Subseasonal weather forecast ensembles are a useful tool for overcoming the inherent difficulty of quantifying extreme weather risk caused by data scarcity.
Mental Illness Can Be Deadly During Heat Waves
Schizophrenia topped the list of conditions associated with death during the 2021 extreme heat event in British Columbia.
Rivers in the Sky Are Hindering Winter Arctic Sea Ice Recovery
Climate change is increasing the frequency of moisture-dumping atmospheric rivers in the Arctic. The storms are pushing back sea ice at a time of year when it should be expanding.
Rate of Temperature–Precipitation Scaling in Rainfall Events
Future extreme rain will be embedded in shorter, more convective dominant rainfall events in the northeastern region of North America, leading to larger rate in future temperature-precipitation scaling.
Mesoscale Convective Systems Impact Synoptic Wave Forecast
Scientists provide a process-level understanding of how mesoscale convective systems modify the evolution of the large-scale Rossby wave packet downstream and the jet stream.
How to Build a Climate-Resilient Water Supply
Scientists developed a new model to help water utility companies minimize weather-based disruptions to clean water access.
Seaports Could Lose $67 Billion Yearly from Natural Disasters
Small islands and low-income nations face the largest relative monetary losses to their ports and maritime trade.
Scientists Improve Hurricane Resilience in the Colombian Caribbean
Scientists are using acoustic sensors to collect data and improve hurricane preparedness and coastal resilience in the archipelago of San Andrés.
Far-Flung Forces Caused the 2021 Pacific Northwest Heat Wave
Air from thousands of kilometers away spiraled down to drape the Pacific Northwest in blistering heat.
Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East Face Rapid Climate Change
Observational and modeling studies identify the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East as a prominent climate change hotspot associated with weather extremes that have major impacts on society.
