Why Europe's climate faces a stormy future

(PhysOrg.com) -- Europe is likely to be hit by more violent winter storms in the future. Now a new study into the effects of climate change has found out why.

NRL updates tropical cyclone weather predicting model

Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) think their weather prediction model, Coupled Ocean/Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System for Tropical Cyclones (COAMPS-TC), tracked 2017's Gulf of Mexico storms better ...

The mathematics of weather prediction

Dutifully processing 2.8 quadrillion mathematical calculations per second around the clock, these computers — each about the size of a school bus — are the nucleus of weather and climate forecasting in the United States ...

Rising temperatures threaten a food crisis

A recent study reports that the geographical range of some agricultural crops -- such as corn and beans -- may be greatly reduced if temperatures continue to rise. While some farmers may be able to readjust what they grow, ...

NASA sites across US vulnerable to climate change

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has been at the forefront of climate science, launching satellites that take the pulse of Earth's land, oceans and atmospheric systems, gathering data on climate, weather ...

Mesoscale ocean eddies impact weather, study shows

Not only large-scale ocean currents impact weather but also relatively small eddies, as a new study by scientists at ETH Zurich reveals. The researchers therefore recommend to account for these eddies in weather prediction ...
