The Asian monsoon already existed 40 million years ago during a period of high atmospheric carbon dioxide and warmer temperatures, reports an international research team led by a University of Arizona geoscientist.
A new analysis of satellite data reveals a link between dust in North Africa and West Asia and stronger monsoons in India.
The Bronze Age Indus civilization, which spanned across northwest India and Pakistan, flourished for thousands of years and mysteriously declined as some type of development forced these ancient people to abandon the mega-cities they had constructed.
A new study from Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory reveals that a northward shift of Earth's wind and rain belts could make a broad swath of regions drier.
Greener Pastures, a sustainable tourism company based in Northeastern India, has launched two very exotic tours this summer from June to September, which provide travelers a chance to experience
Global warming may increase the risk for extreme rainfall and drought, a new NASA-led modeling study predicts. The study demonstrates for the first time how rising carbon dioxide concentrations could affect the entire range of rainfall types on Earth.
For much of Asia, the pace of life is tuned to rhythms of monsoons.
Rising global temperatures are expected to cause catastrophic change worldwide; however a team of University of California, Berkeley and University of Washington scientists has found that the Northern Hemisphere will see a greater shift in tropical rainfall patterns compared to the Earth’s southern half.
Natural swings in the climate have significantly intensified Northern Hemisphere monsoon rainfall, showing that these swings must be taken into account for climate predictions in the coming decades.
A delay in the summer monsoon rains that fall over the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico is expected in the coming decades
Four major events occurred yesterday, the first being the formation of Tropical Storm Ernesto, which is now located just east of the Windward Islands with winds near 45 knots. The second was the heat in the Southern Plains as many places saw temps over 100F with heat index values near 105-110 for the region. High temperatures are again one of the main story makers across the country. 100 degree temperatures continue to plague Texas and Oklahoma. Eleven out of the last 14 days in...
September 5: The southwest was encompassed in the monsoon rains yesterday bringing areas of flash flooding to portions of Arizona. Another smaller but large flooding event occurred along the Mississippi Gulf Coast where places in Jackson County received 7inches of rainfall in 2 1/2hours which lead to large flooding problems of already saturated grounds from Isaac-1. The heat persisted in Eastern Texas and into Louisiana and northward into Arkansas as some places felt temps hit the100’s with...
Rain is a type of liquid precipitation. It is defined as condensation of atmospheric water vapor that forms into drops that become heavy enough to fall, and often making it to the surface. Rain is the primary source of most of the fresh water in the world. Rain provides suitable conditions for diverse ecosystems, water for power sources and for crop irrigation. Not all rain reaches the surface. Some rain evaporates as it falls, especially through dry air. This type of rainfall is known as...
