Rising ocean temperature could impact India's food production 13.9.2016 DNA: Urban Tales
Food security of India and several other major key food producing countries are threatened by changing weather patterns due to warming of the oceans, which may well be the "greatest" hidden challenge for the present generation, according to a study. Changes in ocean-focused atmospheric patterns have direct implications on food production as the yield is impacted. "The consequences for society of changing weather patterns due to the warming of the oceans are considerable," said the report titled "Explaining ocean warming: causes, scale, effects and consequences". The report released by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) said they involve a mix of food and water factors, and the evolution of various types of risk. Noting that there have already been changes to precipitation patterns in a number of areas of the planet resulting from large-scale atmospheric teleconnections with ocean warming, the report said there can be increased rainfall in some mid-latitude and monsoon areas and ...

Climate change could lead to more violent typhoons for China, Japan: study 6.9.2016 DNA: Mumbai
China, Taiwan, Japan and the Koreas will experience more violent typhoons under climate change, said researchers today, presenting evidence for a recent rise in storm intensity caused by ocean warming. Scientists have struggled to identify changes in the intensity and frequency of typhoons over the northwest Pacific ocean -- never mind trying to pinpoint a role for global warming. Contradictory trends emerge from records such as the Joint Typhoon Warning Center​ and the Japan Meteorological Agency -- the two most widely-used data sets in typhoon research, according to the US-based study authors Wei Mei and Shang-Ping Xie. They have now corrected the available data for differences in methodology and discovered a single, clear trend. "Over the past 37 years, typhoons that strike east and southeast Asia have intensified by 12-15 percent," they wrote in the journal Nature Geoscience. And the data showed this intensification, in turn, was linked to ocean surface warming -- possibly caused by climate change, ...

La Nina: China likely to be hit by 5-6 typhoons next month 25.8.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
China is set to be hit by at least five or six typhoons next month due to the La Nina phenomenon, bringing storms on land and sea, authorities said on Thursday. The National Marine Environmental Forecasting Centre (NMEFC) said that up to six typhoons are expected to hit China next month, more than in previous years. Three or four will affect coastal areas. Last week, China upgraded its warning for ocean waves triggered by Typhoon Dianmu to a yellow alert from blue on a four-colour warning system. The typhoon dumped heavy rainfall across the Leizhou peninsula in southeastern Guangdong Province, leaving entire villages submerged in places.  Affected by global warming and La Nina, China's coastal sea level is higher than the same period in recent years. The NMEFC called on coastal departments to follow forecasts and be prepared for ocean disasters. La Nina is an ocean atmosphere phenomenon characterised by low sea temperatures across the equatorial eastern central Pacific. It often occurs after a strong El ...

BRICS members discuss joint task force 22.8.2016 deccanherald.com
The two-day BRICS ministers' meeting on disaster management began on Monday in Udaipur. Topics under discussion at the meet are forecasting and early warning on floods and extreme weather events and highlights of recent scientific and technical developments. The other areas of discussion comprise lessons for ensuring last mile connectivity, community level action on early warning and emerging disaster risks as a result of climate change. Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju, who is presiding over the meeting, said BRICS countries were striving to set up a joint task force on disaster management as a permanent forum for regular dialogue and mutual support. "India is a disaster-prone land and we have one of the largest and efficient disaster response forces in the world. China is an expert in handling earthquake situations, while Russia leads in managing wildfire incidents.
