Weather, Sea Rise+

     Below are articles about impacts from (and on) Weather, Sea Level Rise, and Floods.  Weather has 7 sub-groups.  Plans and measures to deal with sea level rise are a sub-group under Adaptation.  Information about how fast seas have risen, are rising, and will rise is found on the Water page.  A few files here are duplicated on other pages.

     Month and year follow each article's name.  PDF files are so marked, after month and date, some with authors noted.  Within sections, more recent files appear above older files.

                 PRE-INDUSTRIAL                                                 NOW
     As the simple diagrams show, the temperature-gradient between the Arctic and the warmer latitudes has lessened. The strength of the jet stream is influenced by the size of the temperature gradient.  Thus, warming the Arctic leads to a weakening of the jet stream (from 13.3 to 12.0 m/s over 30 years in the graph below) and a greater tendency to meander as it slows down. As this meandering develops, troughs may be expected to extend further southwards and ridges to push further northwards.  However, recent research suggests a greater northwards component to this behavior; the Polar jet stream has moved northwards (see turquoise dotted line in graph further below).

Tornados to Increase with Warming 1207 - esp. in FL & southern Plains in spring, then the whole eastern US in summer


Weather - Future: Northeast

     Weather changes in other parts of the US (and the world) will be broadly similar to those projected for the Northeast.  By 2100, places in the Northeast would get 50-60 more days over 90°F and 3-20 more days 100°F.  A larger fraction of rain would come in intense events (days with more than 2 inches would rise 40-50%).  1-3 month droughts would double, 3-6 month droughts triple, and droughts longer than 6 months quadruple.  Winter days with snow on the ground would fall to a quarter to half as many as now.

Migrating Climates in the Northeast & Their Impacts - UCS 0707 - PDF, 160 pages

The UCS maps of migrating climates show how the climate in states now will feel like states further south (& a little west) in mid-century, and much further late this century.  Averaged across all 15 states, in the high emissions case, it's like moving 330 miles SSW for 2040-69 and 660 miles SSW for 2070-99.
      For example, by the end of the century, New Hampshire would feel like the Piedmont today in North Carolina and Virginia, unless we cut carbon emissions deeply.  Rhode Island's climate would be like Savannah's.  Indiana's climate would resemble today's Virginia in winter and Oklahoma in summer.  Minnesota's summer climate would resemble the Kansas climate of today.  By 2100, absent steep carbon emission cuts, western Pennsylvania's climate would feel like Alabama's today.
      See www.climatechoices.org/ne/impacts_ne/climates.html for maps of how climate would make for 9 Northeast states.  Similarly, see www.ucsusa.org/greatlakes/glimpactmigrating.html for maps of how climate would make for 9 Great Lakes states.

Sea Level to Rise 2.3 or 3.9 Meters per °C Warming - Levermann 0613 - PDF
     CAVEAT: Paleoclimate studies indicate 4-24 meters sea level rise long-term per 1°C.  This indicates that Antarctic melting has been much more sensitive to temperature than models suggest.  In the past 2 million years, that’s because there was more ice to melt.
     See, for example, "
Climate Sensitivity, Sea Level & Atmospheric CO2“ - Hansen 0913 on Overviews page for sea level and Deep Ocean Temperatures (3rd graph on Home page, also on Overviews page & 2nd graph on Heat page).  For a 2nd example, see Tripati (2009) on Heat page: 3-6°C warmer and seas 25-40 meters higher (7-8 meters per °C) - for essentially today's CO2 levels.  For a 3rd example, connect 120-meter sea level rise since the last galcial maximum (see graph above) to warming since then from Vostok ice core data, which show 8-10°C warming over that time span (at the polar surface, but ~ 3 to 5°C warming for the deep ocean. (This comes from Hansen's book chapter in Springer, 2012, which has part 3 of 3-part graph (part 1 is on Home page and parts 1-2 on Overviews page)).

                         On left, thru 2,000 years.                               On right, includes much longer time span.

A is for sea water expansion.  B is for mountain (non-polar) glaciers.  C is for Greenland.  D is for Antarctica.  E is for Total.  Note that paleoclimate studies (indirect observations) have found much higher sea level rise per °C warming than Levermann's models do.  The difference stems from Antarctica.

     Also, like Levermann's, much published research leaves unclear if warming is surface or the entire ocean.  Stated differently, they assume than air at the land and sea surface warms as fast as the water in the ocean.  Since 1960, land and sea surfaces have warmed 25 (recently) to 50 times (not as recently) as fast the whole ocean.
