas and Oklahoma in 2011 and Moscow in 2010, were definitively the result of global warming, according to a new study by NASA scientists published in PNAS. The authors found that in the summer, colder-than-average temperatures now—in the most rec
A new study, conducted by Richard Muller (a known climate change denier) and other scientists from Berkeley Earth, shows that the Earth has warmed about 2.7 degrees F in the last 250 years, and that this warming closely follows carbon dioxide concentrations.
