A new analysis indicates that the frequency and magnitude of extreme precipitation events are expected to increase as Earth continues to warm.
In recent decades, there have been more intense North Atlantic hurricanes. A new study compares climate models to see whether they can attribute increasing potential intensity to human activity.
A new study unveils the increasing exposure of coastal communities to minor and extreme floods as sea levels rise.
Improving our understanding of the relationship between changes in precipitation and flooding due to rising temperature is a new grand challenge for the scientific community, argue the authors of a recent commentary.
Meeting of the Caribbean Climate Modelling Consortium; Kingston, Jamaica, 25 July 2018
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.
Lightning is a symptom and a cause of climate change. A recently established task team is working to make lightning data available and useful for climate science and service applications.
A network of tree-ring chronologies has been used to develop the first reconstruction of atmospheric river landfalls on the US Pacific Coast over the last 500 years.
Multiple factors often interact to amplify the effects of severe storms, droughts, and other extreme water-related events.
