Tropical Cyclones and Super Typhoons: Their Influence on China (23 August 2011)

Tropical cyclones and super typhoons impacting China are becoming both less frequent and less ferocious ... Read More

Even slugish limpets can do it ... Read More

The Fate of Boreal Peatlands in a Warming World (23 August 2011)

"Contrary to previous predictions, both ecosystem photosynthesis and respiration showed similar increases in response to warmer and drier conditions," such that "the ecosystem remained a strong net sink for CO2 with an average net ecosystem production of 189 ± 47 gC/m2/year" ... Read More

CO2 and Global Vegetation: From the Last Glacial Maximum to the Pre-Industrial Holocene (23 August 2011)

It is "necessary to invoke ecophysiological CO2 effects in order to account for the reduction in the tropical forest area at [the] LGM as shown by pollen data," which effects are the aerial fertilization and water-use-efficiency-promoting effects of atmospheric CO2 enrichment working in reverse, as the air's CO2 content declines when moving backwards in time from the PIH to the LGM ... Read More

N2 and CO2 Fixation in a Unicellular Marine Cyanobacterium (23 August 2011)

Anthropogenic CO2 enrichment may well "substantially increase global oceanic N2 and CO2 fixation," which two-pronged phenomenon would be a tremendous boon to the marine biosphere ... Read More

Testing the Entire Suite of IPCC AR4 Model (24 August 2011)

Furtado et al. conclude that "for implications on future climate change, the coupled climate models show no consensus on projected future changes in frequency of either the first or second leading pattern of North Pacific SST anomalies," and they say that "the lack of a consensus in changes in either mode also affects confidence in projected changes in the overlying atmospheric circulation" ... Read More

In fact, some are even acting counter to it ... Read More

A 2200-Year Storm History from North Carolina's Barrier Islands (24 August 2011)

Relative to climatic conditions of both the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age, there has more recently been "a general decrease in storminess at mid-latitudes in the North Atlantic," reflecting "more stable climate conditions, fewer storm impacts (both hurricane and nor'easter), and a decrease in the average wind intensity and wave energy field in the mid-latitudes of the North Atlantic" ... Read More

Damaging Tropical Cyclones of China (24 August 2011)

There is "no significant trend in tropical cyclone casualties over the past 24 years" ... Read More
