Global temperature study finds changing daily and seasonal variations

By on November 3, 2014


Scientists say that climate change can have a negative impact on seasons, according to a recent release from the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Institute. They predict rising temperatures could disrupt crops, birds and animal life cycles.

To determine climate change effect on temperature, the researchers studied over a billion temperature recordings ranging from 1926 to 2009. The researchers used several computers and a mathematical process to explain how temperature fluctuates from night to day and from winter to summer.  They found that as temperatures have risen, the differences between night to day and summer to winter temperatures have decreased.

Also, they discovered that temperature extremes were more likely to occur near the poles and away from oceans. The scientists added that in addition to disrupting animal and plant activity, climate change could also mean a rise in diseases.
