Future Subtropical Warming Accelerates Tropical Climate Change

In response to future fossil fuel burning, climate computer models simulate a pronounced warming in the tropical oceans. This warming can influence the El Niño phenomenon and shift weather and ... read more

Cracks in Arctic Sea Ice Turn Low Clouds on and Off

The prevailing view has been that more leads are associated with more low-level clouds during winter. But an atmospheric scientists noticed something strange in their study of these leads: when lead ... read more

Evolving Landscape Added Fuel to Gobi Desert's High-Speed Winds

A new study finds that the dark, rocky landscape of the Hami basin in the Gobi Desert helped to make it one of the windiest places in ... read more

Antarctic Waters: Warmer With More Acidity and Less Oxygen

The increased freshwater from melting Antarctic ice sheets plus increased wind has reduced the amount of oxygen in the Southern Ocean and made it more acidic and warmer, according to new ... read more

Climate Change Impacted Hurricane Florence's Precipitation and Size

A new modeling framework showed that Hurricane Florence produced more extreme rainfall and was spatially larger due to human-induced climate ... read more

Scientists Link La Niña Climate Cycle to Increased Diarrhea

A study finds that spikes in cases of life-threatening diarrhea in young children are associated with La Niña climate conditions. The findings could provide the basis for an early-warning system ... read more

Preparing for Extreme Sea Levels Depends on Location, Time

Using historical data from tide gauges that line US coasts, researchers created an extreme sea level indicator that identifies how much of a role different major weather and ocean forces have played ... read more

In Ancient Scottish Tree Rings, a Cautionary Tale on Climate, Politics and Survival

Using old tree rings and archival documents, historians and climate scientists have detailed an extreme cold period in Scotland in the 1690s that caused immense suffering. It may have lessons for ... read more

Applying Physics Principle Yields Grim Prediction on Hurricane Destruction in Era of Global Warming

Global warming could well lead to hurricanes more powerful than meteorologists currently forecast. A physicist noticed that one of the principles of physics -- phase transition -- did not appear in ... read more

JAXA and NASA satellite observations show where killer electrons are generated in the Van Allen radiation belts surrounding ... read more

Climate Cycles and Insect Pests Drive Migration Timing of Reindeer's North American Cousin

Biologists have discovered two unexpected drivers for migration timing that dispute long-held assumptions and provide insight into potential future effects of climate change on caribou. First, the ... read more

Mountain Goats' Air Conditioning Is Failing, Study Says

A new study says Glacier National Park's iconic mountain goats are in dire need of 'air ... read more

Community Characteristics Shape Climate Change Discussions After Extreme Weather

Political affiliations, the presence of local environmental organizations and prior local media coverage of climate change play a role in how a community reacts to an extreme weather event, according ... read more

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

Damaging Rains from Hurricanes More Intense After Winds Begin to Subside

Howling wind drives torrential rain sideways as tall, slender palms bow and tree limbs snap. A hurricane approaches, its gale-force winds wreaking havoc as it nears the coast. Storm surges combine ... read more

Atmospheric River Storms Create $1 Billion-a-Year Flood Damage

Researchers found that flooding has caused nearly $51 billion in damages to western states in the last 40 years. More than 84 percent of these damages were caused by atmospheric rivers (ARs), long ... read more

Outlook for the Polar Regions in a 2-Degrees-Warmer World

With 2019 on pace as one of the warmest years on record, a major new study reveals how rapidly the Arctic is warming and examines global consequences of continued polar warming. The study reports ... read more

A Missing Link in Haze Formation

Hazy days don't just block the view; they mean the air contains particulate matter that can compromise human health. Chemists have now discovered a way that alcohols can balance out the ... read more
