Simulating Climate Change Using New Technique
2013-03-05 13:13:13

Brown University Statistical physics offers an approach to studying climate change that could dramatically reduce the time and brute-force computing that current simulation techniques require. The new approach focuses on fundamental forces that drive climate rather than on “following every little swirl” of water or air. And yes, there´s an app for that. Scientists are using ever more complex models running on ever more powerful computers to simulate the earth´s...

A new NASA-funded prototype system developed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) of Boulder, Colo., now is providing weather forecasts that can help flights avoid major storms as they travel over remote ocean regions. The eight-hour forecasts of potentially dangerous atmospheric conditions are designed for pilots, air traffic controllers and others involved in transoceanic flights. The NCAR-based system combines satellite data and computer weather models to produce maps...

CATHALAC has developed a first of its kind tool for the prediction of landslide hazards in Mesoamerica, in order to provide the region with much needed early warning capacities. The tool utilizes a range of earth observation data inputs, including data from weather forecast models. It is hoped that widespread use of the tool will lead to minimization of the loss of life and property. Panama City, Panama (PRWEB) June 19, 2012 The Water Center for the Humid Tropics of Latin America and the...

Every cloud has a silver lining: weather forecasting models could predict brain tumor growth Ever wondered how meteorologists can accurately predict the weather? They use complex spatiotemporal weather models, i.e. mathematical equations that track the motions of the atmosphere through time and space, and combine them with incoming data streams from weather stations and satellites. Now, an innovative new study published in BioMed Central's open access journal Biology Direct has determined...

Image 1 - Space Weather Prediction Model Improves NOAA’s Forecast Skill
2011-10-21 03:07:21

[ Watch the Video ] NOAA is now using a sophisticated forecast model that substantially improves predictions of space weather impacts on Earth. Better forecasts offer additional protection for people and the technology-based infrastructure we use daily. Explosions in the sun´s outer atmosphere — tracked and forecast by NOAA scientists — can cause geomagnetic and solar radiation storms at Earth that can impede the operation of electrical power grids, interfere with the...
