Climate changes make some aspects of weather forecasting increasingly difficult

22. Märts 2019 - 16:57
The ongoing climate changes make it increasingly difficult to predict certain aspects of weather, according to a new study. The study, focusing on weather forecasts in the northern hemisphere spanning 3-10 days ahead, concludes that the greatest uncertainty increase will be regarding summer downfalls, of critical importance when it comes to our ability to predict and prepare for flooding.

Climate Change: Heat-induced heart attack risk on the rise

12. Märts 2019 - 18:36
Heart attack, or myocardial infarction, is the number one cause of death worldwide. A new study shows that the risk of suffering a heat-induced heart attack has increased significantly in recent years. During the same period of time, no comparable changes in cold weather heart attack risks have been recorded.

Coal power stations disrupt rainfall: Global study

12. Märts 2019 - 13:59
Modern coal-fired power stations produce more ultrafine dust particles than road traffic and can even modify and redistribute rainfall patterns, a new 15-year international study shows. The study indicates filtration systems on modern coal-fired power stations are the biggest source of ultrafine particles and can have considerable impacts on climate in several ways.

It's raining on the Greenland ice -- in the winter

7. Märts 2019 - 16:14
Rainy weather is becoming increasingly common over parts of the Greenland ice sheet, triggering sudden melting events that are eating at the ice and priming the surface for more widespread future melting, says a new study. Some parts of the ice sheet are even receiving rain in winter -- a phenomenon that will spread as climate continues to warm, say the researchers.

Good news! Europe's electric grid will still work even as the world crumbles

6. Märts 2019 - 18:07
Temperatures may climb and seas may rise, but the lights (and, undoubtedly, the air conditioning) will still be on in nations with high capacities for wind and solar energy. New research suggests that these electricity systems should work almost equally well in both historical and future European climates despite changing weather patterns.

A faster, more accurate way to monitor drought

4. Märts 2019 - 22:48
A new drought monitoring method allows scientists to identify the onset of drought sooner, meaning conservation or remediation measures could be put into place sooner. The new method uses thermal stress -- the difference between air and surface temperatures at a site -- as a drought indicator.

Climate change makes summer weather stormier yet more stagnant

18. Veebruar 2019 - 22:32
Climate change is shifting the energy in the atmosphere that fuels summertime weather, which may lead to stronger thunderstorms and more stagnant conditions for midlatitude regions of the Northern Hemisphere, including North America, Europe, and Asia, a new study finds.
