Scientists find that El Nino is becoming more active

MEDIA RELEASE A new approach to analyzing paleo-climate reconstructions of the El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon resolves disagreements and reveals that ENSO activity during the 20th century has been unusually high compared to the past 600 years. The results are published in Climate of the Past by a team of scientists from the University […]

Sea level influenced tropical climate during the last ice age

MEDIA RELEASE Scientists look at past climates to learn about climate change and the ability to simulate it with computer models. One region that has received a great deal of attention is the Indo-Pacific warm pool, the vast pool of warm water stretching along the equator from Africa to the western Pacific Ocean. In a […]

Researchers explain uncertainty of South Pacific rainfall projections

MEDIA RELEASE With greenhouse warming, rainfall in the South Pacific islands will depend on two competing effects – an increase due to overall warming and a decrease due to changes in atmospheric water transport – according to a study by an international team of scientists led by Matthew Widlansky and Axel Timmermann at the International […]
