View Resource UMass Scientists Lead Team Reconstructing Global Temperature Over Past Six Centuries

University of Massachusetts geoscientists Drs. Michael Mann and Raymond Bradley published this news-breaking research paper in the April 23rd, 1998 issue of Nature. The authors examine climate data in detail and conclude that three recent years were the warmest since 1400 AD. In addition to the paper (Adobe Acrobat [.pdf] format--click on "Study"), the site contains a news release, two of the...

View Resource Methane Gas May Have Caused Global Warming 55 Million Years Ago

According to an article published in the November 19, 1999, issue of the journal Science, a massive release of methane gas (CH4) may have caused global warming during the Paleocene Epoch 55 million years ago. The process began with a gradual atmospheric warming which sent warm currents of surface water down to the ocean floor. Solid methane, called methane hydrate, warmed and became gaseous. The...

View Resource Global Warming: Early Warning Signs

Created by a host of organizations (Environmental Defense Fund, Natural Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club, Union of Concerned Scientists, US Public Interest Research Group, World Resources Institute, and World Wildlife Fund), this site seeks to provide evidence of the "fingerprints" and "harbingers" of global warming. A clickable map of the world enables users to take a closer look at...

View Resource Reconciling Observations of Global Temperature Change

The National Research Council's Panel on Reconciling Temperature Observations published this report in 2000. The National Academy Press Website offers free online viewing of this important publication, which evaluated the much-publicized discrepancy between surface and atmospheric temperatures in the global change records. The Panel found that "the warming trend in global-mean surface temperature...

View Resource Climate Change Science: An Analysis of Some Key Questions

This new report from the National Academies' National Research Council was produced in response to a request from the Bush administration. Written by a distinguished committee, the report attempts to summarize our current understanding of global climate change and examine what the future may hold for the 21st century and the extent to which warming may be attributable to human activity. Among...

View Resource Monthly surface air temperature time series area-averaged over the 30-degree latitudinal belts of the globe

A new report containing nearly a century's-worth of air temperature data is available online from the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC). The mean monthly and annual values of surface air temperature were compiled from existing World Weather Records, Monthly Climatic Data for the World, and Meteorological Data for Individual Years over the Northern Hemisphere (excluding the former...

View Resource NASA Goddard Institute: Hansen and Sato 2001

The NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is under the direction of Dr. James Hansen, conducts basic research in space and earth sciences. A recent publication by Dr. Hansen and Mki. Sato, entitled Trends of Measured Climate Forcing Agents, found (in part) that a "remarkable deceleration in the growth rate of GHG climate forcing occurred in the past 20 years." The report explains...
