European summer weather linked to North Atlantic freshwater anomalies in preceding years

  2024-03-14 (or before) in

Abstract. Amplified Arctic ice loss in recent decades has been linked to the increased occurrence of extreme mid-latitude weather. The underlying mechanisms remain elusive, however. One potential link occurs through the ocean as the loss of sea ice and glacial ice leads to increased freshwater fluxes into the ocean. Thus, in this study, we examine the link between North Atlantic freshwater anomalies and European summer weather. Combining a comprehensive set of observational products, we show that stronger freshwater anomalies are associated with a sharper sea surface temperature front between the subpolar and the subtropical Nor...

China Suspected of Underreporting Emissions, with Japanese Satellite Finding More CO2

  2023-12-08 in The Japan News

DUBAI — China is suspected of underreporting carbon dioxide emissions in the country, according to an analysis by the Environment Ministry of satellite data. The ministry has compiled a report that says the annual rise in CO2 concentrations is about 1.5 to three times higher than estimates based on emission sources and other data from China. It concludes that the data from China is likely inaccurate.

Global Carbon Budget 2023

  2023-12-05 (or before) in Earth System Science Data

Abstract. Accurate assessment of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and their redistribution among the atmosphere, ocean, and terrestrial biosphere in a changing climate is critical to better understand the global carbon cycle, support the development of climate policies, and project future climate change. Here we describe and synthesize data sets and methodology to quantify the five major components of the global carbon budget and their uncertainties. Fossil CO2 emissions (EFOS) are based on energy statistics and cement production data, while emissions from land-use change (ELUC), mainly deforestation, are based on la...
