Role of Amazon as carbon sink declines: Nature study

20. julij 2021, WMO, Novice, Voda

Amazonia hosts the Earth?s largest tropical forests and has been shown to be an important carbon sink. This carbon sink seems to be in decline, however, as a result of factors such as deforestation and climate change, according to a new paper published in Nature. The study was led by Lucia Gatti, Group Leader, Brazil?s National Institute of Space Research /Center of Earth System Science and a member of the steering committee for the Integrated Global Greenhouse Gas Information System spearheaded by WMO. The authors investigated Amazonia?s carbon budget and the main drivers responsible...

Climate characteristics and factors behind record-heavy rain in Japan in August 2021 - Japan Meteorological Agency

24.9.2021, WMO

In mid-August 2021, areas from western to eastern Japan experienced record-heavy rain.?The conditions observed are mainly attributed to the following:?- Unusually for mid-summer in eastern and western Japan, like atmospheric flow in the latter half of the early-summer rainy season, known as the Baiu, a stationary front was strengthened by a significant north-south gradient of temperature in the lower troposphere between the Okhotsk High to north of Japan and the southward shifted North Pacific Subtropical High (NPSH) expanding to the south of Japan. A continuous confluence of water...

Weather-related disasters increase over past 50 years, causing more damage but fewer deaths

31.8.2021, WMO

A disaster related to a weather, climate or water hazard occurred every day on average over the past 50 years ? killing 115 people and causing US$ 202 million in losses daily, according to a comprehensive new report from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
The number of disasters has increased by a factor of five over the 50-year period, driven by climate change, more extreme weather and improved reporting. But, thanks to improved early warnings and disaster management, the number of deaths decreased almost three-fold.
According to the WMO Atlas of Mortality and Economic Losses...

Atlas of Mortality and Economic Losses from Weather, Climate and Water Extremes (1970-2019).

31.8.2021, WMO

WMO will release its Atlas of Mortality and Economic Losses from Weather, Climate and Water Extremes (1970-2019) on 1 September 2021.
The Atlas is WMO?s most exhaustive compilation to date of fatalities and economic costs from natural hazards. It provides comprehensive details of recorded disasters and their impacts, both at global and regional level. It gives statistics for the entire 50 year period, as well as a decadal breakdown which shows the evolution of disasters in our changing climate.
The Atlas is a multi-agency collaboration, with contributions from many partners including...

New report shows impacts of climate change and extreme weather in Latin America and Caribbean
