I just got back today from making a poster presentation at a workshop in
Sparks, Nevada, cosponsored by the National Weather Service - Climate
Prediction Center (CPC) and the Desert Research Institute (DRI).
While at the workshop, I learned that the 2002-2003 El Nino had the
warmest El Nino temperatures of record, that peaked far from land in open
Regarding the topic of glaciers, it is important to keep in mind that
increasing humidity increases snow & ice melt rates (snowmelt physics is
discussed in my 22 Oct 2003 paper on Earlier Seasonal Snowmelt Runoff in
the Upper Midwest & Great Plains Regions.
After presenting my paper at the CPC / DRI Workshop, I stopped at the
National Monument sites at Fossil Butte (WY) and Dinosaur (CO). Very
rewarding experiences for me.
I think learning about past warm climates can be helpful in the future as
global warming continues (indefinitely).
