nuisance flooding
2014-07-29 05:25:51

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released a technical report on Monday revealing that of the top 10 US cities that have seen an increase in nuisance flooding, eight are on the East Coast. Nuisance flooding causes public inconveniences such as frequent road closures, overwhelmed storm drains and compromised infrastructure, and is the result of rising sea levels. Such flooding has increased along all three US...

NSU They are something we take very seriously in Florida – hurricanes. The names roll off the tongue like a list of villains – Andrew, Charlie, Frances and Wilma. In the past 25 years or so, experts have gradually been improving prediction of the course a storm may take. This is thanks to tremendous advancements in computer and satellite technology. While we still have the “cone of uncertainty” we’ve become familiar with watching television weather reports, today’s models...

Oregon State University Scientists have long been concerned that global warming may push Earth's climate system across a "tipping point," where rapid melting of ice and further warming may become irreversible -- a hotly debated scenario with an unclear picture of what this point of no return may look like. A newly published study by researchers at Oregon State University probed the geologic past to understand mechanisms of abrupt climate change. The study pinpoints the emergence of...

SAN DIEGO, July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As outdoor sports heat-up local fields, it is important that parents, coaches and children take precautions when it comes to weather. Lightning - which is very common during this time of year -- causes an average of 62 deaths and 300 injuries in the United States each year, according to the National Weather Service. But nearly all injuries can be avoided by taking simple precautions. "Sports are exciting and fun. But, finishing a game is never worth...

Pause In Global Warming Reflects Natural Fluctuation
2014-07-24 03:38:04

McGill University Statistical analysis of average global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 shows that the slowdown in global warming during this period is consistent with natural variations in temperature, according to research by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy. In a paper published this month in Geophysical Research Letters, Lovejoy concludes that a natural cooling fluctuation during this period largely masked the warming effects of a continued increase in man-made...

amazon 2014 fire severity forecast
2014-07-24 02:00:08

Kathryn Hansen, NASA's Earth Science News Team Researchers at NASA and the University of California, Irvine, using a variety of satellite data, expect Amazon forests this year to see a below-average wildfire season. The fire season in this region of South America typically begins in May, peaks in September and ends in January. "2014 looks to be a quiet year for fires in the Amazon region, as sea surface temperatures remained neutral in the Pacific and cool in the Atlantic through April,...

Urban Heat Island
2013-04-02 15:35:21

An urban heat island (UHI) is a metropolitan area that is drastically warmer than its surrounding rural areas because of human activities. The phenomenon was first looked into and described by Luke Howard during the 1810s, although he wasn’t the one to name the phenomenon. The difference in temperature is normally bigger at night as opposed to during the day, and it most obvious when winds are weak. Seasonally, UHI is seen during the summer and the winter. The key cause of the urban heat...

Desertification
2013-04-02 09:46:56

Desertification is a form of land degradation in which a comparatively dry land area becomes more and more arid, normally losing its bodies of water along with its wildlife and vegetation. This is a result of a variety of factors, such as climate change and human activities. Desertification is an important global, ecological, and environmental issue. There is substantial controversy over the proper definition of the term “desertification”. The most broadly accepted of these is that of...

Climate Change
2013-04-01 11:05:27

Climate change is a substantial and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods of time ranging from decades to millions of years. It might be a change in the average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions. Climate change is a result of factors that include oceanic processes, biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received buy Earth, volcanic eruptions, and plate tectonics, and human induced alterations...

Weather Model Discussion:  How To Use Surface Dew-points For Weather Forecasting Purposes
2013-01-29 08:53:47

Surface Dew-points can play a huge role in weather forecasting. The first such role is that it helps determine the amount of moisture in the atmosphere for a given point. If we look at the current dew-point map above from January 28, 2013 we can note several things of interest. First, if we look at where the black circle is around the number 70, we can make note that this air right off the coast of Texas is at a dew point of 70F. The temperature outside must be above 70F, because the...

Weather Education - Air Mass Thunderstorms
2013-01-13 10:30:47

Air mass thunderstorms are found in marine time tropical air. In short they are also known as MT Thunderstorms. Air mass thunderstorms represent what is known as the common three stage thunderstorm development. This means that an air mass thunderstorm goes through the stages of Cumulus which is represented by the updrafts only being present; secondly it moves into the mature stage where it has both updrafts and downdrafts; finally it goes into the dissipating stage where you see only the...
