Climate change problem has always been of the interest for scientists and researchers. Numerous investigations are aimed to prove human cause of global warming while many global reports still deny the fact people influence climate change somehow. These endless disputes are expressed in numerous scientific articles to examine and prove supported points of view.
Here is the overview of some most comprehensive studies on climate change for the last three years. These papers hit the scientific world at one time and influenced many further investigations in the field of climate change.
Papers on climate change 2014
- Causes of California drought linked to climate change, Stanford scientists say
- Climate Change and Internal Displacement
- Recent intensification of wind-driven circulation in the Pacific and the ongoing warming hiatus
- Marine Ice Sheet Collapse Potentially Under Way for the Thwaites Glacier Basin, West Antarctica
- A spurious jump in the satellite record: has Antarctic sea ice expansion been overestimated?

A new research paper from Stanford scientists links the unprecedented drought in California to human-caused climate change. They used a new combination of statistical techniques and computer simulation to prove that high atmospheric pressure over the Pacific Ocean which diverts storms away from California forms in the presence of greenhouse gas concentrations. This research has become one of the most comprehensive studies in the field.

It has long been known that climate change can displace people within national borders: over the past 5 years about 27 million people have been displaced by natural disasters. This paper is adapted from the 2011 report of Chaloka Beyani, the Special Reporter on the human rights (the Secretary-General), and it highlights key concepts, principles and complexities around this issue. Its authors also make some recommendations for future action.

The Earth’s average surface temperature remains more or less steady since 2001 despite constant increases in atmospheric greenhouse gases. It has been identified that a key component of such a hiatus is cool temperature of eastern pacific sea. The given paper is a research to explain the reasons why (and how) the ocean remains relatively cool in spite of constant radioactive forcing.

WAIS (the West Antarctic Ice Sheet) was always considered prone to instability. The given investigation used a numerical model to learn the sensitivity of Thwaites Glacier to ocean melt; they also examined whether the unstable retreat of Thwaites Glacier is already under way. Their numerical model reproduces observed losses and lets scientists count whether such losses can be considered moderate.

Arctic sea ice retreats while satellite observations give us the opposite data and suggest that Antarctic sea ice is expanding. The given research suggests such mismatch could be due to an error in the satellite data; a team of scientists say that Antarctic sea ice does not expand as fast as we all previously thought.
Papers on climate change 2013
- Survey finds 97% of climate science papers agree warming is man-made
- Risk Management Approach Could Motivate Climate Change Action
- Distinctive climate signals in reanalysis of global ocean heat content
- Arctic methane catastrophe scenario is based on new empirical observations
- New study: Pacific Ocean holds the key to surface warming “hiatus”

The team of science volunteers has published the results of their global survey they made to find out how many climate papers rejected the human cause of global warming. They examined more than 12,000 scientific papers published between 1993 and 2003 and compared the results with the ones from scientific papers published between 1991 and 2011. All papers used to get results were rated by respectful scientists to make sure they were worth mentioning in the survey.

1,000 professional geologists and engineers examined the influence of political divisions over climate change on practical decision-makers who confront all risks it presents to economy and businesses. The results have been published in this paper, and they are for proponents of more decisive actions. It might be more successful if weather and politics come together to impose regulatory action.

What influence does ocean warming have on the Earth energy and climate sensitivity? The given paper presents the evolution of ocean heat between 1958 and 2009 from a new reanalysis of the ocean and provides both the reasons of such a global ocean heat and the risks it might pose to global warming. All the experiments illustrate that about 30% of warming has occurred below 700 m already.

Methane levels in the Arctic are at new record highs now, and scientists take attempts to explain this scenario and prevent a catastrophe. The given paper examines and briefly describes the results of many authoritative researchers” investigations devoted to this problem; their new empirical observations might give us solutions for the Arctic methane catastrophe.

Over the last decade, the earth’s atmosphere warms more slowly, and all climate scientists work to find out the reasons and answer the question “Why?” This paper links this phenomenon with the tropical Pacific Ocean; according to them, we should understand natural changes in the Pacific Ocean to find out what’s going on and how long it’s likely to continue before making a comeback with even faster warming.

The natural variability of climate can be the main reason why people still do not recognize their influence on climate change. Very often media reports do not even mention the potential connection between global warming and such climate events like forest fires or widespread drought. This paper describes the connection and illustrates the data in ways understandable to the public, taking into account all details (climate variability, season temperature anomalies, etc.).

This paper demonstrates what people think about a wide range of climate policy options. It finds that such kinds of policies as taxes or emission trading mechanisms are not supported by the public, but people are ready to support policies least endorsed by economists. For example, they tend to support different programs related to vehicular fuel mandates, energy development, etc.

We know many facts about climate: its definition, variability, measures, changes, and statistics over centuries… The given paper helps us understand all those facts, not just know them. The information in this paper is based on numerous reports of National Research Council made by experts who have reviewed many studies for many years of accumulating evidence.

More than a thousand geoscientists and professional engineers responded the survey to get the data for this paper. It examines the framings of these professionals’ attitudes towards climate change science and regulatory measures. The survey helps to examine the professionals’ legitimation and position of themselves within their professional institutions.

This article reveals the results of James Lawrence Powell’s, a geochemist and National Science Board member, research concerning climate change denial. He examined hundreds of papers about global warming published in actual scientific journals and compared them to the number of articles that denied climate changes. What did he find out?
