New ice core record shows climate variability in West Antarctica

Similar warming and cooling trends occurred in the mid-nineteenth and eighteenth centuries From AGU highlights: A 308-year ice core record provides new data on climate variability in coastal West Antarctica…

Study: warming of Antarctic peninsula due to ocean and atmospheric circulation patterns

From the University of Washington, something we covered earlier in WUWT from the BAS, but UW is now just getting around to press releases. The Antarctic peninsula is essentially a…

Recent climate, glacier changes in Antarctica at the 'upper bound' of normal

From the University of Washington some walkback? In the last few decades, glaciers at the edge of the icy continent of Antarctica have been thinning, and research has shown the…

Evidence for a Global Medieval Warm Period

From CO2Science: Medieval Warm Period (Antarctica) — Summary Was there a Medieval Warm Period somewhere in the world in addition to the area surrounding the North Atlantic Ocean, where its…

Antarctic summer effect confined to peninsula

From the British Antarctic Survey , at least they didn’t pull a Steig and try to claim the observed effect on the Peninsula affects the entire continent. The peninsula is…

New study: Ocean-driven warming along the western Antarctic Peninsula needs to be considered as part of a natural centennial timescale cycle of climate variability

From Cardiff University: Tiny fossils hold answers to big questions on climate change Research explores 12,000 year fossil record The western Antarctic Peninsula is one of the fastest warming regions…

How GISS creates long term Antarctic warming

From Tallblokes Talkshop, note what happens before 1958. HOW GISS MANUFACTURES WARMING (LOTS OF IT) IN THE ANTARCTIC by Roger Andrews The close match between GISS and me after 1955…

RC's Dr. Eric Steig boreholes himself on Antarctica

This is something that needs wider circulation, hence its appearance here. I’ve been mulling over how to best present this, and decided there’s nothing I could do in the way…

Antarctic peninsula was 1.3°C warmer than today 11,000 years ago

From the British Antarctic Survey New climate history adds to understanding of recent Antarctic Peninsula warming Results published this week by a team of polar scientists from Britain, Australia and…

Dear Woods Hole and NCAR, maybe you missed this trend in Antarctic sea ice?

More modeling madness projecting the future, but the actual data for the past 30 years says otherwise, with a positive trend. Regular commenter Julienne Stroeve of NSIDC is one of…
