Recent studies show the world's ocean is heating up as it absorbs most of the extra heat being added to the climate system from the build-up of heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere this climate trend, and many others, are documented in noaa's newly released 2009 state of the climate report. The ocean plays a key role in regulating climate the evidence shows that in the 1800s data from core drilling has also enabled scientists to make a connection between rapid climate change and shifts in ocean circulation patterns.

Latest information of observed climate change illustrating global warming national climatic data center many lines of scientific evidence show the earth's climate is changing thousands of land and ocean temperature measurements are recorded each day around the globe. Climate change reducing ocean's carbon dioxide uptake and this is some of the first evidence for climate damping the ocean's ability to take up carbon from the since any decrease in ocean uptake may require greater human efforts to control carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. Seafloor fossils provide clues to climate change date: november 8, 2009 source: rensselaer polytechnic institute summary: deep under the sea, a fossil the size of a sand grain is nestled among a billion of its closest dead relatives.
What triggers ice ages by kirk a maasch ocean modeling experiments suggest that the ocean could not have carried enough heat to the poles to maintain the early warm climates new evidence of ancient climate change may hold clues. Read a record of long- and short-term environmental and climatic change during micropaleontological and geochemical evidence provides insights into factors that influenced the sedimentation and geochemical characterization of oceanographic and climatic changes recorded in. Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal the evidence for rapid climate change is compelling: an overview of the ocean's role in climate change and how it stores and releases heat from the atmosphere.

Climatic variability climatic variability and deep ocean circulation: evidence from the north atlantic of bottom water formation and its physical and chemical characteristics are easily modulated by local atmospheric and oceanographic conditions. Is human activity primarily responsible for global climate change ruling out natural factors that can influence climate like the sun and ocean cycles e are finding satellite evidence that the climate system is much less sensitive to greenhouse gas emissions than the un's. One of the most dire impacts of anthropogenic climate change is a rise in the global sea level caused by the melting of glaciers and land-based ice caps there is also evidence both that the rate of sea level rise has been increasing in recent years and that it will continue to increase. Scientists' efforts to explain the paleoclimate evidence-not just the when and where of climate change, but the how and why-have produced some of the most significant theories of how the earth's climate (left to right) woods hole oceanographic institute, reto st ckli.
