A new study finds that including Himalayan topography and land-atmosphere interactions improves climate models.
A team of scientists finds a year-by-year record of climate history spanning the past 17,000 years at the bottom of a South Island lake.
As floods become more frequent around the globe, scientists work to pinpoint what puts certain regions at risk.
A weak La Niña is expected to further dry out southwestern and Gulf Coast states.
Third Annual Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) Meeting; Venus, Florida, 22–26 February 2016
A new climatology tool uses satellite data to map precipitation in a data-sparse region of the Pacific Ocean.
Researchers take a retrospective look to see if precipitation and flooding due to El Niño could have been predicted a priori.
Hydrology Days 2015; Fort Collins, Colorado, 23–25 March 2015
When rivers run low, they threaten ecosystems, economies, and the communities who depend on them. Scientists need to determine how climate change alters this process, but to do so, they'll have to abandon a long-held assumption.
Basing forecasts on data that preserve variations over space yield more reliable predictions than using standard numerical measures of climatic cycles' intensity.
