Study projects more intense rain during future hurricanes

Climate models by team of researchers at the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) at Stony Brook University predict that future tropical cyclones, or hurricanes, will feature more intense rain, with more rain ...

Scientists model Mars climate to understand habitability

A Southwest Research Institute scientist modeled the atmosphere of Mars to help determine that salty pockets of water present on the Red Planet are likely not habitable by life as we know it on Earth. A team that also included ...

Earth's atmosphere far dustier than previously believed

Dust is a key component of Earth's climate system. When it interacts with clouds, oceans and the sun's radiation, it has an overall impact on our planet's living systems, affecting everything from weather and rainfall to ...

Tracking Southern Hemisphere black carbon to Antarctic snow

Black carbon (BC) measurements in Antarctica are still scarce, but necessary to understand the particle's effect in our climate, says Luciano Marquetto, a Ph.D. student from the Polar and Climatic Center, Federal University ...

A new method to improve tropical cyclone intensity forecasts

In numerical weather forecasting research, how to improve short-term forecasts of tropical cyclone intensity is a challenging problem that has long plagued meteorologists and operational forecasters, despite that meteorologists ...

Rapid weather swings increase flu risk

New research from a team of Florida State University scientists shows that rapid weather variability as a result of climate change could increase the risk of a flu epidemic in some highly populated regions in the late 21st ...
