  • The Meteodrone in the spotlight of SRF Einstein

    Various observational data sources are currently available for weather forecasts. Besides atmospheric remote sensing data from satellites and ground instruments, surface data is measured at ground stations. However, a crucial layer, the so-called Planetary Boundary Layer (<2km above ground), is only sporadically covered by radio soundings. For this reason, existing weather models fail to ...

  • New ESRL computing specialists advance federal efforts to link, improve earth system models

    A coupled air-ocean-wave model lets scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory better predict the impact of hurricanes on the Gulf Coast. Researchers working with a NASA atmospheric general circulation model can swap in different chemistry packages, depending on the problem they are studying. People downloading data generated for the next Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC, ...

  • Climate Proof Cities: Practical guidelines for climate proof cities

    Cities are vulnerable to the effects of climate change. The most efficient way to make cities more climate proof is through numerous relatively small and local measures, which can often be carried out parallel to major maintenance or renovation work. These were the findings of a final report published recently by the Climate Proof Cities research programme. Climate Proof Cities (CPC) has yielded ...

  • Weather Analytics Expanding Network for Global Climate Intelligence

    Weather Analytics announced today the integration of new content from 32,000 weather stations, gathered from 53 public and private networks, into its enhanced weather collection database. Weather Analytics is adding the quality-assured data, selected from the Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System (MADIS), for integration with the company’s online platform at ...

  • Global warming may make monsoons harder to predict, say researchers

    Monsoons will be more difficult to predict in the future because of global warming, researchers have warned. Scientists will need improved weather prediction models, conclude researchers from the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), in a report published in Geophysical Research Letters last month (23 April). Reliable prediction of monsoon rains five to seven days in advance is ...

  • Researchers get flood forecasting off the ground

    Scientists have built a model that accurately predicts floods without data from the ground. Until recently, ground observations were needed alongside satellite data to build a full-enough picture to model climate and extreme weather events. And as worldwide annual losses due to flooding are predicted to reach at least US$1 trillion in 2050, scientists are seeking a solution for countries that ...

  • The realm of earthworms: NASA gets down to the nitty-gritty

    When you hear the word 'NASA,' do visions of rocket ships dance in your head? Well think again. From now on, it's 'earthworms.' That's right. Using space technology, NASA is now studying the realm of earthworms, millipedes, and springtails -- the soil beneath your feet -- with a project called OMEGA (Observing Microwave Emissions for Geophysical Applications). Why would an agency whose cosmic ...

  • New forecasting method: Predicting extreme floods in the Andes mountains

    Predicting floods following extreme rainfall in the central Andes is enabled by a new method. Climate change has made these events more frequent and more severe in recent decades. Now complex networks analysis of satellite weather data makes it possible to produce a robust warning system for the first time, a study to be published in the journal Nature Communications shows. This might allow for ...

  • MARWIS supports efficient de-icing of aircrafts

    Let´s think about a wintry scene at the Schiphol Airport (Amsterdam, NL): De-iceing machines surrounding an aircraft engulfed in clouds of smoke. Workers are using large-nozzle hosepipes to douse the aircraft in a special fluid that will de-ice it and keep it de-iced so that it can safely depart. As you may can imagine, the de-icing process takes time as well as manpower and significantly ...
