Jan. 3, 2017 — Scientists have found that extreme precipitation events in California should become more frequent as the Earth's climate warms over this century. The researchers developed a new technique that ... read more

For Critical Marine Low Clouds, a Research and Observation Plan

Dec. 22, 2016 — Marine low clouds hover in the lowest couple of kilometers above the world’s oceans. They produce little but drizzle, and could never match their deeper mid-continent cousin clouds for dramatic ... read more

Dec. 20, 2016 — Scientists have witnessed the birth of atmospheric ice clouds, creating ice cloud crystals in the laboratory and then taking images of the process through a microscope, essentially documenting the ... read more

Dec. 19, 2016 — A jet stream within the Earth's molten iron core has been discovered by scientists using the latest satellite data that helps create an 'X-ray' view of the ... read more

Dec. 14, 2016 — Far above Earth's surface is a sea of particles that have been split into positive and negative ions by the suns harsh ultraviolet radiation called the ionosphere -- this is Earth's ... read more

Dec. 14, 2016 — A team has found the mechanism behind the sudden onset of a 'natural thermostat' in Earth's upper atmosphere that dramatically cools the air after it has been heated by violent solar ... read more

Earth's Magnetic Fields Could Track Ocean Heat, Study Proposes

Dec. 13, 2016 — As Earth warms, much of the extra heat is stored in the planet's ocean. Monitoring the magnitude of that heat content is difficult, but a surprising feature of the tides could help. Scientists ... read more

Mitigating the Risk of Geoengineering

Dec. 12, 2016 — The planet is warming at an unprecedented rate and reducing emissions of greenhouse gasses alone is not enough to remove the risk, say ... read more

Dec. 12, 2016 — An international team of researchers has concluded that the Antarctic Ice Sheet actually plays a major role in regional and global climate variability -- a discovery that may also help explain why ... read more

Dec. 9, 2016 — In the atmosphere, feldspar particles act as ice nuclei that make ice crystals grow in clouds and enable precipitation. The reason was found with the help of electron microscopy observations and ... read more

Dec. 7, 2016 — Scientists have discovered the existence of hot atomic hydrogen (H) atoms in an upper layer of Earth's atmosphere known as the thermosphere. This finding significantly changes current ... read more
