NASA sees developing tropical cyclone in Bay of Bengal
A tropical low pressure area known as System 92B has been organizing in the Northern Indian Ocean's Bay of Bengal and NASA's TRMM satellite has shown strong thunderstorms and heavy rainfall in the developing ...
NASA image: Tapah downgrades to a depression
Tapah was downgraded from a tropical storm to a tropical depression and is located 239 nautical miles southeast of Iwo To.
A 5.3-million-year record of sea level and temperature
An international team of scientists has discovered new relationships between deep-sea temperature and ice-volume changes to provide crucial new information about how the ice ages came about.
No 'permanent El Nino,' scientists say—and the tropics may get even hotter
(Phys.org) —New research by Yale University scientists challenges a long-standing paradigm for temperature variability in the Pacific Ocean, casting doubt on the existence of a past period of "permanent" ...
Warm North Atlantic Ocean promotes extreme winters in US and Europe
The extreme cold weather observed across Europe and the east coast of the US in recent winters could be partly down to natural, long-term variations in sea surface temperatures, according to a new study published today.
Global warming may be causing surge in numbers of pink salmon
Tropical Cyclone Hellen makes landfall in Madagascar
Tropical Cyclone Hellen made landfall in west central Madagascar as NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead capturing temperature data on its towering thunderstorms.
NASA sees ex-Tropical Cyclone Gillian's remnants persist
NASA's TRMM satellite continues to follow the remnants of former Tropical Cyclone Gillian as it moved from the Southern Pacific Ocean into the Southern Indian Ocean where it appears to be re-organizing.
Climatologists offer explanation for widening of tropical belt
(Phys.org) —Recent studies have shown that the Earth's tropical belt—demarcated, roughly, by the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn—has progressively expanded since at least the late 1970s. Several explanations ...
Would seasonal forecasting enable us to cope with our changing weather?
We've experienced an exceptionally wet and windy winter, and while our weather forecasters are far better at telling us what to expect in the next two or three days, they still struggle with long range seasonal forecasting.
Changing climate may leave some species homeless
As oceans warm some species may be forced to find new habitats or face extinction, scientists say.
Researchers suggest controversial approach to forecasting El Nino
Is global warming hiding underwater?
Satellite observations of global sea-surface temperature show that a 30-year upward trend has slowed down within the last 15 years. Climate scientists say this is not the end of global warming, but the result ...
NASA satellite catches Australia's newborn Tropical Storm Edna and stubborn Fletcher
Northeastern Australia has been watching two tropical low pressure areas over the last several days, and NASA's Aqua satellite captured both in one infrared image. Tropical Storm Edna developed on February ...
