Aerosol emissions in East Asia driven by consumption in developed countries

International trade shifts climate impact from consuming to producing regions
Tue, 2016-09-06 15:31

Much of the influence on climate from air pollution in East Asia is driven by consumption in the developed countries of Western Europe and North America, according to research co-led by McGill University atmospheric scientist Yi Huang.

In a paper published online this week in Nature Geoscience, Huang and colleagues from China, the U.S. and U.K. report that international trade shifts the climate impacts of aerosols -- solid or liquid particles suspended in air -- from net consuming countries to net producing countries.

24-year study of spring emergence of Fowler’s Toads creates model for predicting climate-change effects

The ability to predict when toads come out of hibernation in southern Canada could provide valuable insights into the future effects of climate change on a range of animals and plants.

Climate change adaption: a global snapshot

Mon, 2015-11-09 11:53

A McGill University-led group of researchers (TRAC3) are looking at whether progress is being made in designing initiatives and policies to reduce vulnerability to climate change across countries. Their aim is to contribute new ways of monitoring the global climate adaptation process.

Harnessing the butterfly effect

New method could improve atmospheric forecasts over months, decades, and could explain “pause” in global warming
Tue, 2015-08-18 14:45

The atmosphere is so unstable that a butterfly flapping its wings can, famously, change the course of weather patterns. The celebrated “butterfly effect” also means that the reliability of weather forecasts drops sharply beyond 10 days.

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.
