By compiling meteorological wind data – derived from several sources – Cornell University and the Technical University of Denmark scientists have assembled the first full observational wind atlas of the Great Lakes.

Cornell's Paula Doubrawa stands atop a wind turbine at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's Wind Technology Center in Colorado in August, where she was conducting research.

As mountain pine beetles and other insects chew their way through Western forests, forest fires might not seem far behind. Lands covered by dead trees appear ready to burst into flame

Deeply charred trees were killed by insects in the decade prior to the B&B Complex Fire, which burned 90,000 acres in 2003. Another fire, the Warm Springs Lightning Complex, burns on the northern horizon. Although the insect damage may not increase wildfire likelihood, compound impacts are likely where the two disturbances overlap. (Photo by Garrett Meigs)

August 26, 2015 | While many people take advantage of the sunshine this time of year, NCAR scientist Rita Roberts seeks out storms. Roberts is leading an experiment this summer along the Front Range to improve short-term forecasts of heavy rainfall and flash floods, particularly over complex terrain.

October 1, 2015 | It seems like a simple question: When a wet cloud mixes with dry air, do the cloud's droplets evaporate completely one by one? Or do all the droplets shrink simultaneously, each giving up a tiny bit of its water at the same time?

September 9, 2015 | One of the biggest mysteries about hurricanes has to do with their very beginnings. Certain clusters of thunderstorms over warm ocean waters gradually spin up into tropical storms and hurricanes while others simply dissipate—but scientists aren’t sure why.
