Study on impact of climate change on snowpack

An international team of scientists, including one from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, has found that up to 20 percent loss in the annual maximum amount of water contained in the Western United States' mountain snowpack ...

The cooling effect of agricultural irrigation

Previously, scientists have suggested that agricultural irrigation affects mean climate in several regions of the world. New evidence now shows that this cooling influence is even more pronounced when it comes to climate ...

Performance of the RegCM4 regional climate model over China

The RegCM series of climate models are widely used throughout the world and in China. Applications include paleo and present-day climate simulation, mechanistic analyses, studies of atmospheric chemistry and aerosols, and ...

Northeast US temperatures are decades ahead of global average

Results of a new study by researchers at the Northeast Climate Science Center (NECSC) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst suggest that temperatures across the northeastern United States will increase much faster than ...

Humans have caused climate change for 180 years: study

An international research project has found human activity has been causing global warming for almost two centuries, proving human-induced climate change is not just a 20th century phenomenon.

Melting ice sheet could release frozen Cold War-era waste

Camp Century, a U.S. military base built within the Greenland Ice Sheet in 1959, doubled as a top-secret site for testing the feasibility of deploying nuclear missiles from the Arctic during the Cold War. When the camp was ...

New radars for estimating rainfall installed at ARM sites

How do clouds and rainfall change over time? The answers are important to understanding the world's climate. New instruments are now available to help observe cloud and rainfall processes. State-of-the-art scanning dual-polarized ...
