Great Slave Lake’s huge cold water mass shielded it from impacts of the rapidly warming climate—until now.
A new study quantifies the tropospheric and surface impacts of extreme stratospheric wave events and evaluates their representation in state-of-the-art climate models.
Videos of debris flows and mudflows from Storm Hilary.
Airborne dust not only causes disease, it also menaces transportation on land, sea, and air; disrupts renewable energy systems; transports pathogens and toxic substances; and poses many other hazards.
Heat waves can happen in the depths, invisible at the ocean surface.
A speleothem has revealed rapid periods of warming across the interior of the continent during the last glacial period, corresponding to similar events recorded in Greenland ice.
Satellites can see NO2 pollution from space, but can they detect individual oil and natural gas operations, and are the measurements accurate?
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.
Enhanced tree growth could significantly offset carbon emissions, but some researchers say it’s not enough to compete with forest disturbances.
Si el cambio climático anula el ciclo estacional de hielo y deshielo, se desencadenaría un ciclo de retroalimentación de derretimiento del hielo marino en algunas partes del Ártico canadiense.
