Research from the University of Utah shows that one shrub, the brittlebush, is adapting, and showing a remarkable ability to respond to increased temperature and aridity.
A new study uses satellite data over the Southern Hemisphere to understand global cloud composition during the industrial revolution. This research tackles one of the largest uncertainties in today's climate models -- the long-term effect of tiny atmospheric particles on climate change.
Analysis by assistant professor of environment and society and sociology at Brown found that press releases expressing opposition to climate action were twice as likely to receive news coverage as those supporting action.
The latest round of offshore wind farms to be built in the UK could reduce household energy bills by producing electricity very cheaply.
High-resolution analysis of wind speed across Saudi Arabia can help fast track the expansion of the Kingdom's emerging world-class wind energy industry.
Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University studied how the weather will change with global warming in Asian monsoon regions using a high-resolution climate simulation. The region is home to a large population, and the monsoons are a major driver of global water cycles. They explicitly simulated cloud formation and dissipation, and found significantly increased precipitation over the monsoon 'trough,' with tropical disturbances such as typhoons and concentrated water vapor playing key roles.
When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the North Atlantic Ocean, it gathered water vapor data on Tropical Storm Gonzalo as tropical storm warnings, a tropical storm watch, and hurricane watch were posted.
Ciais and colleagues obtained the first bottom-up global land carbon budget from the sum of regional estimates, combining inventories with lateral transfers from the trade of wood and food products and the export of dissolved carbon by rivers to the oceans. Carbon being moved away from ecosystems by lateral fluxes and emitted by fires and as reduced compounds is a large fraction of primary production inputs, implying a smaller CO2 emission from soil microbial decomposition.
