Experts Discuss Recent Heat Waves and Atmospheric Changes

The impacts of global warming are now ‘playing out in real-time’. Mike Mann (Penn State), Jennifer Francis (Rutgers), and Noah Diffenbaugh (Stanford), discuss the recent heat waves around the globe, and how it connects with the jet stream pattern, moderated by Markeya Thomas of Climate Signals.

Jet Stream Stalled over Sweden Climate Weather Connection Explained

This heatwave across much of the northern hemisphere could continue for weeks, and possibly even months. And accelerated warming in the Arctic compared to the rest of the planet could be a key contributor. https://www.newscientist.com/article/2174889-warming-arctic-could-be-behind-heatwave-sweeping-northern-hemisphere/ Jennifer Francis (Rutgers University), speaks March 2018 about weather changes. And how are those related to climate change? Full talk…

Thousands of little Volcano like Hills form in Arctic!

Scientist speculated that pingos may erupt and lead to the creation of craters – small lakes, thaw ponds. New satellite observations reveal continuous trend.

The New Record Low Arctic Sea Ice and Our Weather

Arctic sea ice decline has long been projected to occur. 2018 and 2017 are the two lowest winter time Arctic sea ice records observed. Disappearing sea ice and moisture transport into the Arctic are believed to cause something called Arctic amplification, which in turn has been linked to two effects (weaker westerly winds, and intensified…

Scientist Reveals 7% More Water Vapor Fuels Storms Today

Jennifer Francis, Ph.D., Research Professor I, Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences, Rutgers University, speaks about extreme weather changes. And how are those related to climate change? In this presentation, Dr. Francis will explain new research that links increasing extreme weather events with the rapidly warming and melting Arctic during recent decades. Evidence suggests that…

Trump: Record Cold Disproves Global Warming!

CO2 emissions from fossil fuel burning caused the Arctic to warm at least twice as fast as the rest of globe, resulting in the disappearance of Arctic sea ice – which in turn weakens the polar vortex, which in turn favors cold air intrusion into lower latitudes, and vise-versa.

Arctic Sea Ice and Permafrost Status Report 2017

The Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on Earth, affecting people in the region, fish and wildlife they depend on for food, and their environment. This unprecedented change has ramifications far beyond the region for the global economy, weather, climate, sea level, trade and security. Watch the full Arctic Report 2017 AGU press conference…

Francis: A Trigger for Rapid Arctic Warming

Jennifer Francis from Rutgers University speaks about our atmosphere with a scope on the Arctic response to climate change and the connection to weather. This video is part of a panel presentation published by Earth Institute November 2017, with already improved sound quality (reduced humming sound).

Arctic Sea Ice Extent 2nd lowest on Record for the Date

Another “warm” and slow freeze season in the #Arctic. Sea ice extent is the 2nd lowest on record for the date (2016 – lowest) & 1.9 million km^2 below the 1980s average… https://twitter.com/ZLabe/status/932663163476045825

The 936 PPM CO2 NASA Model Prediction

This NASA visualization is based on the latest IPCC report, and uses the business as usual scenario, where carbon dioxide concentrations rise to 936 parts per million—more than double today’s levels of 400 parts per million—by the year 2100. Temperature anomalies are estimated to be close to 4°C in the Arctic. https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/details.cgi?aid=11453

Arctic Climate Feedbacks [peer-reviewed]

This peer-reviewed educational video introduces feedbacks that are important in the Arctic climate system. It is aimed at an undergraduate non-science major level. The video was produced by a team of CIRES scientists in collaboration with CIRES Education and Outreach. Video production was funded by Professor Jennifer Kay’s CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation…

Vanishing Arctic Ice and Amplification

While heat waves and more intense storms have been directly linked to a warming Earth, new research is exploring possible impacts of an Arctic that is warming at twice the pace of the rise in global temperatures. Jennifer Francis, Rutgers University, discusses new research and efforts to understand this controversial aspect of climate change in…
