Global Warming Linked To Changes In Precipitation Around The World
2013-11-12 05:18:34

[ Watch the Video: Changes In Global Precipitation From Greenhouse Gases ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to Eliza Doolittle from "My Fair Lady," the rain in Spain lies mainly on the plain. However, according to a new study from the scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), the location and intensity of rain is changing around the globe, not only in Spain. The study, published in the online edition of the Proceedings of the...

Climate Change Plateau Due To Montreal Protocol
2013-11-11 14:29:39

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers writing in the journal Nature Geoscience say CFC gases have had an impact on the rise in global temperatures. Scientists believe CFC gases are responsible for a massive hole in the ozone layer, but the latest study links the ban of these gases to a slowdown in temperature increases since the mid 1990s. The standstill of global temperature rises since 1998 has been used as a key argument by some to show the impacts of global...

Antarctic Ozone Hole Smaller This Year
2013-10-26 05:52:20

[ Watch The Video: Daily Ozone Hole for 2013 ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The Antarctic ozone hole, a seasonal phenomenon that starts forming during the month of August was slightly smaller this year than it was on average over the past several decades, NASA satellite data has revealed. The average size of the ozone hole in September-October 2013 was 8.1 million square miles (21 million square kilometers), the US space agency reported on Friday. In...

South Pacific Flights Make More Ozone
2013-09-05 15:12:27

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A short-lived greenhouse gas, ozone’s formation and destruction depends mostly on the local chemical environment. Now, a new study from MIT researchers has indicated that flights passing over a certain section of the South Pacific produce the most ozone from their emissions. The results of the study, which was published in Environmental Research Letters, could have far-reaching implications for the timing and course taken by some...

Searching For Climate Clues Across Southern US Skies
2013-08-15 11:03:55

NASA NASA research aircraft began flights Aug. 12 from Houston's Ellington Field to investigate how the combination of summer storms and rising air pollution from wildfires, cities, and other sources can change our climate. Hoping to improve future predictions of climate change, scientists in the NASA study are using the skies over much of the southern United States as a natural laboratory this month and into September. They are grappling with one of the tougher factors driving Earth's...

Slight Global Warming May Come From Ozone Winds
2013-08-09 08:27:56

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Laypeople tend to mix up the ozone hole and global warming. The popular belief is that the hole is a major cause of the world’s increasing average temperature. On the other hand, scientists have long attributed the ozone shortage in the hole to a small cooling trend. A new computer model study, led by the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, suggests that there might be a slight warming influence from the ozone hole. The influence is...

Study Says Ozone-protection Treaty Had Climate Benefits Also
2013-08-06 07:36:47

The Earth Institute at Columbia University The global treaty that headed off destruction of earth's protective ozone layer has also prevented major disruption of global rainfall patterns, even though that was not a motivation for the treaty, according to a new study in the Journal of Climate. The 1987 Montreal Protocol phased out the use of chloroflourocarbons, or CFCs, a class of chemicals that destroy ozone in the stratosphere, allowing more ultraviolet radiation to reach earth's...


Word of the Day
penuche
  • A fudgelike confection of brown sugar, cream or milk, and chopped nuts.
'Penuche' is a variant of 'panocha,' a coarse grade of sugar made in Mexico. 'Panocha' probably comes from the Spanish 'panoja, panocha,' ear of grain.
