Studie: Zuidpool zal sneller smelten door veranderende winden



Door Paul Spence at al., Geophysical Research Letters, 12 juli 2014

Projected changes in the winds circling the Antarctic may accelerate global sea level rise significantly more than previously estimated. Changes to Antarctic winds may have a profound impact on warming ocean temperatures under the ice shelves along the coastline of West and East Antarctic. Projected Antarctic wind shifts were included in a detailed global ocean model, and the authors found water up to 4°C warmer than current temperatures rose up to meet the base of the Antarctic ice shelves.

Scientists Warn of Rising Oceans From [South] Polar Melt
Door Justin Gillis en Kenneth Chang, The New York Times, 12 mei 2014

[...] The heat-trapping gases could destabilize other parts of Antarctica as well as the Greenland ice sheet, potentially causing enough sea-level rise that many of the world’s coastal cities would eventually have to be abandoned.

More Evidence Global Surface Temperatures Poised To Rise Rapidly
Door Joe Romm, Climate Progress, 22 juli 2014

A new study finds that when climate models factor in the temporary warming and cooling impact of El Niño and La Niña, they accurately predict recent global warming. And that is consistent with recent studies that led one climatologist to say, "Global temperatures look set to rise rapidly."
Global warming continues to accelerate.
