While the Madden-Julian Oscillation’s precipitation variations are likely to increase in intensity under a warmer climate, wind variations are likely to increase at a slower rate, or even decrease.
A new study shows what nine different world regions have contributed to climate change since 1900, and what will happen moving forward.
They used a reliable tropical weather pattern called the Madden-Julian Oscillation, which can influence weather in distant parts of the Earth by sending out powerful atmospheric waves.
Their solution is a combination of creativity, chemistry and physics, along with Arun Kota’s extensive research in “superomniphobic” surfaces that repel many different kinds of liquids.
It offers answers to questions that have puzzled policymakers, researchers and regulatory agencies: How much total methane is being emitted from natural gas operations across the U.S.? And why have different estimation methods seemed to disagree?
A $30 million NSF-funded field campaign, launching Nov. 1, aims to discover why thunderstorms in a particular region of Argentina are among the most extreme in the world.
TEMPEST-D took its first images of Hurricane Florence earlier this month, just hours after its instrument was turned on.
The National Science Foundation has awarded about $3 million to support the new program, called InTERFEWS.
