A new study suggests that even hotter events will follow unless greenhouse gas emissions are reduced.
Convection-driven Hadley cells are expanding poleward. Scientists now may have uncovered part of the reason why.
Sixth Meeting of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project; Oslo, Norway, 21–22 June 2016
More clustering of clouds due to higher temperatures increases the likelihood of heavy downpours.
Scientists recreate ocean climate data to explore historical warming—and cooling—trends in Earth's seas.
Researchers explain how a new radiative scheme can be incorporated into global weather and climate models to better capture the effect of clouds on climate.
A study of Earth's atmospheric response to major volcanic eruptions seeks to reconcile contradictions between observations and climate models.
A new analysis of cloud composition and behavior suggests that scientists have overestimated the ability of a type of mixed-phase ice-and-water cloud to mitigate climate change effects.
A new study finds that humans likely have triggered the last 16 record-breaking hot years on Earth, up to 2014.
Researchers construct a world where nuclear energy everywhere is replaced with coal, with stark consequences for human health and the environment.
