It’s well known that hurricanes can substantially impact ocean surface temperature, but a new study shows they can also induce an ocean salinity response in unexpected ways.
New research uses Hurricane Harvey as a case study to demonstrate the devastating power of aerosols to supercharge tropical storms.
Developing trustworthy artificial intelligence for weather and ocean forecasting, as well as for long-term environmental sustainability, requires integrating collaborative efforts from many sources.
Thirty-nine years of satellite data reveal that the prevalence of intense hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons—category 3 and above on the Saffir-Simpson scale—is increasing.
A prototype model allows scientists to investigate how wind eddies and other atmospheric phenomena may affect the prevalence of heat waves and cold snaps in the Southern Hemisphere.
False springs and freak snowstorms can flood towns, ruin crops, and shut down electrical grids. One research team is studying past events to prepare for the future.
A study of extreme weather in South America shows seasonal and spatial patterns, which, if better understood, could help save lives and minimize damage to property.
