Future climate change revealed by current climate variations

Wed, 17 Jan 18 00:02:00 -0800

Uncertainty surrounding the extent of future climate change could be dramatically reduced by studying year-on-year global temperature fluctuations, new research has shown.

Between the lines: Tree rings hold clues about a river's past

Tue, 09 Jan 18 00:15:50 -0800

By analyzing centuries-old tree rings, researchers at Utah State University are extracting data about monthly streamflow trends from periods long before the early 1900s when recorded observations began.

HKBU and CUHK discovered that human-perceived temperature is rising faster than actual air temperature

Tue, 09 Jan 18 00:03:00 -0800

Professor David Chen and Dr Li Jianfeng found the apparent temperature (AP)increased faster than air temperature (AT) over land in the past few decades, especially in the low latitude areas, and the rise is expected to continue in the future.

How much soil goes down the drain -- New data on soil lost due to water

Fri, 15 Dec 17 00:16:20 -0800

According to a new study, almost 36 billion tons of soil is lost every year due to water, and deforestation and other changes in land use make the problem worse. The study also offers ideas on how agriculture can change to become a part of the solution from being part of the problem.

Sustainable dams -- are they possible?

Mon, 11 Dec 17 00:13:20 -0800

Humans have been altering natural waterways for centuries, but only in the last several decades have dams raised ecological concerns. N. LeRoy Poff, professor of biology at Colorado State University, studies the ecological impact to rivers from human-caused changes, such as dam building, and how these modified river systems can be managed for resilience. In a Perspective piece in the journal Science, Poff writes on the state of research in sustainable dam design.

Extreme fieldwork, climate modeling yields new insight into predicting Greenland's melt

Fri, 08 Dec 17 00:03:00 -0800

A new UCLA-led study brings together scientists from land hydrology, glaciology and climate modeling to unravel a meltwater mystery. UCLA professor of geography Laurence Smith and his team of researchers discovered that some meltwater from the lakes and rivers atop the region's glaciers, is being stored and trapped on top of the glacier inside a low-density, porous 'rotten ice.' This phenomenon affects climate model predictions of Greenland's meltwater.

The land of the Vega Granada area subsides up to one centimeter per year as a result of the drought

Tue, 28 Nov 17 00:12:10 -0800

Three satellites have monitored ground variations of the Vega de Granada area since 2003 as part of a study by the University of Granada and the Geological Survey of Spain

Engineers model the California reservoir network

Wed, 22 Nov 17 00:02:20 -0800

An empirical model of 55 of California's major reservoirs reveals how they respond to shifting drought conditions and to one another.

Slight climate shifts can affect optimum water use in plant communities
A new discovery is providing scientists a better understanding of how rainfall is shared beneficially by the plant community and the human population, in addition to the effects of climate change. 'It's going to be a wet gets wetter, dry gets drier world,' said Dr. Georgianne Moore, Texas A
