Frostquakes: A new earthquake risk in the north?

A new study has identified a potentially growing natural hazard in the north: frostquakes. With climate change contributing to many observed changes in weather extremes, such as heavy precipitation and cold waves, these seismic ...

Nitrogen runoff strategies complicated by climate change

As climate change progresses, rising temperatures may impact nitrogen runoff from land to lakes and streams more than projected increases in total and extreme precipitation for most of the continental United States, according ...

Mountains vulnerable to extreme rain from climate change

As the world warms, extreme weather events grow—and they also change. Researchers at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) found that climate change is shifting snowfall to rainfall ...
