The team, led by Environment Canada climatologist Nathan Gillett, says greenhouse gases pumped into the atmosphere by cars, factories and human activities are a key factor fuelling the change.
Gillett and his colleagues say the variations seen on the ground are "consistent" with the theories and models, and do not rule out human impacts on the climate system. "It's true trends are mixed in Antarctic and we see that in our study," Gillett told a media briefing.
He noted however, that there has been "overall warming" in the West Antarctic ice sheet over the past 50 years, and the disintegration of the enormous Larsen B Ice shelf in 2002 points to the impact of rising temperatures on coastal Antarctica.
Gillett and his colleagues in England, Japan and the U.S. disentangled the factors driving up temperatures and say they see a clear human signature.
"The main message in the paper is that we are able for the first time to directly attribute warming in both the Arctic and the Antarctic to human influences on climate," says Gillett, who joined Environment Canada's climate modelling team in Victoria this fall.
He said in an interview that he expects the work to be generally accepted though "some skeptics will probably disagree."
Gillett says the team got around the problem by focusing on areas where weather stations have been collecting data for decades.

The analysis suggests that "with increasing sea surface temperatures, we can expect more intense hurricanes," reports co-author Nathan Gillett of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia , Norwich, United Kingdom.

"It is another piece of the puzzle that climate change is happening and we are influencing it," said Nathan Gillet, a climate researcher at the University of East Anglia.
Human emissions of gases such as methane and carbon dioxide that trap heat in the atmosphere are widely blamed for changes in the climate.Scientists say average global temperatures will rise by 2 to 6 degrees Celsius (4 to 11 Fahrenheit) by the end of the century, causing droughts, floods and violent storms.
Warmer air can hold more water vapor.
"It has been predicted for a long time that humidity would increase with greenhouse gas increases," said Gillet, who led the study.
"But this is the first study that shows a significant human impact on surface humidity," he said in a telephone interview.
The British team collected data from weather stations, buoys and ships across the world to measure the effect of rising greenhouse gases on humidity between 1973 and 1999.
A computer simulation showed that natural events such as volcanoes and variations in the sun's brightness could not alone have produced the increase in humidity, and pointed to greenhouse gases generated by humans, Gillet said.
"It is getting moister at the surface, so humidity is increasing," Gillet said."You only see that in the model with the human effect."
The findings are especially important for tropical regions, which will see the largest increase in humidity because they are warm already, he said.
The research also provides a better understanding of potential changes in the earth's water cycle, which could result in floods and droughts that have an even bigger impact on people than rising temperatures, he added.

Global warming ends white Christmas - Yahoo! News UK [cached]
The environmental campaign group spokesman was speaking as Dr Nathan Gillett, a lecturer in climate change at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, made similar predictions in an interview with his local newspaper.
"White winters are already rare in Norwich.There are less than one in 20.I think there is a chance we will never see a white Christmas again," Dr Gillett told the Norwich Evening News.
"By the middle of the century I don't think we are going to have any more white Christmases because of global warming.
He said: "In Norfolk milder winters mean that pests which normally got killed by the cold weather won't get killed so that could be bad news for farmers that is not the worst impact of climate change.
