Mars, too, has macroweather

But weather forecasting on the Red Planet is likely to be even trickier than on Earth
Thu, 2014-11-13 09:53

Weather, which changes day-to-day due to constant fluctuations in the atmosphere, and climate, which varies over decades, are familiar. More recently, a third regime, called “macroweather,” has been used to describe the relatively stable regime between weather and climate.

Global warming ‘pause’ reflects natural fluctuation

Statistical analysis shows pattern consistent with pre-industrial temperature swings, study concludes
Mon, 2014-07-21 14:06

Statistical analysis of average global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 shows that the slowdown in global warming during this period is consistent with natural variations in temperature, according to research by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy.

McGill Nonlinear Physics Professor and Climatologist Shaun Lovejoy: Global Warming is not a "Natural" Occurrence

Wed, 2014-06-11 23:09

Opinion: Research Shows the Global Warming isn't natural

Published on June 9, 2014 | The Gazette

by: Shaun Lovejoy

Last year, the Quebec Skeptics Society laid down a challenge: “If anthropogenic global warming is as strong as scientists claim, then why do they need supercomputers to demonstrate it?”

My immediate response was: “They don’t.”

Macroweather is what you expect

Between short-term weather and long-term climate, there is an intermediate 'macroweather' regime.
Tue, 2013-02-26 11:05

While short-term weather is notoriously volatile, climate is thought to represent a kind of average weather pattern over a long period of time. This dichotomy provides the analytical framework for scientific thinking about atmospheric variability, including climate change.
