Climate study puts NZ in hot water "Swimmers in New Zealand waters would have enjoyed spa-like seawater temperatures of up to 30degC about 50 million years ago, according to a new study. Scientists says the study could also mean it is possible that future warming projections are being underestimated and the world could get a lot warmer than previously thought. The early Eocene, around 50 million years ago, has long been recognised as a time of pronounced global warming. But until now, the degree of warmth was uncertain. Now a group of scientists, led by palaeontologist Chris Hollis, of GNS Science, have determined that surface sea waters around New Zealand exceeded 30degC and water at the sea floor hovered around 20degC during what they believe is a 2-3 million year episode of greenhouse gas-induced global warming. 'These temperatures are at the extreme end of modern tropical water masses,' Dr Hollis said. In the study that will be published in the international scientific journal Geology next month, scientists have inferred warm climate conditions in New Zealand for this time period from a wide range of fossil evidence. They used geochemical methods for extracting sea temperatures from sedimentary rocks exposed in the bed of the Waipara River in North Canterbury. Tropical temperatures at this high latitude location presented a huge challenge for climate modellers, Dr Hollis said. Computer models said New Zealand sea temperatures during the Eocene did not exceed 20degC. 'Anomalously warm conditions have also been reported for early Eocene records from high latitude regions in the Northern Hemisphere,' Dr Hollis said. 'It now seems likely that some, as yet unknown, heat transport mechanism comes into play during times of extreme global warmth.' Co-author Matt Huber, of Purdue University in Indiana, said the new findings were at least 10 degrees warmer than scientists had previously thought for the time period. 'It suggests that existing temperature reconstructions for this period have been biased toward overly cold values. 'It also indicates that climate models tend to under-estimate temperatures during past climate warming episodes. It is possible that models are also under-estimating future warming projections.' Dr Hollis said further research into the causes of extreme climatic changes in New Zealand's geological past would benefit from New Zealand's recent decision to join the Integrated Ocean Drilling Programme - an international geoscience programme that operates a drilling ship that can recover sediment cores up to 2000m in length from beneath the ocean floor. The ship will be conducting a research leg off the coast of Canterbury in November 2009." 3news.co.nz 29Dec08 & Scientists gather in Wellington for conference on climate change "World authorities on the history of climate change are converging on Wellington for a conference on the greenhouse climate of the Paleogene period, 65 to 35 million years ago. The Paleogene was the last time that the Earth experienced greenhouse climate conditions and associated global warming on a scale comparable to projected future global warming. The conference will include a one day 'Greenhouse Earth Symposium' on January 14 in which leading international research scientists will showcase the role that research into the ancient greenhouse world of the Paleogene plays in advancing understanding of modern climate change. Presentations will be targeted toward a non-specialist audience with an interest in the science behind climate change and, specifically, greenhouse gas-induced global warming. A common theme to several presentations is the discovery that during times of extreme global warming sea temperatures in polar and temperate regions, such as New Zealand, soared to levels far higher than is predicted by climate models. The conference, 'Climatic and Biotic Events of the Paleogene', has drawn together 130 scientists and students from over 20 countries, and runs from January 12 to January 15. The conference will be preceded and followed by field excursions to examine New Zealand's unique record of climate change during Paleogene times in Canterbury, Marlborough, Otago, Westland, Hawkes Bay and even the Chatham Islands. It is hosted by GNS Science and the Greenhouse Earth Symposium is sponsored by Victoria University of Wellington through the Climate Change Research Institute, the Antarctic Research Centre and the School of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences" 4Jan09 & IPredict to offer trades on climate change 9Jan09 & Climate change conference looks to steamy Paleogene period "Climate experts today began a major conference in Wellington canvassing evidence of climate change before humans evolved. The conference at Te Papa, organised by GNS Science, is probing evidence of greenhouse effects in the climate of the Paleogene period, 65 to 35 million years ago. This is thought to be the most recent time the Earth experienced global warming on a scale similar to what is now being projected as a result of human activity. On Wednesday, leading scientists will stage a one-day symposium to showcase the role that research into the ancient greenhouse world can play in advancing understanding of modern climate change. Speakers will explore the role of greenhouse gases in driving Paleogene episodes of extreme global warming, the effects that warming had on biological systems, how natural feedback systems modulate climate and atmospheric greenhouse gas levels and the effectiveness of climate models in simulating greenhouse climate states. Conference organiser Chris Hollis said there was growing evidence that temperatures in high latitude places like New Zealand have been far higher than previously thought. In a paper on global temperature over the past 100 million years, Professor Peter Barrett, of Victoria University, said the 'greenhouse world' was 6degrees Celsius to 7 degrees Celsius warmer than today with only small ice sheets in the interior of Antarctica. Antarctic ice core records from relatively recent times showed a close association between atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and temperature over the past 800,000 years. 'It seems that from a geological perspective, without concerted intervention now, there is a credible risk of Earth's climate, by the end of the century, reverting to greenhouse world temperature, but with 'residual' polar ice sheets,' he said." 12Jan09
