Closing Critical Gap in Weather Forecasting

Scientists working on the next frontier of weather forecasting are hoping that weather conditions 3-to-4 weeks out will soon be as readily available as seven-day forecasts. Having this type of ... read more

Can Arctic 'Ice Management' Combat Climate Change?

According to a much-debated geo-engineering approach, both sea-ice retreat and global warming could be slowed by using millions of wind-powered pumps, drifting in the sea ice, to promote ice ... read more

First 'Lab in a Field' Experiment Reveals a Sunnier Side of Climate Change

Pioneering experiments using heated field plots to test the responses of crops to temperature have revealed an unexpected plus side of climate change for ... read more
