In an example of the challenges water-strapped Western cities will face in a warming world, new research shows that every degree Fahrenheit of warming in the Salt Lake City region could mean a 1.8 to 6.5 percent drop in the annual flow of streams that provide water to the city.
The water of our planet is on a constant journey. It escapes from the ocean and surfs on clouds until taking that fateful fall back to the Earth’s surface.
A University of Colorado Boulder professor is leading a major NASA airborne science campaign this summer that will probe weather patterns and air pollution over a vast expanse of North America
Global warming was slowed between 2000 and 2010 because of sulfur dioxide spewed forth by volcanoes, researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration claim in a new study.
A newly-developed National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) climate model predicts that increasing carbon dioxide levels will lead to less snowfall in most areas of the world – including the United States – over the next 100 years.
Hurricane Sandy was a fearsome reminder that coastal communities are highly vulnerable to extreme weather events and environmental variability, and that vulnerability is only expected to increase with climate change.
According to a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, summer climates in regions across the globe are mostly warming.
One popular climate record that shows a slower atmospheric warming trend than other studies contains a data calibration problem, and when the problem is corrected the results fall in line with other records and climate models.
- Stoppage; cessation (of labor).
- A standing still or idling (of mills, factories, etc.).
