Arctic beetles may be ideal marker of climate change

Arctic beetles may be ideal marker of climate change
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-04-23


Scientists have been logging changes in weather patterns and temperatures in the Arctic for some time. Now they need to find ways to measure how these changes in climate are affecting biodiversity. One of the best places to look may be down at our feet, at beetles. That`s because, as a McGill research team discovered after doing the first large-scale survey of Arctic beetles, these six-legged critters...(Read More)

'Warm blob' in Pacific Ocean linked to weird weather across the US
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-04-14


A long-lived patch of warm water off the West Coast, about 1 to 4 degrees Celsius (2 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit) above normal, is part of what's wreaking much of this mayhem, according to two University of Washington papers to appear in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geophysical Union."In the fall of 2013 and early 2014 we started to notice a big, almost circular mass of water...(Read More)

Better method for forecasting hurricane season

Better method for forecasting hurricane season
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-04-05


The UA team's new model improves the accuracy of seasonal hurricane forecasts for the North Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico by 23 percent. The team's research paper was published online in the journal Weather and Forecasting on March 25."Our model is better at predicting the number of seasonal hurricanes in the Atlantic than the other existing models," said first author Kyle Davis, a master's student...(Read More)

More big storms increase tropical rainfall totals

More big storms increase tropical rainfall totals
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-03-26


Joint research from the Monash branch of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science (ARCCSS) and NASA published in Nature found even though other types of rainfall has decreased in frequency and the total number of thunderstorms remained the same, the increase in big storms had elevated total rainfall."The observations showed the increase in rainfall is directly...(Read More)

Forest managers hindered in efforts to use prescribed burns to control costly wildfires

Forest managers hindered in efforts to use prescribed burns to control costly wildfires
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-03-17


Fighting wildfires is costly. The U.S. government now spends about $2 billion a year just to stop them, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. That's up from $239 million in 1985.Leda Kobziar, an associate professor of fire science and forest conservation in UF's School of Forest Resources and Conservation, led a web-based survey of 523 public and private land managers across Region 8...(Read More)

Elusive El Niño arrives: Forecasters predict it will stay weak, have little influence on weather and climate

Elusive El Niño arrives: Forecasters predict it will stay weak, have little influence on weather and climate
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-03-08


Due to the weak strength of the El Niño, widespread or significant global weather pattern impacts are not anticipated. However, certain impacts often associated with El Niño may appear this spring in parts of the Northern Hemisphere, such as wetter-than-normal conditions along the U.S. Gulf Coast."Based on the persistent observations of above-average sea surface temperatures across the western and...(Read More)

Wind-powered freighters

Wind-powered freighters
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-02-27


International shipping is transporting 90 percent of all goods on earth. Running on heavy fuel oil freighters contribute to pollution. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) wants to reduce the environmental impact of ocean liners. One of the measures: Starting from 2020, ships will only be allowed to use fuel containing maximum 0.1 percent sulfur in their fuel in certain areas. However, the...(Read More)

Ancient snow patches melting at record speed

Ancient snow patches melting at record speed
Written by Drew Bradley on 2015-02-18


They actually shouldn't be found in Norway. Summers are too hot and winters too dry for glaciers or perennial snow patches to form here. Yet, the Kringsollfonna ice patch in Sør-Trøndelag county and the Storbreen glacier just north of Snøhetta mountain have done just that for over 5000 years, even surviving the warm period in the Middle Ages.Now they're melting fast. With one or two more hot summers,...(Read More)
