The Landslide Blog is written by Dave Petley, who is widely recognized as a world leader in the study and management of landslides. The availability of high temporal and spatial resolution monitoring technologies, most notably terretrial laser scanning (Lidar) and doppler radar, has transformed our ability to understand rockfalls. These systems can be deployed to […]
Researchers used deep learning to fill in the gaps of “patchy” water quality data, revealing decades-long trends toward warmer and less oxygenated rivers that could have worrisome consequences.
Location, location, location. Surface temperature patterns play a fundamental role in Earth’s energy budget.
Two decades’ worth of satellite data suggest that the rainfall rates of tropical cyclones might be decreasing relative to background levels.
A new study examines the effects of spatiotemporal precipitation uncertainty on key hydrologic processes, including runoff and soil moisture, in a comprehensive sample of 289 cryosphere regions.
Dust from Alaska is particularly effective at forming ice crystals because it contains biological components, researchers believe. The finding has implications for cloud physics and our planet’s climate.
Climate change may double the risk of heat-related illness at Grand Canyon National Park by the end of the century.
Changing climate in the Arctic leads to a shorter snow season but deeper snow in the depths of winter. Under the insulating snow, biological processes are accelerated leading to higher nutrient availability and carbon losses.
Smaller cities in these regions are less likely to have infrastructure to deal with extreme climates.
Heat released by old and inefficient Chicago buildings could, if harnessed, be an energy solution.
