  • CSIRO dam break modelling to help flood planning

    CSIRO scientists have developed powerful modelling techniques to help understand the full impact of flooding that occurs when dams collapse. The research has been helping China’s disaster management authorities better understand the full impact of the catastrophic flooding that would occur if one of China’s, and the world’s, biggest dams collapsed. The work could also be ...

  • Earthquake model could help reduce risks in Middle East

    A detailed database of active seismic faults in the Middle East, and a model that maps earthquake risk and evaluates mitigation strategies, were presented by scientists at The Seismological Society of America annual meeting last week (13–15 April). But experts have warned that the model will only be of value if ...

  • Promising results of environment monitoring satellite Jason-2 one week after launch

    One week has gone by since the launch, and everything is going very well with Jason-2. While the satellite is not yet in its final orbit (to be reached on 3 July), the first test measurements and calibrations have started. EUMETSAT, CNES, NASA and NOAA are cooperating to test every component of the ground segment, and results are looking very promising. The first Doris (Doppler Orbitography and ...

  • Arctic Ocean will be ice-free in 30 years

    New research says the Arctic might lose most of its ice cover in summer in as few as 30 years instead of the end of the century as was previously predicted. The amount of the Arctic Ocean covered by ice at the end of summer by then could be only about 1 million square kilometres, or about 620,000 square miles, down from today’s 4.6 million square kilometres, or 2.8 million square miles. While ...

  • Energy Department advances carbon capture and storage research on two fronts

    Forty-three research projects that will advance carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies while providing graduate and undergraduate student training opportunities at universities across the country will be supported by $12.7 million in U.S. Department of Energy funding announced today. Spread over three years, the regional sequestration training projects and funding will be managed by the ...

  • Ancient glacial sediments drag down Louisiana`s sinking coast

    Sediments deposited into the Mississippi River Delta thousands of years ago when North America's glaciers retreated are contributing to the ongoing sinking of Louisiana's coastline, finds new research by NASA and scientists at Louisiana State University. The weight of these sediments is causing a large section of Earth's crust to sag at a rate of 0.04 to 0.3 inches a year, the study determined. ...

  • NASA: Global Warming Will Bring More Severe Storms

    NEW YORK, New York, August 30, 2007 (ENS) - The most violent severe storms and tornadoes may become more common as Earth’s climate warms, say scientists with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, NASA, using a new climate model. The scientsts predict that in a warmer climate, stronger and more severe storms can be expected, but with fewer storms overall. Previous climate model ...

  • GSSI unveils the digital antenna technology

    Dual Frequency, Smart Antenna The 300/800 MHz dual-frequency antenna is GSSI’s first digital antenna.

  • 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 ...

  • NASA Study Projects Warming-Driven Changes In Global Rainfall

    A NASA-led modeling study provides new evidence that global warming may increase the risk for extreme rainfall and drought. The study shows for the first time how rising carbon dioxide concentrations could affect the entire range of rainfall types on Earth. Analysis of computer simulations from 14 climate models indicates wet regions of the world, such as the equatorial Pacific Ocean and Asian ...

  • Thinning glaciers `endangering South Asian water supply`

    New evidence that Himalayan glaciers are shrinking has added weight to concerns that there could be severe water shortages in the region by 2030. Researchers drilling an ice core in the 6,050 metre-high Naimona'nyi glacier near Tibet were expecting to find radioactivity left by atomic tests carried out 50 years ago. Instead they found little more than background levels of radioactivity. The ...

  • Understanding events of the 1930s, 1950s may help in forecasting future drought

    During the iconic Dust Bowl, great clouds of dust swirled east out of the U.S. Northern Plains, blackening skies as far away as New York. Drought conditions set up in 1932 and didn’t ease for seven years. Just a decade later, another severe drought hit, this one scorching the Southern Plains and Southwest. ESRL scientists seeking to improve today’s drought warning systems recently turned their ...
