If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2013 and 2014, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 then, impact factor = Y/X Satellite data shows the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is also losing mass, and a recent study indicated that East Antarctica, which had displayed no clear warming or cooling trend, may also have started to lose mass in the last few years.

This illustrates the high temperatures of the Medieval Warm Period, the lows of the Little Ice Age, and the very high (and climbing) temperature of this decade. Aerosols influence the climate indirectly by interacting with nearby clouds leading to small changes in cloud cover, thickness, and altitude, which significantly affect Earth’s radiative balance. Notice that average global temperatures vary by roughly 10 degrees Celsius between warm and cool periods.

Does it respond to greenhouse gases the way we think it did over the last 50 million years? These winds blow from east to west and push on the waters of the oceans as they blow across their surface. The tropopause ends at about 6-12 miles above the surface of Earth where it meets the stratosphere which is about 20 miles thick and reaches to about 30 miles above the surface of Earth. 7. Climate Literacy: The Essential Principles of Climate Sciences summarizes the most important principles and concepts of the climate sciences.

In respect to enhancing the greenhouse effect, or the likelihood of AGW, the particular issue is focused in the 8-18µm band where water vapour is a weak absorber of radiation and where the Earth's thermal radiation is greatest.* Increased concentrations of CO2 and other radiative gases here mean that less heat is lost to space from the Earth's lower atmosphere, and temperatures at the Earth's surface are therefore likely to increase.

Recent climate changes have had widespread impacts on human and natural systems. Hydrology encompasses the availability, distribution, movement and quality of the waters of the earth and its relationship with the environment within every phase of the water cycle. The oxygen is given off as a waste product and the carbohydrates are stored as a source of energy to be used later by the plants. The National Climate Assessment summarizes the impacts of climate change on the United States, now and in the future.

This affects the total amount of sunlight each hemisphere receives in its respective summer, rather than the peak intensity of the solar radiation during the northern summer. This works great for the faster students. The composition of the atmosphere also controls climate. In later years he published the first estimates of the change in carbon dioxide over time, prompting Charles Keeling to set up the first dedicated observatory for measuring gases in the atmosphere.

Previously she was Director of the Institute of Economic Growth in Delhi, India. The project has six primary objectives: Construction of a fast-physics testbed to rapidly evaluate fast physics in GCMs; execution of a suite of cloud resolving model simulations for selected periods/cases to augment the fast-physics testbed; continuous evaluation of model performance to identify and determine model errors; examination and improvement of parameterizations of key cloud processes/properties; assessment and development of metrics of model performance; and incorporation of newly acquired knowledge on parameterizations into the full participating GCMs.
