Rainbow-Like Feature Imaged On Venus For The First Time
2014-03-12 08:59:24

ESA A rainbow-like feature known as a ‘glory’ has been seen by ESA’s Venus Express orbiter in the atmosphere of our nearest neighbor – the first time one has been fully imaged on another planet. Rainbows and glories occur when sunlight shines on cloud droplets – water particles in the case of Earth. While rainbows arch across wide swathes of the sky, glories are typically much smaller and comprise a series of colored concentric rings centered on a bright core. Glories are...

North Atlantic Climate Variability Influenced By Solar Activity
2014-03-11 08:11:32

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A 1,000-year period of pronounced climate variability occurring in Europe could have been the result of changes in the sun’s energy output, according to research published in Sunday’s edition of the journal Nature Geoscience. In the study, lead author Dr. Paola Moffa-Sanchez of the Cardiff University School of Earth and Ocean Sciences and her colleagues studied seafloor sediments to uncover changes to the temperature and...

NASA Eyes Troublesome Tropical Cyclone Lusi
2014-03-10 13:24:01

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Cyclone Lusi has spawned warnings and watches in the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and New Zealand as it moves through the South Pacific Ocean. NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites provided visible and infrared views of the storm that revealed it has become better organized. NASA's Terra satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Cyclone Lusi over Vanuatu on March 9 at 23:30 UTC. The image showed towering thunderstorms surrounded the center and...

Double Tropical Trouble For Queensland, Australia Seen By NASA
2014-03-07 15:08:46

Rob Gutro, NASA There are two developing areas of tropical low pressure that lie east and west of Queensland, Australia. System 96P and System 98P, respectively. The MODIS instrument that flies aboard both NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites captured images of both tropical trouble-makers as each satellite passed overhead on March 7. In the Coral Sea, part of the Southwestern Pacific Ocean, System 96P was just 125 nautical miles/143.8 miles/231.5 km north-northeast of Willis Island,...

El Nino Forecast A Sign Of Relief For Drought-Stricken Californians
2014-03-07 10:37:54

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online California residents plagued by drought just got some good news from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA): El Niño is coming – maybe. El Niño is a weather-generating phenomenon based on the surface water temperatures off the western coast of South America and NOAA’s long-range forecast has said there is about a 50-50 chance that it will form this summer or fall – potentially bringing wetter weather to the...

Now that temperatures are rising and rainfall is increasing in Atlanta, structureMEDIC is warning homeowners of increased potential for mold growth caused by water damage from pipes frozen and gutters damaged by the recent ice and snow storms. Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 06, 2014 As the temperatures around Atlanta continue to fluctuate, structureMEDIC, Atlanta mold remediation specialists, is cautioning homeowners to be diligent about properly cleaning water damage caused by frozen and...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Just as you might keep a spare tire in your car, or a spare filter for your air conditions, NASA keeps spares as well. These "spare" flight hardware units allow NASA to continue work without interruption in the event that something goes down for repair. These spare parts are kept even after the project ends, sometimes finding second lives in new areas. A sophisticated piece of flight hardware, called a Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS),...

Interview with Water Researcher Winston Kao on Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® Radio Show. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) March 03, 2014 The humidity in the air – the gasified water vapor droplets that enable us to breathe and prevent us from drying out and shriveling up – is just as vulnerable to water pollution as are the lakes, rivers and aquifers on the ground. The health consequences of polluted humidity are just as bad, if not worse than other...

flooding in europe to double
2014-03-03 05:46:00

International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis Losses from extreme floods in Europe could more than double by 2050, because of climate change and socioeconomic development. Understanding the risk posed by large-scale floods is of growing importance and will be key for managing climate adaptation. Current flood losses in Europe are likely to double by 2050, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change by researchers from the International Institute for...

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...

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...

Weather Education - Super-cell Thunderstorms
2013-01-13 09:51:18

In this lesson we are going to take a look at super-cell thunderstorms and what they mean and how they impact our daily lives. First, a super-cell thunderstorm is formed from a cumulus-nimbus cloud.  Super-cell thunderstorms are the most advanced form of thunderstorms known on earth. This is because these types of thunderstorms need so many things to come together in the atmosphere at the same time. The first thing they need is the warm moist air at or near the surface. Secondly, is...
