(George Mason University) Timothy DelSole, Professor, Atmospheric, Oceanic and Earth Sciences, and Michael K. Tippett, Associate Professor of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics at Columbia University, are working to improve climate predictions by advancing the understanding of processes that influence the ocean and atmosphere on decadal time scales.
Arctic sea ice is not as unstable as alarmists like to claim it is. This year saw the Arctic approaching a new record low minimum, and the alarmists began setting off the alarms with abandon. Yet the melt stabilized in…
Researchers have identified a new type of ‘landfalling drought’ that originates over the ocean before traveling onto land, and which can cause larger, drier conditions than other droughts.
Upcoming 5G wireless networks that will provide faster cell phone service may lead to inaccurate weather forecasts, according to a new study on a controversial issue that has created anxiety among meteorologists.
(Penn State) Typically, computer models of climate become more and more complex as researchers strive to capture more details of our Earth’s system, but according to a team of Penn State researchers, to assess risks, less complex models, with their ability to better sample uncertainties, may be a better choice.
In a new climate modeling study that looked at the impacts of accelerated ice melt from the Antarctic Ice Sheet (AIS) on future climate, a team of climate scientists reports that future ice-sheet melt is expected to have significant effects on global climate.
Researchers have predicted how and where the Asian giant hornet, an invasive newcomer to the Pacific Northwest, popularly dubbed the ‘murder hornet,’ could spread and find ideal habitat, both in the United States and globally.
A research team has developed a new theory that can predict the movement of an animal’s sensory organs — such as eyes, ears and nose — while searching for something vital to its life.
