redOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Big Story Weather from July 3, 2012: Yesterday´s big story was again the heat that spread from the Northern Plains all the way eastward into the power-less places like Maryland and West Virginia. Also, the heat spread further back into the Southeast for another day where heat index values topped 105F. The other side to the story was the severe weather which also occurred in the Southeast. The main threat was from wind damage, with places from...

Past Monsoon Changes Linked To Major Shifts In Indian Civilizations
2012-03-19 04:05:57

A fundamental shift in the Indian monsoon has occurred over the last few millennia, from a steady humid monsoon that favored lush vegetation to extended periods of drought, reports a new study led by researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). The study has implications for our understanding of the monsoon´s response to climate change. The Indian peninsula sustains over a billion people, yet it lies at the same latitude as the Sahara Desert. Without a monsoon, most...

Climate scientists offer revised view of what influences water source for billions of people Harvard climate scientists suggest that the Tibetan Plateau"”thought to be the primary source of heat that drives the South Asian monsoon"”may have far less of an effect than the Himalayas and other surrounding mountains. As the monsoon brings needed rainfall and water to billions of people each year, understanding its proper origin, especially in the context of global climate change, is...

A Purdue University scientist has shown man-made changes to the landscape have affected Indian monsoon rains, suggesting that land-use decisions play an important role in climate change. Monsoon rainfall has decreased over the last 50 years in rural areas where irrigation has been used to increase agriculture in northern India, said Dev Niyogi, an associate professor of agronomy and earth and atmospheric sciences. At the same time, heavily urban areas are seeing an increase in heavy...

Concerned about the H1N1 virus, or swine flu, the French government is urging young and old to forego la bise, the light cheek-to-cheek kiss, officials said. La bise is a social greeting instilled in French children from a very young age, CNN reported Sunday. Students are being told to forego la bise and instead write a sign of their their affection on heart-shaped greetings to be slipped into bise boxes, CNN reported. The French are becoming more accustomed to masks and at least one company...

If it has already rained, it's going to continue to pour, according to a Purdue University study of how ocean-origin storms behave when they come ashore.More than 30 years of monsoon data from India showed that ground moisture where the storms make landfall is a major indicator of what the storm will do from there. If the ground is wet, the storm is likely to sustain, while dry conditions should calm the storm."Once a storm comes overland, it was unclear whether it would stall, accelerate or...

India's southwest monsoon is likely to be below normal this year, which could impact the country's vital agricultural harvest. Southwest monsoon from June to September is likely to be below normal, Earth Sciences Minister Prithviraj Chavan said Wednesday, the Press Trust of India reported. The announcement further downgraded the weather bureau's April forecast of 96 percent of the average rainfall to 93 percent, the report said. The new forecast could also further impact water supply, another...

Monsoon is a global system, and many arrays of evidence indicate that it drives long-term cyclicity of the carbon reservoir in the global ocean. The new view is introduced in a substantial paper in Issue 7 (April 2009) of Chinese Science Bulletin. For over 300 years, monsoon has been considered as a gigantic land-sea breeze of regional scale, but now it is considered as a global system over all continents but Antarctica. This new development in modern climatology, however, has not yet been...

Post Weather Report From August 2, 2012
2012-08-03 11:43:48

Four major events occurred yesterday, the first being the formation of Tropical Storm Ernesto, which is now located just east of the Windward Islands with winds near 45 knots. The second was the heat in the Southern Plains as many places saw temps over 100F with heat index values near 105-110 for the region. High temperatures are again one of the main story makers across the country. 100 degree temperatures continue to plague Texas and Oklahoma. Eleven out of the last 14 days in...

September 5: The southwest was encompassed in the monsoon rains yesterday bringing areas of flash flooding to portions of Arizona. Another smaller but large flooding event occurred along the Mississippi Gulf Coast where places in Jackson County received 7inches of rainfall in 2 1/2hours which lead to large flooding problems of already saturated grounds from Isaac-1. The heat persisted in Eastern Texas and into Louisiana and northward into Arkansas as some places felt temps hit the100’s with...

Black Hills Of South Dakota And Their Impacts On The Weather/Climate
2012-07-17 23:01:25

Located in the white circle is the Black Hills. The black hills are unique in that they are the highest point east of the Rockies as they extend higher than the entire Appalachians. The weather associated with this feature is impressive. If you travel about 30 miles east of the slopes you will find vast plains, however these plains could be classified as desert. The reason is that this region is part of the rain shadow of the hills meaning most of the moisture is stuck west in the...

Topographic Features Impact On The Weather
2012-07-10 20:45:32

The first topographic feature that I would like to talk about today is the Rocky Mountains. The Rocky mountains with their rugged terrain and high elevation can really become a large impact on weather patterns in the United States. First, the Rockies provide the Central Plains with the cold air aloft that is needed in the formation of severe weather to include tornadoes. Secondly, the Rocky mountains act as a barrier for any large weather system that moves onshore along the Pacific...

  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
