Latest Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment Stories
A German-Russian research team has investigated the role of heat exchange between ocean and atmosphere in long-term climate variability in the Atlantic.
One would not assume that cloud cover over Antactica's Southern Ocean could cause rainfall in Zambia or the tropical island of Java. New research from the University of Washington, however, finds that a phantom band of rainfall just south of the equator that does not occur in reality is caused by poor simulation of the cloud cover thousands of miles farther to the south.
The vagaries of South Asian summer monsoon rainfall impact the lives of more than one billion people.
As ESA's SMOS mission nears the end of its commissioning, a new network will provide harmonized global datasets of soil moisture measurements collected from the ground, ensuring the data received from space are as accurate as possible.
Earth has a limited amount of water that recycles itself in what is called the â€˜water cycleâ€™.
Australian scientists say they have determined pollution from Asia, Europe and North America is causing climate change in the Southern Hemisphere. Researchers at Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization said they used a climate model that included the effects of tiny
New research announced at the international Water in a changing climate science conference in Melbourne 24-28 August, implicates pollution from Asia, Europe and North America as a contributor to recent Australian rainfall changes.
NASA scientists have detected the first signs that tropical rainfall is on the rise with the longest and most complete data record available.
A NASA study is offering new insight into how the Earth's water cycle might be influenced by global change. In recent years, scientists have warned that the water cycle may be affected by temperature changes, as warmer temperatures can increase the moisture-holding capacity of air.
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...
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...
- Any of various tropical Old World birds of the family Indicatoridae, some species of which lead people or animals to the nests of wild honeybees. The birds eat the wax and larvae that remain after the nest has been destroyed for its honey.
