Solar cyclic variability can modulate winter Arctic climate

Sci Rep. 2018; 8: 4864. Published online 2018 Mar 20. doi: 10.1038/s41598-018-22854-0 PMCID: PMC5861038 PMID: 29559646 Indrani Roy Abstract This study investigates the role of the eleven-year solar cycle on the Arctic climate during 1979–2016. It reveals that during those years, when the winter solar sunspot number (SSN) falls below 1.35 standard deviations (or mean value), …

A DYNAMIC, COUPLED THERMAL RESERVOIR APPROACH TO ATMOSPHERIC ENERGY TRANSFER PART II: APPLICATIONS

R. Clark, Mar. 21.2013 | E&E Submission V4 Part II Final Draft Roy Clark, Ph.D. Ventura Photonics 1336 N. Moorpark Road #224 Thousand Oaks, CA 91360 USA ABSTRACT The coupled thermal reservoir approach described in Part I is demonstrated by analyzing flux and meteorological data covering a range of thermal reservoir conditions. These include mid …

The stable stationary value of the earth’s global average atmospheric Planck-weighted greenhouse-gas optical thickness

By Ferenc Miskolczi 3 Holston Lane, Hampton VA 23664, USA Article in Energy & Environment · August 2010 DOI: 10.1260/0958-305X.21.4.243 ABSTRACT By the line-by-line method, a computer program is used to analyze Earth atmospheric radiosonde data from hundreds of weather balloon observations. Interms of a quasi-all-sky protocol, fundamental infrared atmospheric radiative flux components are calculated: …

A Null Hypothesis For CO2

R. Clark Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2009-0171 6/17/09 Roy Clark Thousand Oaks Summary The energy transfer processes that occur at the Earth’s surface are examined from first principles. The effect of small changes in the solar constant caused by variations in the sunspot cycles and small increases in downward long wave infrared flux due to a …

Global Warming: Correlation Between Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Concentration and Temperature

Karl Glaser, Roche Colorado Corporation. Boulder, Colorado ABSTRACT The correlation between atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration and surface temperature was determined at various locations, using published data from the Goddard Institute of Space Studies and the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. Significant correlations were seen, with a lag of approximately 45 – 60 years between the rise …

A comparison of bioclimatic conditions on Franz Josef Land (the Arctic) between the turn of the nineteenth to twentieth century and present day

Andrzej Araźny, Przemysław Wyszyński, Rajmund Przybylak First Online: 10 January 2019 Abstract The paper presents the variability of meteorological conditions: air temperature, wind speed and relative air humidity; and biometeorological indices: wind chill temperature, predicted clothing insulation and accepted level of physical activity on Franz Josef Land (in Teplitz Bay and Calm Bay) in the …

The United (Socialist ) Nations – Progress on Global Governance, via Climate Change , Sustainable Development and Bio-diversity

SPPI Original Paper by Dennis Ambler | February 17, 2011 Whilst the continual scientific rebuttals of the climate reports produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) may make many people think that this charade cannot continue much longer, behind the scenes it is quite irrelevant; the long-term process marches relentlessly on as if …

Science or Science Fiction? Professionals’ Discursive Construction of Climate Change

Lianne M. Lefsrud, Renate E. Meyer First Published November 19, 2012 Research Article https://doi.org/10.1177/0170840612463317 Abstract This paper examines the framings and identity work associated with professionals’ discursive construction of climate change science, their legitimation of themselves as experts on ‘the truth’, and their attitudes towards regulatory measures. Drawing from survey responses of 1077 professional engineers …

Note on the Theory of the Greenhouse

PHILOSOPHICAL MAGAZINE AND JOURNAL OF SCIENCE VOL. XVII.—SIXTH SERIES. JANUARY—JUNE 1909. [Page 319] By Professor R. W. Wood THERE appears to be a widespread belief that the comparatively high temperature produced within a closed space covered with glass, and exposed to solar radiation, results from a transformation of wave-length, that is, that the heat waves …
