Mean annual rainfall and maximum elevation were compiled from a variety of sources for islands in the tropical South Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans. Estimated annual ocean rainfall in the vicinity of each island was taken from a map of annual precipitation over the . Global annual temperature has increased at an average rate of degrees C per decade since and at an average rate of deg C since Over the past 30 years, Earth has warmed by about C or F Definite geographic variation Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer- warmest year on record.

Volume 8 of NOAA Atlas 14 Precipitation-Frequency Atlas of the United States was released in Data sets for MN were used in the analysis (vs. in TP) Average record length now over 50 years (more than double the record used in TP) Rainfall durations: 5 min to 60 days Rainfall frequency: 1 year to year eventsFile Size: 1MB. Thanks to the influence of the sea, Shetland doesn’t experience great extremes of temperature. On average, August is the warmest month, with a daily average maximum of 15°C. The highest temperatures officially recorded at Lerwick’s observatory – which is about 80m above sea level – are just over .

Annual and seasonal changes in precipitation over the United States. Changes are the average for present-day (–) minus the average for the first half of the last century (– for the contiguous United States, – for Alaska and Hawai‘i) divided by the average . The September precipitation total for the contiguous U.S. was inches, inch below average, ranking in the middle third of the year period of record.; The trough along the West Coast enhanced precipitation along the Northern Tier while the ridge of high pressure over the eastern contiguous U.S. was responsible for the very dry conditions across the South and Southeast.

Estimate of annual rainfall over the North Sea by S. Hedgecott Download PDF EPUB FB2

North Sea climate summary The North Sea lies on 7m above sea level The climate is warm and temperate in North Sea. There is significant rainfall throughout the year in North Sea.

Even the driest month still has a lot of rainfall. According to Köppen and Geiger, this climate is classified as Cfa. The average annual temperature is °C | Dataset Gallery To find datasets of interest, glance through the entries below, enter a search term to the left, or click terms under the filters to refine the list.

How much rain fell over the weekend. What was the temperature over the last few weeks. Tables of daily weather observations can answer these common questions.

Average Annual. US Dept of Commerce National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Weather Service Peachtree City, GA 4 Falcon Drive Peachtree City, GA Rainfall totals for the last 24 hours to 3 days – high resolution map Data Update Cycle: The 1-hr mosaic is updated every 5 min (approx).

All other mosaics are. ‘The maximum depth of the North Sea between France and England is scarcely one hundred meters. The average depth between Scotland and Norway is meters, with a maximum of meters just off. The relationship between sea surface temperature anomaly and total rainfall is impossible to see in these maps because it is difficult to pick out small changes in total rainfall on a regional scale.

A rainfall anomaly image, one that depicts a change in rainfall instead of total rainfall. In the subarctic and subantarctic zones, precipitation falling over the oceans is less than in the temperate zone.

For example, in the subarctic zone, least annual precipitation falls on the northern part of the Bering Sea— to mm. In the Southern hemisphere, along the Antarctic coast, minimum annual precipitation is.

Mainland PR Average Rainfall (inches) PR/USVI Average Rainfall (inches) and Percent of Normal Decade. Numbers in parenthesis are PF estimates at lower and upper bounds of the 90% confidence interval.

The probability that precipitation frequency estimates (for a given duration and) will be greater than the upper bound (or less than the lower bound) is 5%. Check to see how much rain has fallen in your region within the last week, month or year.

Rainfall, past 7 days. Rainfall, month to date. Based on existing projects, the scientists estimate the cost of building a so-called North Sea Enclosure Dyke at between €bn and €bn.

in sea level over the last 30 yr. Hunter et al. () found an average rate of sea level rise over yr of 6 mm yr21 at Port Arthur on the southeast tip of Tasmania, Australia. Zhen and Wu () estimated relative rates of sea level rise in China of mm yr21 in the north and about 2 mm yr21 in the south.

Mitrovica. Also, patterns of rainfall over the North Sea are significantly related to the direction and strength of the wind. Finally, it is shown that there is a significant linear relationship between climate station rainfall and the estimate over the nearest open water pixel, although the percent of Cited by: 4.

Increases in sea surface temperature have led to an increase in the amount of atmospheric water vapor over the oceans. 3 This water vapor feeds weather systems that produce precipitation, increasing the risk of heavy rain and snow (see the Heavy Precipitation and Tropical Cyclone Activity indicators).

There are nested sub-domains within this global model which contain data at higher spatial resolutions of 1/6 and 1/15 degree - the areas covered by these nested grids include theMediterranean, Alaska, Baltic, North Sea, Australia, Pacific Islands, North West Indian Ocean, Persian Gulf, Red Sea, US East and West Coasts, NW Atlantic Gulf of Mexico.

If the UK is to play its part in the fight against climate change, the North Sea oil and gas industry has between ten and 15 years left, writes Dr Richard Dixon.

By Richard Dixon Tuesday, 21st May. Over the past four decades, cod in the North Sea has been a valuable fishery, yielding an average oftonnes per year. Nowadays, the catch is mainly constituted of fish that are younger Cited by: State-wide averages of annual rainfall plus snowfall range from a high of inches ( millimetres) in Hawaii to a low of inches ( millimetres) in Nevada.
