Arizona has warmed the fastest of any U.S. state since 1970 at about 0.64 degrees F per decade, and is the fourth fastest warming state since 1912, warming about 0.27 degrees F per decade.
Stream temperatures in the western U.S. are not warming as quickly as scientists expected, according to a new study in Geophysical Research Letters.
Global warming may initially increase plant growth in Arizona grasslands, but then will stunt growth as more time passes, according to a recent Nature Climate Change publication.
Three new analyses on climate extremes together explain how extremes may change in the future, what’s driving them, their impacts on people and ecosystems, and how we can adapt. The most extensive report is from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and it details the current state of knowledge on climate extremes.
New research published in Ecology Letters shows that a single climate parameter, the timing of spring snowmelt, has many different effects on the population growth of the Mormon Fritillar
What had previously been thought—that mountain pine beetles are able to fit two reproductive cycles into a single season due to warming temperatures—has finally been documented by the authors of a new study set to be published in The American Naturalist in May.
Scientists have produced additional evidence confirming that greenhouse gas emissions by humans are the primary force driving global warming.
Previously rare extreme summer temperatures are occurring more frequently in some regions of the U.S.—especially in the Southwest, the upper tier of the Midwest, and the Atlantic coast—due to climate change, according to a new study in Climatic Change.
