Pioneering new research has given a new perspective on the crucial role that 'natural factors' play in global warming.
The study, by Dr Indrani Roy at the University of Exeter, suggests that the natural phenomena such as solar eleven-year cycles and strong volcanic explosions play important roles in recent climate change which has been 'underestimated'.
Studies - Rise - CO2 - Atmosphere - Driver
All existing studies focus on the rise in CO2 in the atmosphere as being the main driver of global temperature rises.
However, Dr Roy suggests that the role natural factors plays in climate change should be given more prominence. This study explores various possible areas where models miss important contributions due to these natural drivers.
Research - Frontiers
The research is published in leading journal Frontiers.
Although CO2 has risen significantly since 1998, global temperature did not show any significant increase. Models however suggested a significant rise.
