Although it is not yet clear how the Alaskan dust may affect the global climate system, new research from the University of Leeds and the National Centre for Atmospheric Science suggests that the effect is greater than previously believed.
According to new calculations from the University of Copenhagen, important ocean currents that redistribute heat, cold, and precipitation between the tropics and northernmost parts of the Atlantic region will stop around 2060.
El Niño is a complex climate phenomenon that occurs irregularly in the tropical Pacific Ocean. It is characterized by a warming of the sea surface temperature in the eastern and central equatorial Pacific, which can have significant impacts on weather patterns around the world.
June 2023 was the hottest June ever recorded, according to NASA’s global temperature analysis. This analysis is based on data collected from weather stations, research stations, ships, and ocean buoys. Scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York analyze this data to account for uncertainties and maintain consistent methods for calculating global…
The biggest waterfall in the world is underwater. It’s located in the Denmark Strait between Iceland and Greenland. It moves three million cubic meters per second, enough to shape global weather.
Massive wildfires in Canada have destroyed millions of hectares of forest, displacing over 100,000 people and impacting air quality for millions in North America. The ecological disaster’s effects have even been observed in the atmosphere over Germany.
A new research study published in the journal Ophthalmic Epidemiology shows that American adults aged 65 or older who live in warmer regions are more likely to have serious vision problems compared to those living in cooler areas.
The increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration is a major factor in global warming, and about one fifth of atmospheric CO2 comes from soil sources.
An article in GCB Bioenergy describes why bamboo may be an attractive resource in efforts to develop environmentally friendly renewable energy to replace fossil fuels.
According to a recent study in the Geophysical Research Letters journal, the plume released by the 2022 eruption of the Hunga Volcano resulted in the most lightning flashes ever observed on Earth, surpassing any previously recorded storm. Sonja Behnke, of Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Electromagnetic Sciences and Cognitive Space Applications group, noted, “The eruption of…
