Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. writes on his blog today: Every once in a while. a nugget of new research insight appears that adds to our understanding of the climate system, and its complexity. One article of this type has appeared. … Continue reading ?
Scientists suggest that the Little Ice Age was triggered by an unusual, 50-year episode of four massive volcanic eruptions. This led to an expansion of sea ice and a related weakening of Atlantic currents that caused the cool period... Read Post
According to a new study, the Little Ice Age began abruptly between A.D. 1275 and 1300, triggered by repeated, explosive volcanism, and was sustained for centuries by a self- perpetuating sea ice-ocean feedback system in the North A... Read Post
Small fluctuations in the sizes of ice sheets during the last ice age were enough to trigger abrupt climate change, scientists have found. The team compared simulated model data with that retrieved from ice cores and marine sediment... Read Post
