Helen McGregorGlobal warming trumps 1,800 years of cooling

Scientists find volcanoes can counteract the warming effects of greenhouse gases. 

Scientists will be able to make better forecasts of climate change as a result of findings from an international team of researchers who have been studying global sea surface temperature signals emitted over the past 2,000 years.

The ocean is a major component of the Earth’s climate system as it stores a lot of heat and is the long-term regulator of Earth’s climate.

ARC Research Fellow Dr Helen McGregor from UOW’s School of Earth and Environmental Sciences is the lead author of a paper by the Past Global Changes Ocean2K Working Group in Nature Geoscience.
