A rare submarine landslide provides researchers with a reference point for modeling the biggest tsunamis.
A new algorithm incorporates randomness into stream channel formation and suggests the approach represents regions with variable flood magnitudes better than standard models.
Multiple factors often interact to amplify the effects of severe storms, droughts, and other extreme water-related events.
On Barro Colorado Island in the Panama Canal, scientists map lightning strikes and find that they kill mainly the loftiest trees, likely disturbing the forest ecology.
The editors of a new book describe how to characterize uncertainty in natural hazards, the incorporation of uncertainty into modeling, its contribution to better decision-making, and research needs.
As climate change worsens wildfire impact, scientists use satellites to study climate-fire interactions.
New study suggests that the frequency of lightning strikes will increase as the climate continues to warm.
