Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online It is said that no two snowflakes are alike and new research from the University of Utah shows just how unique the cold-weather precipitation can be. Using a high-speed camera system, the researchers were able to capture images of individual snowflakes and determine how fast they were falling to the ground. "For forecasting the weather, fall speed is the thing that matters," Tim Garrett, an associate professor of atmospheric...

Theory also says energy conservation doesn't help In a provocative new study, a University of Utah scientist argues that rising carbon dioxide emissions "“ the major cause of global warming "“ cannot be stabilized unless the world's economy collapses or society builds the equivalent of one new nuclear power plant each day. "It looks unlikely that there will be any substantial near-term departure from recently observed acceleration in carbon dioxide emission rates," says the new...

Study: Early explorers saw particulate haze in late 1800sScientists know that air pollution particles from mid-latitude cities migrate to the Arctic and form an ugly haze, but a new University of Utah study finds surprising evidence that polar explorers saw the same phenomenon as early as 1870."The reaction from some colleagues "“ when we first mentioned that people had seen haze in the late 1800s "“ was that it was crazy," says Tim Garrett, assistant professor of meteorology and...
