Modelling Climatic Impacts of Low Clouds over Tropical Waters (1 December 2015)
They may look innocuous enough, but the power they wield on the Earth's global energy balance is a whole nother story...
Transgenerational OA Exposure Has Positive Carryover Effects (30 November 2015)
What's good for one generation of oysters appears to also be good for the generations that follow them...
Continental U.S. Hurricane Trends Unimpacted by a 100 ppm Increase in CO2 (27 November 2015)
The 100-ppm (33%) observed increase in atmospheric CO2 over the past century has yielded no discernible impact on U.S. hurricane trends; and that observation suggests there is no compelling reason to believe future increases in CO2 will have any measurable impact either...
Plant Growth Database (27 November 2015)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Willow (Guo et al., 2015). To access the entire database, click here.
On a Problem with Cultivating Poplar Trees for Biofuel Production (25 November 2015)
A new study suggests that we must look a little deeper into the issue before we leap headlong into implementing a policy that could produce more serious side effects than those of the problem the policy was initially intended to resolve...
Coral Islands Defying the Negative Consequences of Sea Level Rise (24 November 2015)
As climate alarmists continue to predict the demise (i.e., submergence) of various coral islands scattered throughout the world's oceans, the islands appear to be capable of taking care of themselves in this regard...
Ocean Acidification Database (24 November 2015)
The latest addition of peer-reviewed data archived to our database of marine organism responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment is Cinnamon Anemone Fish [Amphiprion melanopus] (Allan et al., 2014; tail width). To access the entire database, click here.
Some Like It Hot! ... But Not, Apparently, Atlantic Hurricanes (24 November 2015)
Yes, some new research -- based upon geochemical assessments of lake sediments -- strongly suggests that these terrifying storms tend to be less frequent and severe the warmer Earth's climate becomes...
Arctic and Antarctic Sea-Ice Behavior: What Do They Teach Us? (20 November 2015)
When sea ice in one of earth's polar regions has been declining for several years, but increasing in the other polar region, it's kind of difficult to support claims of global warming...
Plant Growth Database (19 November 2015)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Mungbean (Gao et al., 2015). To access the entire database, click here.
Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies Impact Ocean Precipitation (18 November 2015)
After decades of striving to develop climate models capable of accurately predicting the nature of precipitation throughout all parts of the Earth, achieving that goal appears to still be far outside the reach of our much-less-than-perfect abilities...
Rapid Adaptation of a Reef-building Coral to Temperature Stress (17 November 2015)
In addition to acclimation, corals likely have another important tool in adaptation, which can operate over relatively short timescales to allow corals to successfully cope with any future changes in ocean temperature...
Ocean Acidification (Effects on Marine Plants: Macroalgae) -- Summary (17 November 2015)
Most studies of the effects of atmospheric CO2 enrichment on Earth's vegetation have dealt with common terrestrial plants, ranging from grasses to trees, while very few have focused on sizable plants of aquatic realms. This summary reports the results of several research studies that have evaluated the responses of marine macroalgae to elevated levels of atmospheric CO2...
Ocean Acidification Database (17 November 2015)
The latest addition of peer-reviewed data archived to our database of marine organism responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment is Foraminifera [Ammonia aomoriensis] (Haynert and Schonfeld, 2014; temperature = 13°C, salinity = 25 ppt). To access the entire database, click here.
