A novel approach to storm simulations could help prepare for increasingly heavy precipitation events.
When accompanied by a considerable amount of rainfall, ignition of wildfire by lightning over forested land may not be detected until days later.
27 people killed in a debris flow at Weiziping, near to Xi’an, in China.
120 people have been evacuated from a derailed train near Hudiksvall after heavy rainfall brought by Storm Hans caused embankment failure
Mimicking a randomized control trial of wildfires, scientists use satellites to uncover the key role of vegetation dryness in wildfire risk, aiding wildfire management and preparedness in California.
Millions of people, displaced from their home countries, take refuge in areas that are highly vulnerable to extreme weather.
Precipitation is partly used by vegetation and partly transformed into river flow. Quantifying the amount of water that is directly used by vegetation is essential to decipher climate change’s impact.
To enhance flood modeling, it is imperative to gain a comprehensive understanding of the causative mechanisms and cutting-edge models and tools, while also acknowledging their uncertainties.
A new non-column based spectral element implementation of cloud microphysics enables full 3D flexibility in computing clouds and improves computational efficiency.
Warming temperatures and less rain are causing flash droughts to develop more quickly and strike more often.
