Jonathan and Huanping published a paper along with coauthors Erich Osterberg and Justin Mankin in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.The study combines historical observations with model data from the CESM1 large ensemble to investigate the relationship between anthropogenic emissions and extreme precipitation in the mid-Atlantic. The annual mean surface air temperature for the Arctic land areas was the second highest in the 120-year record, trailing only 2016, at 3.1°F (1.7°C) above the 1981–2010 average.

(2011), Awareness of both type 1 and 2 errors in climate science and assessment This was 2.5 ppm greater than 2018 amounts and was the highest in the modern 61-year measurement record and in ice core records dating back as far as 800,000 years. In the Bering Sea, increasing ocean temperatures and reduced sea ice—which was by far the lowest on record there for the second consecutive winter—are leading to shifts in fish distributions within some of the most valuable fisheries in the world. Sea surface temperatures were near-record high. (2006), Declining Mountain Snowpack in Western North America Ocean heat content was also record high in the deeper layer beneath, from 700 to 2000 m depth. | Terms of Use | (2016), Extreme North America winter storm season of 2013/14: Roles of radiative forcing and the global warming hiatus [in “Explaining Extreme Events of 2014 from a Climate Perspective”] A new State of the Climate report confirmed that 2019 was among the three warmest years in records dating to the mid-1800s with a short-term warming, but weak, El Niño influence early in the year. In the Antarctic, 2019 was the second warmest year for the continent as a whole since the start of the reanalysis record in 1979, surpassing 2018, which is now the third warmest year, and behind only 1980. As they do each year, the major greenhouse gas concentrations, including carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), methane and nitrousoxide, rose to new record high values during 2019. (2011), A Reassessment of U.S. Annual global surface temperatures were 0.79°–1.00°F (0.44°–0.56°C above the 1981–2010 average, depending upon the dataset used.
