  • Benefits of Global Warming. Singer, S. Fred // Society;Mar/Apr92, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p33 

    This article explores the potential benefits of global warming. One should perhaps recall that only a decade ago, when climate cooling was a looming issue, a U.S. government study calculated a huge national cost associated with such cooling. More to the point perhaps, actual climate cooling,...

    Ensembles of coupled atmosphere–ocean global circulation model simulations are required to make probabilistic predictions of future climate change. “Perturbed physics” ensembles provide a new approach in which modelling uncertainties are sampled systematically by perturbing...

  • Seasonal Variation in Gross Ecosystem Production, Plant Biomass, and Carbon and Nitrogen Pools in Five High Arctic Vegetation Types. Arndal, M. F.; Illeris, L.; Michelsen, A.; Albert, K.; Tamstorf, M.; Hansen, B. U. // Arctic, Antarctic & Alpine Research;May2009, Vol. 41 Issue 2, p164 

    The Arctic is extremely vulnerable to projected climate change, and global warming may result in major community reorganizations. The aim of this study was a thorough investigation of plant biomass production throughout an entire growing season in five different high arctic vegetation types:...

  • GLOBAL WARMING: THE SOCIAL CONSTRUCTION OF A QUASI-REALITY? Ambler, Dennis // Energy & Environment;2007, Vol. 18 Issue 6, p805 

    The pressure to prove that anthropogenic global warming is real, and happening now has become so strong, that in spite of major and irresolvable uncertainties in climate models, there is a daily renewal and re-inforcement of the idea of scientific certainty in the mainstream media. Whilst...

  • Now climates face extinction.  // New Scientist;3/31/2007, Vol. 193 Issue 2597, p6 

    This article discusses how half of the world's climates may vanish by the year 2107 as a result of global warming. New types of climate will emerge with higher temperatures and more rain. John Williams of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, suggests that it is the coldest climates that will be...

  • High-resolution simulations of global climate, part 2: effects of increased greenhouse cases. Govindasamy, B.; Duffy, P. B.; Coquard, J. // Climate Dynamics;Nov2003, Vol. 21 Issue 5/6, p391 

    We report results from the highest-resolution simulations of global warming yet performed with an atmospheric general circulation model. We compare the climatic response to increased greenhouse gases of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) climate model, CCM3, at T42 and T170...

  • A mathematical analysis of the divergence problem in dendroclimatology. Loehle, Craig // Climatic Change;Jun2009, Vol. 94 Issue 3/4, p233 

    Tree rings provide a primary data source for reconstructing past climates, particularly over the past 1,000 years. However, divergence has been observed in twentieth century reconstructions. Divergence occurs when trees show a positive response to warming in the calibration period but a lesser...

    Two coupled general circulation models, i.e., the Meteorological Research Institute (MRI) and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) models, were chosen to examine changes in mixed layer depth (MLD) in the equatorial tropical Pacific and its relationship with ENSO under climate change...
