This helps us understand how climate change can cause more extreme weather — both hot and cold.
When temperature peaks, so does crime.
“Extreme” things generally aren’t very healthy.
Bad weather just got a bit worse.
They’re heating up twice as fast as everywhere else.
The effects of climate change are way beyond deniabiity, researchers say. It’s time to start acting.
I’m not saying it’s climate change, but it definitely quacks like climate change.
Yarrr, there be a storm a’brewing!
The level of detail is exceptional.
Everything you wanted to know about climate. No — really.
Yes, it actually snowed in Sahara.
Hot, droughty, floody, deadly.
Researchers might have an explanation for why winters have gotten so horrendous.
Stormy weather has an unusual upside if you happen to live on Australia’s eastern coasts: giant waves of sea foam.
Weather forecasts have gotten significantly better in recent years – not because we have a much better understanding of weather has gotten much better, but rather because advanced computers allow us to develop more complex models. You can generally predict weather for 2-3 days, and in some cases of up to 7-10 days. Anything that goes beyond that is simply not
The European Meteorological Satellite Organization (EUMETSAT) in collaboration with the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released a time-lapse 4K video of the weather of 2015 — and it’s awesome.
By the time you’ve finished reading this sentence, thousands of lightning bolts had already discharged enormous amounts of energy onto Earth’s surface. Now, a map compiled by NASA using two decades worth of measurements shows which places are hit most often. For instance, land is hit more frequently than the ocean, as is the equatorial region compared to other regions of the globe.
Did you know it rains more in Miami, Orlando and NYC than in London?
What you see above is a rendering of California’s winds, as derived from data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data and rendered in Web developer Cameron Beccario’s “Earth.” The website showcases a brilliant depiction of global winds, and I highly recommend you checking it out. Truly breathtaking!
The most detailed observations of the icy world of Uranus, the seventh planet from the sun, show complex weather patterns and other features that scientists have yet to fully describe. Popular belief had Uranus depicted as a bland, pale green world based on the now iconic observations from Voyager’s 1986 flyby of the planet. Its instruments from the time, however,
