  • A critical appraisal of the global warming debate
  • Climatic variation ; Climatic warming ; Climatology ; Concept ; Forecast ; Global change ; Greenhouse effect ; Model ; Sea level
  • Major changes are occurring in the global warming debate. Popular alarmist views are giving way to more balanced assessments of the situation. There is now greater emphasis on the lack of consensus among climatologists on fundamental scientific

  • In this paper, the AA. analyze the characteristics of 44 glacier systems in Chinese Glacier Inventory which were divided by watershed boundaries. They apply functional model to simulate the glacier systems to climate warming, and predict different
  • sensitivity types of glacier system's variation trends under different climate warming events.

  • Bibliography ; Climatic variation ; Climatic warming ; Global change ; Greenhouse effect ; Human impact ; Impact ; Model ; Sea level ; Surface temperature
  • This progress report on global warming will focus on : the outcome of the Kyoto conference and its significance for future global climate change, and the current state of the global climate system, in particular the surface air temperature record
  • and its interpretation. The A. will also consider recent work that has a bearing on just how significant current and future global climate warming may be for the planet and for the life which inhabits it.
  • Clouds and climate change
  • Arizona ; Climatic variation ; Climatic warming ; Cloud ; Global change ; Mexico ; Monsoon ; Subtropical zone ; United States of America
  • Author and students investigate whether subtropical, convective clouds warm the atmosphere by trapping earth's heat or they cool it by reflecting sunshine. Study is conducted during the summer monsoon of Arizona and northwest Mexico. They found via
  • infrared sensors that the higher clouds had a mainly warming effect. The lower clouds cooled the temperatures when they covered more than 70% of the sky and yielded precipitation. The warming effect was quite evident at night and in the mountains
  • and appeared to be connected with global warming. - (SLD)
  • Global warming : the importance of the past in understanding the future
  • Climatic warming ; Ecosystem ; Forecast ; Global change ; Palaeo-environment ; Quaternary ; Vegetation
  • The current global warming controversy has sparked vigorous research activity, the ultimate aim of which is to undersatnd the effects of predicted climatic changes on both natural and managed ecosystems. Pointers from the past geological record

  • Climat ; Climat local ; Hongrie ; Précipitation ; Réchauffement climatique ; Température
  • The paper summarises the examination of temperature and precipitation trends in Hungary as well as climate change scenarios for this region. It can be concluded that the climate of Hungary has become warmer and dryer during the last 110 year period
  • Global warming
  • Aerosol ; Climate fluctuation ; Climatic variation ; Climatic warming ; Global change ; Greenhouse effect ; Human impact ; Impact ; Modelling
  • This review of the recent scientific literature on climate change focuses on one aspect of the issue which has come to the fore over the last three years, the role of atmospheric aerosols in contemporary cimate change. The emergence
  • of these particulates as a significant modifier of the atmospheric and climatic environment has, at the same time, offered new opportunities for detecting human-induced climate change in the observed record and also complicated the prediction of future climate change

  • Global warming and permafrost in Eurasia: a catastrophic scenario
  • Catastrophe ; Climatic variation ; Climatic warming ; Cold area ; Eurasia ; Global change ; Ice wedge ; Model ; Permafrost ; Yakutia
  • Since models of global warming predict that climatic changes will be greatest in the Arctic and might already be in progress, it is prudent to attempt to understand the rapidly changing thermal regime on Eurasian cold regions. In this paper
