A series of studies by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and academic institutions offers accumulating evidence that climate change is both lengthening and intensifying pollen seasons in many parts of the United States.
The Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) is inviting proposals under two separate programmes, the Annual Regional Call for Research Proposals (ARCP) Programme and the Scientific Capacity Building/Enhancement for Sustainable Development in Developing Countries (CAPaBLE) Programme, for funding from April 2013, and is able to provide
The national temperature of 57.1 degrees F during spring was 5.2 degrees F above the long-term average, besting the previous warmest spring of 1910 by 2.0 degrees F.
Time and Date: The meeting will be held June 14, 2012 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and June 15, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. These times are subject to change.
The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of Barrow, Alaska, reached 400 parts per million (ppm) this spring, according to NOAA measurements, the first time a monthly average measurement for the greenhouse gas attained the 400 ppm mark in a remote location.
The low streamflows seen throughout much of New England this April do not foreshadow a summer drought, as researchers have determined summer rainfall plays a bigger role than snowmelt runoff in determining streamflows in the summer.
A new study published in the journal Nature suggests that most field experiments may underestimate the degree to which the timing of leafing and flowering changes with global warming.
Recent warming of terrestrial climates combined with decreased stream flows has raised concerns about possible increases in stream temperatures in the Pacific continental United States.
A new study by scientists at Stanford and Purdue University projects that corn prices in the United States will become much more volatile in the near term because of more frequent severe heat conditions expected to result from human-caused climate change.
Data collected from long distance swims by polar bears suggest that they do not stop to rest during their journey.
