Vital Precipitation Could Be Lost Through Climate Geoengineering
2013-11-01 07:38:38

A new study shows that although a significant build-up in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere would alter worldwide precipitation patterns, a widely discussed technological approach to reduce future global warming would also interfere with rainfall and snowfall.

Collective risks are hard for people to grasp. A good example of this is climate change. Despite annual climate summits, no specific measures have arisen because people place greater value on immediate material rewards than on investing in future quality of life.

Current Sea Level Rise
2013-04-01 10:39:21

The sea levels all around the world are rising. Current sea-level rise has the potential to affect human populations and the natural environment. Two key factors have contributed to the observed sea level rise. The first is thermal expansion: as the ocean water warms, it expands. The second is from the influence of land-based ice because of increased melting. The major store of water on land is found in the glaciers and the ice sheets. The rising of sea levels is one of several lines of...

Incoming Solar Radiation Impacts By Various Weather Cycles

The above image looks at the month of March for the three cycles known as Normal Phase, El-Nino, and La-Nina. The data was recorded for the city of Honolulu Hawaii, during the month of March. Remember this is just data for one month during these cycles. Normal: During this cycle incoming solar activity was upwards to 48% efficient for the month, producing less than 50% of the month which is due to the large amount of daily cloud cover that is seen on the island during the early morning and...

Being a meteorologist for over thirteen years you start to take note of many things in the atmosphere and how they repeat themselves. Our Climate is no different. The definition of climate is stated as: the collective weather data in regards to moisture and temperature for over 30 years for the same location. So to better understand our climate we need to look at this. First, we have average temperatures for given places based on the 30 year average. Some years the temps are warmer or...

Incoming Solar Radiation Impacts By Various Weather Cycles

The above image looks at the month of March for the three cycles known as Normal Phase, El-Nino, and La-Nina. The data was recorded for the city of Austin Texas. Remember this is just data for one month during these cycles. Normal: During this cycle incoming solar activity was upwards to 60% efficient for the month, producing enough solar energy that only 40% of the month would have not had strong incoming radiation. EL-Nino: This phase provided the area with an extended number of...

The month of March provided a huge absence of winter with record breaking temperatures from the Canada border all the way south and eastward across the United States. Half of the United States shattered records which made the month of March, 2012 the warmest ever on record. There are a few states that did not share in the record warmth  along the west coast. They actually had cooler weather. What lead to the extreme warm temperatures during the month of March was a weather pattern built...
