As temperatures increase, so do rat populations

The warmer weather creeping into cities across America is cause for international concern, but there’s one group that loves it – rats. The impact of climate change on pests and disease is widely studied and cited as a reason to worry at the local level, but the rise in rat populations specifically is hard to quantify. While lab rats are studied ad nauseum, ‘wild’ urban rats and mostly taboo for the scientific community. Pest control workers and 311 hotline staff in cities like New York, however…

Conceptual model can explain how thunderstorm clouds bunch together

(University of Copenhagen) Understanding how the weather and climate change is one of the most important challenges in science today. A new theoretical study from associate professor, Jan Härter, at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, presents a new mechanism for the self-aggregation of storm clouds, a phenomenon, by which storm clouds bunch together in dense clusters. The researcher used methods from complexity science, and applied them to formerly established research in meteorology on the behavior of thunderstorm clouds.

Thunderbolt of lightning, gamma rays exciting

(University of Tokyo) University of Tokyo graduate student Yuuki Wada with colleagues from Japan discover a connection between lightning strikes and two kinds of gamma-ray phenomena in thunderclouds. The research suggests that in certain conditions, weak gamma-ray glows from thunderclouds may precede lightning bolts and their accompanying gamma-ray flashes.
