  • USGS Groundwater Model: New Tool for Communities in Northern and Central Arizona

    A new groundwater model of the interconnected aquifers in central and northern Arizona was released today by the U.S. Geological Survey, following a multi-year development effort that involved the Arizona Department of Water Resources and regional cooperators.  The computer model, known as the “Northern Arizona Regional Groundwater-Flow Model,” simulates how recharge from ...

  • Near-real time snow information

    Satellite information on snow cover is now available through ESA's GlobSnow project soon after it snows. As well as posing a hazard to communities through transportation shutdowns and floods, snow cover is one of the most important elements influencing the planet's climate, meteorology and water systems. Understanding snow conditions helps us to predict floods and advance climate studies. ...

  • New inventory of Himalayan glaciers, snow

    A new survey of the Hindu Kush Himalayas (HKH) using satellite imagery establishes the extent of the glaciated area of the of the region and helps fill a crucial knowledge gap in the region, referred to as a 'white spot' in data in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s 2007 report. ...

  • Satellite measurements show hidden water content of snow

    As spring arrives, many people are generally interested in the snow vanishing. Others are more interested in the water that is stored in the snow layer. Satellite measurements can show the extent and water content of the snow coverage, and where it will melt. Scientists from SMHI are part of a European research project aiming to develop new, simpler ways of using satellite data about snow and ...

  • Global warming brings more snow to Antarctica

    Although it sounds paradoxical, rising temperatures might result in more snowfall in Antarctica. Each degree of regional warming could increase snowfall on the ice continent by about 5 percent, an international team of scientists led by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research now quantified. Published in the journal Nature Climate Change, their work builds on high-quality ice-core data ...

  • Sooty Himalayan snow `warms climate, alters monsoons`

    Black carbon landing on snow may be accelerating the melting of Himalayan glaciers more than atmospheric soot or even greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), according to a study. The effects of this carbon, a key component of soot, could change the timing and intensity of the monsoons; increase the ...

  • NASA Cold Weather Airborne Campaign to Measure Falling Snow

    Beginning Jan. 17, NASA will fly an airborne science laboratory above Canadian snowstorms to tackle a difficult challenge facing the upcoming Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) satellite mission -- measuring snowfall from space. GPM is an international satellite ...

  • BacTech Awarded Contract to Clean Up Snow Lake Arsenopyrite Stockpile

    BacTech Environmental Corporation ("BacTech" or the "Company"), (CNSX: BAC) today announced that it has been awarded the contract by the Mines Branch of the Manitoba Department of Innovation, Energy and Mines, to remediate a stockpile of arsenopyrite concentrate located in the community of Snow Lake. The contract is subject to negotiating a suitable agreement between BacTech and the Manitoba ...

  • Climatronics Corporation offers a cost-effective solution for measuring precipitation (rain/snow) in remote locations and in virtually any environment.

    Climatronics Corporation’s 360 Series Precipitation Gauges are a cost-effective solution for unattended measurement of rain and snow in remote locations. The gravity-actuated self-tipping bucket empties itself once a precise amount of precipitation has been collected, automatically recording increment of volume that has been discharged. Since regular operator maintenance is not required, this ...

  • USGS & NOAA collaborate with Canada on climate data

    The US Geological Survey is joining with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Environment Canada (EC) in jointly operating and calibrating high-tech climate monitoring stations. NOAA recently installed a U.S. Climate Reference Network sensor in Egbert, Ontario, while EC set up a Canadian Reference Climate Station at the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) ...

  • New climate data reflect trends of a warming planet

    In 2013, the vast majority of worldwide climate indicators—greenhouse gases, sea levels, global temperatures, continued to reflect trends of a warmer planet, according to indicators in the State of the Climate in 2013 report by the American Meteorological ...

  • Climate data shows clear signs of warming

    However you view the evidence, whatever set of measurements you examine, the picture that emerges is consistent: the Earth is heating up. The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reports: “In 2013, the vast majority of worldwide climate indicators − greenhouse gases, sea levels, global temperatures, etc − continued to reflect trends of a warmer ...

  • Detecting river floods using low-resolution satellite data

    The methodology for detecting river floods using Terra low-resolution data was developed and tested by specialists of the Risk Monitoring and Forecasting Section under the Fire and Civil Defense Department of the Volgograd Region (Russia) Administration. This year"s spring flood ...

  • Arctic literally on thin ice, according to new satellite data

    The latest data from NASA and the University of Colorado at Boulder's National Snow and Ice Data Center show the continuation of a decade-long trend of shrinking sea ice extent in the Arctic, including new evidence for thinning ice as well. The researchers, who have been tracking Arctic sea ice cover with satellites since 1979, found that the winter of 2008-09 was the fifth lowest maximum ice ...

  • NASA Opens New Era In Measuring Western U.S. Snowpack

    A new NASA airborne mission has created the first maps of the entire snowpack of two major mountain watersheds in California and Colorado, producing the most accurate measurements to date of how much water they hold. The data from NASA's Airborne Snow Observatory mission will be used to estimate how much water will flow out of the basins when the snow melts. The data-gathering technology could ...

  • Greenland then and now - what lies beneath the melting ice cap?

    2010 was an exceptional year for Greenland's ice cap. Melting started early and stretched later in the year than usual. Little snow fell to replenish the losses. By the end of the season, much of southern Greenland had set a new record, with melting that lasted 50 days longer than average. An image just released by NASA was assembled from microwave data from the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager ...

  • 2007 was tied as Earth`s second warmest year

    Climatologists at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City have found that 2007 tied with 1998 for Earth’s second warmest year in a century.  Goddard Institute researchers used temperature data from weather stations on land, satellite measurements of sea ice temperature since 1982 and data from ships for earlier years. The greatest warming in 2007 occurred in the ...

  • Desert dust cuts Colorado river flow

    Snow melt in the Colorado River basin (USA) is occurring earlier, reducing runoff and the amount of crucial water available downstream. A new study shows this is due to increased dust caused by human activities in the region during the past 150 years. The study, led by a NASA scientist and funded by the agency and the National Science Foundation (NSF), showed peak spring runoff now comes three ...
