Global warming makes tropical soils leak carbon dioxide

Tropical forest soil warmed in experiments to levels consistent with end-of-century temperature projections released 55 percent more CO2 than control plots, exposing a previously underestimated source of greenhouse gas emissions, ...

Making comprehensive water resources modeling more accessible

The growing global population and continued economic development will likely cause a significant increase in water demand, especially in developing regions. At the same time, climate change is already having global, regional, ...

UK 'increasingly likely' to see +40C temperatures: study

Temperatures in Britain could exceed 40 degrees Celsius every three or four years by 2100 if greenhouse gas emissions continue unabated, research published Tuesday has found, as climate change increases the likelihood of ...

Much improved climate predictions from statistical mechanics

A study from the European Horizon 2020 TiPES project confirms that the large uncertainties of climate models used in the IPCC reports might be reduced considerably by the use of statistical mechanics. The technique, which ...

Why the Mediterranean is a climate change hotspot

Although global climate models vary in many ways, they agree on this: The Mediterranean region will be significantly drier in coming decades, potentially seeing 40 percent less precipitation during the winter rainy season.

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 ...

Grounded aircraft could make weather forecasts less reliable

Thanks to travel restrictions and plummeting customer demand, the number of flights in the first week of April 2020 was down 61% compared with the same period in 2019. The pandemic has emptied the skies of aircraft, but it's ...
