Tropical Cyclone Joyce makes landfall on Australia's Pilbara Coast

Fri, 12 Jan 18 00:09:40 -0800

NOAA's JPSS-1 satellite provided a visible image of the tropical storm after it made landfall along the Pilbara Coast in the northwestern part of Western Australia.

NASA calculated heavy rainfall leading to California mudslides

Thu, 11 Jan 18 00:01:40 -0800

Winter rains falling on recently burned ground triggered deadly mudslides in Santa Barbara County, California on Jan. 9. NASA calculated the amount of rain fall between Jan. 8 and 10, 2018 and calculated the potential for landslides.

NASA's IMERG measures Tropical Cyclone Ava's disastrous rainfall

Wed, 10 Jan 18 00:12:00 -0800

Tropical cyclone Ava dropped extremely heavy rainfall over Madagascar as it passed over the eastern side of the island country on Jan. 5 and 6, 2018. NASA calculated how much rainfall occurred using satellite data.

The complexities of clouds and the seeds that make them

Wed, 10 Jan 18 00:02:40 -0800

In an effort to understand exactly how the micro and macro cloud properties interact with atmospheric particles, a collaborative research team conducted a modeling study analyzing three well-documented weather systems that occurred in March of 2000 over the southern Great Plains in the United States.

Soil freeze-thaw stimulates nitrous oxide emissions from alpine meadows

Tue, 09 Jan 18 00:13:30 -0800

Soil freeze-thaw is a common natural phenomenon in Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, which can not only change the water and heat conditions, and the physical and chemical properties of soil, but also influence greatly the biosphere-atmosphere exchanges of greenhouse gases.

Advances in Atmospheric Science launches special issue on cloud studies

Tue, 09 Jan 18 00:01:30 -0800

A special issue of the journal Advances in Atmospheric Science provides new research on aerosol and cloud properties and their effects on radiation and precipitation. The journal's February issue features 11 articles that broadly examine this important topic, addressing one of the bigger mysteries still surrounding climate change despite years of inquiry: how do aerosols impact the climate?

The silver lining: Scientists examine how aerosol types influence cloud formation

Tue, 09 Jan 18 00:01:10 -0800

Not all aerosols are made equally. Sea salt and some types of wild fire smoke can take flight to create clouds and, eventually, rain, while other aerosols, such as mineral dust, do not work as well. Scientists are beginning to understand exactly how these different particles influence cloud formation and resulting precipitation over land and sea.

Powerful tropical cyclone irving examined with GPM

Mon, 08 Jan 18 00:10:20 -0800

On Jan. 8, Tropical Cyclone Irving was hurricane-force in the Southern Indian Ocean. The Global Precipitation Measurement Mission or GPM core satellite passed overhead and measured cloud heights and rainfall rates in the powerful storm.

Scientists find culprits for extreme rainfall over Yangtze River in May 2016

Fri, 05 Jan 18 00:11:00 -0800

Chinese and British scientists used the 'Risk Ratio' (RR), a probabilistic extreme event attribution approach, to characterize the anthropogenic contribution to the occurrence of the extreme event and found the strong El Niño of 2015-16 may account for the extreme precipitation event over Yangtze River basin in 2016.

How genes will save or fail birds in the face of climate change

Thu, 04 Jan 18 00:04:10 -0800

A new study analyzing the genomes of yellow warblers in North America reveals how some subpopulations are more 'genetically vulnerable' to changes associated with climate change; furthermore, it finds that genes linked to exploratory and migratory behavior may be important for successful climate adaptation.

NASA looks at rainfall intensity in Tropical Depression Bolaven

Thu, 04 Jan 18 00:06:00 -0800

The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite gathered data on rainfall rates occurring in Tropical Depression Bolaven as it moved toward Vietnam. Bolaven's final warning was issued early today, Jan. 4.
