Future storms will drop higher volumes of rain -- image of mesoscale convective system
November 20, 2017
Storm clusters known as mesoscale convective systems will pose a much greater flooding risk later this century in a warming climate.
Scientists find benefits to climate observing system: atmospheric water vapor
November 14, 2017
A major new paper finds that a well-designed climate system would deliver trillions of dollars in benefits.
climate forecast map, by watershed
November 08, 2017
Water managers and streamflow forecasters can now access bi-weekly, monthly, and seasonal precipitation and temperature forecasts, broken down by individual watershed.
Simulated cooling from geoengineering
November 06, 2017
Using a sophisticated computer model, scientists have demonstrated for the first time that a new research approach to geoengineering could potentially be used to limit Earth’s warming to a specific target while reducing some of the risks and concerns identified in past studies, including uneven cooling of the globe.
Mount Tambora's caldera
October 31, 2017
Major volcanic eruptions in the future have the potential to affect global temperatures and precipitation more dramatically than in the past because of climate change.
