A new online platform offers comprehensive data and tools about U.S. hydropower assets, enabling data-driven decisionmaking at the energy–water nexus.
Limitations with resolving complex underground targets with sufficiently fine resolution may be alleviated through the adoption of meshless electromagnetic methods.
Geomagnetic storms could significantly disrupt electrified train operations in the United Kingdom once every few decades, according to a new study.
For the first time, scientists have redirected lightning using a laser beam. And that’s just the start of what’s possible.
A hypothetical, space weather–induced power grid catastrophe served as a practice case for building unity and collaborative skills among disparate communities to address a major global hazard.
Altitude-resolved S-band radar observations of graupel are used to decipher thunderstorm ground enhancements in surface electric field and gamma ray flux.
Lightning could have sparked the beginnings of life, but the primordial atmosphere might have made it more difficult for lightning to initiate.
A method called flash Joule heating could offer a more sustainable way to source essential components of electronics from coal fly ash.
Studies since 2018 have provided competing explanations of bright radar reflections from the base of the south polar ice cap.
Keri Nicoll received the 2020 Atmospheric and Space Electricity Early Career Award at AGU’s virtual Fall Meeting 2020. The award recognizes “significant contributions to atmospheric and space electricity science from honorees within 10 years of receiving their Ph.D. degree.”
