Latest Climate model Stories
Wildfires may seem like a fixed and unchanging force of nature.
As a result of global warming, much of the Western Hemisphere, as well as large sections of Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia, face the threat of an extreme drought within the next three decades.
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.
Scientists at the Carnegie Institution's Department of Global Ecology have taken a new approach on examining a proposal to fix the warming planet.
Scientists can now study climate change in far more detail with powerful new computer software released by the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
Newly detected rising sea levels in parts of the Indian Ocean, including the coastlines of the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea, Sri Lanka, Sumatra and Java, appear to be at least partly a result of human-induced increases of atmospheric greenhouse gases.
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md recently introduced the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS), an integrated set of supercomputing, visualization, and data interaction technologies that will enhance agency capabilities in weather and climate prediction research.
GREENBELT, Md., June 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
Debuting in spring 2010, the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) is the new name for a Goddard Space Flight Center organization that has provided supercomputing resources to NASA scientists and engineers for over 25 years.
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.
