Mountains and winds confound particle distribution

Untangling complex relationships requires understanding and facts. Applying both, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory led research finding the true culprits instigating layers of tiny atmospheric particles above California's ...

More haste, less waste

Like a sleek, modern sports car, a climate model has a complex computer engine running underneath. As the demand grows for the models to produce faster simulations with more details, the computer engine takes up more time ...

Causes of California drought linked to climate change

The atmospheric conditions associated with the unprecedented drought currently afflicting California are "very likely" linked to human-caused climate change, Stanford scientists say.

Asian monsoon much older than previously thought

The Asian monsoon already existed 40 million years ago during a period of high atmospheric carbon dioxide and warmer temperatures, reports an international research team led by a University of Arizona geoscientist.

Researchers reconstruct Pacific storm track in climate model

(Phys.org) —The first study that combines different scales—cloud-sized and earth-sized—in one model to simulate the effects of Asian pollution on the Pacific storm track shows that Asian pollution can influence weather ...
