Analyses show that the five warmest years on record all have taken place since 2010

Earth's long-term warming trend continued in 2017, government scientists reported on Thursday, with average surface temperatures only slightly below the record heat of the previous year.

Nainital: The Uttarakhand high court on Wednesday asked the state government to file its reply on the formation of a lake in Gaumukh, due to landslides in October and December, by February 16.

2017 was the second-hottest year on record according to Nasa data, and was the hottest year without the short-term warming influence of an El Niño event:

LOS ANGELES: NASA has developed a new forecasting tool that can predict which cities will be affected as different portions of ice sheets melt due to global warming

A geothermal heat source called mantle plume lies deep below Antarctica's Marie Byrd Land, explaining some of the melting that creates lakes and rivers under the ice sheet, a NASA study has found.

NASA's Cassini spacecraft continues to yield surprising discoveries, more than a month after it burned up on its mission-ending dive into Saturn. New data from the probe suggest that Saturn's majestic rings are showering tiny dust particles into the planet's upper atmosphere, where they form a complicated and unexpected chemical mix.

Diwali, this year, is 11 days earlier than last year and Delhi might see a little respite since temperatures have, as of yet, not dipped as much as they had last year.

When the Moon’s shadow races across the continental United States on 21 August, researchers will be waiting — in planes, on mountaintops and at other carefully chosen vantage points along the roughly 110-kilometre-wide path of totality. Thanks to the sheer number of observers, solar physicists hope to learn more from this latest total solar eclipse than from any previous such event, and to use that knowledge to develop tools for next time.

With the first six months of 2017 in the books, average global surface temperatures so far this year are 0.94°C above the 1950–1980 average, according to NASA.
