PHOENIX, Jan. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Emerald Cities(TM) USA Ltd. (div.
Scientists have taken a major step toward accurately determining the amount of energy that the sun provides to Earth, and how variations in that energy may contribute to climate change.
Cities such as New York, Philadelphia, and Boston are prominent centers of political power.
Water vapor and clouds are the major contributors to Earth's greenhouse effect, but a new atmosphere-ocean climate modeling study shows that the planet's temperature ultimately depends on the atmospheric level of carbon dioxide.
PHOENIX, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- With asphalt temperatures soaring above 200 degrees F in Phoenix this summer, one company has volunteered to help cool down the schools.
Heat waves like those that baked the Northeast in July are likely to be more frequent and more intense in the future, with their effects amplified in densely built urban environments like Manhattan.
SHANGHAI, July 1 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Energy Recovery, Inc.
NSF-supported climate scientist Mark Flanner and colleagues find differences in the rates for spring warming and snow cover decline in Eurasia and North America, and are studying whether aerosols are a key factor.
Four billion years ago, our then stripling sun radiated only 70 to 75 percent as much energy as it does today.
SEATTLE, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Clean Power Research announced a groundbreaking update to their SolarAnywhere (http://www.solaranywhere.com) irradiance data service.
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...
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...
