Using turbulent heat fluxes as an example, a new study shows that exchange of information between process-based models and deep learning methods may lead to improved predictions.
Researchers find that past studies underestimate the friction meltwater channels exert on glaciers by orders of magnitude.

Scientists traveled to Kerala, a state in India recently devastated by severe monsoon rains. They found a vulnerable population that will soon face fresh landslide risks as a new monsoon approaches.
A different modeling approach fills large gaps in the U.S. government’s flood risk estimates, revealing previously overlooked at-risk areas often surrounding small flood-prone streams.
