Canadian scientists say climate change will lead to less ultraviolet radiation in some northern areas, such as Siberia, Scandinavia and northern Canada. Physicists at the University of Toronto said they have discovered changes in the Earth's ozone layer due to climate change will reduce the amount of ultraviolet radiation in northern high latitude regions, while other areas of the Earth, such as the tropics and Antarctica, will instead face increasing levels of UV radiation. Using a...

Subtle connections between the 11-year-solar cycle, the stratosphere and the tropical Pacific Ocean work in sync to generate periodic weather patterns that affect much of the globe, according to research results appearing this week in the journal Science. The findings will help scientists get an edge on predicting the intensity of certain climate phenomena, such as the Indian monsoon and tropical Pacific rainfall, years in advance. "It's been long known that weather patterns are...

Our sun does not radiate evenly. The best known example of radiation fluctuations is the famous 11-year cycle of sun spots. Nobody denies its influence on the natural climate variability, but climate models have, to-date, not been able to satisfactorily reconstruct its impact on climate activity.Researchers from the USA and from Germany have now, for the first time, successfully simulated, in detail, the complex interaction between solar radiation, atmosphere, and the ocean. As the scientific...

A new study suggests that a lack of sunshine may cloud memory and other thinking or "cognitive" functions in some people with depression, Reuters reported. Experts have often cited the association between sunlight exposure and mood. One such example is seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which is a depression where symptoms shift with the seasons, usually arising in the late fall and winter and improving in sunnier months. Researchers are now attempting to find out whether sunshine can affect...

The above image looks at the month of March for the three cycles known as Normal Phase, El-Nino, and La-Nina. The data was recorded for the city of Honolulu Hawaii, during the month of March. Remember this is just data for one month during these cycles. Normal: During this cycle incoming solar activity was upwards to 48% efficient for the month, producing less than 50% of the month which is due to the large amount of daily cloud cover that is seen on the island during the early morning and...

The above image looks at the month of March for the three cycles known as Normal Phase, El-Nino, and La-Nina. The data was recorded for the city of Austin Texas. Remember this is just data for one month during these cycles. Normal: During this cycle incoming solar activity was upwards to 60% efficient for the month, producing enough solar energy that only 40% of the month would have not had strong incoming radiation. EL-Nino: This phase provided the area with an extended number of...

Sunglasses are protective eyewear designed to shield the eyes from damaging or discomforting sunlight and high-energy light. They can also work as a visual aid. The ultraviolet radiation from the sun can cause several serious eye problems and many healthcare professionals recommend eye protection. However, since the 1940s sunglasses have been associated with celebrities more so than eye protection. James Ayscough experimented with tinted lenses in the mid-18th century although they were...
