Irreversible hotter and drier climate over inner East Asia

(Utah State University) Researchers warn that heatwaves and concurrent droughts of Mongolia’s semi-arid plateau have increased significantly during the past two decades, with troubling implications for the future. The change also has ramifications for atmospheric conditions across the Northern Hemisphere.

NASA Uses Supercomputers and AI to Count Earth’s Trees From Space For the First Time

To get a sense of how much carbon the Earth can store, and how it changes over time, scientists would need to count a bewildering number of trees, and track their growth over time. Incredibly, the folks at NASA are now using supercomputers to do precisely that—via top-down imaging from space. Scientists from NASA’s Goddard […]

Indonesian wildfires a ‘fixable problem’

(University of Exeter) Indonesian wildfires that cause widespread air pollution and vast carbon emissions are a “fixable problem”, according to the leader of a project set up to help tackle the issue.

Community helps scientists evaluate smoke forecasts

Across the Wasatch Front, both researchers and community members maintain enough air quality sensors to provide a high-resolution picture of how the smoke moved through the valley — perfect for testing and refining smoke forecast models.

Accelerated global warming and stadial cooling events: IPCC oversights regarding future climate trends

 by Andrew Glikson The linear nature of global warming projections by the IPCC (2014) Assessment Report (AR5) (Figure 1) appears to take little account of stadial cooling events, such as have followed peak temperature rises in previous interglacial stages. The…

Ancient Maya City Built Sophisticated Water Filtration System With Materials We Still Use Today

Archaeologists working at the site of the ancient Maya city of Tikal in northern Guatemala have found a sophisticated water filtration system that would have proven to be millennia ahead of its time. Built at the end of a channel from the Corriental reservoir, a critical source of drinking water for the northern Maya, the […]
