5th Workshop on European Storms: Impacts and Predictability; Bern, Switzerland, 31 August to 2 September 2015.
A new study uses identical tests to evaluate the accuracy and performance of current models of Earth's magnetic field, then extrapolates the results to anticipated "petascale" supercomputers.
Methane emissions can drastically lower, or even reverse, the benefits of carbon sequestration in restored wetlands, according to new measurements from the Sacramento–San Joaquin Delta.
Years of data from a North Pacific ocean station show that the ocean's ability to pull carbon out of the atmosphere is controlled by biological and physical processes that change between seasons.
On the Puzzling Features of Greenland Ice-Core Isotopic Composition; Copenhagen, Denmark, 26–28 October 2015
AgMIP Workshop on Coordinated Global and Regional Integrated Assessments of Climate Change and Food Security; Aspen, Colorado, 13–18 September 2015.
Natural asphalt seeps on the ocean floor provide a stable home for diverse marine life that sequesters greenhouse gases.
Accounting for key soil and snow variables shows a much higher impact on simulated permafrost area than uncertainties in land cover and climate data.
Tropical Precipitation System Workshop 2015; Yokohama, Japan, 3–4 September 2015
The Obama administration's budget request includes funding for an initiative to vastly boost the number of water-monitoring sites used to forecast floods, droughts, and other hydrological impacts.
Scientists use very low and low-frequency radio signals to detect short gamma ray bursts and their impact on the low ionosphere.
Researchers are developing better ways to use satellites to understand space weather events that can interfere with technology.
Recent beetle epidemics have driven tree die-offs across North America, and previous studies predicted an increase in annual streamflow would follow—but a new study shows this may not be the case.
Scientists observe ice dynamics in water-terminating glaciers around the world to better understand how the process of subaqueous melt drives ice loss.
Satellite data and modeling reveal a trend toward coarser-grained, more-light-absorbent snow.
Spectral data from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft indicate that the properties of the depressions on Mercury's surface can vary within a single crater and that these differences may correlate to age.
The MADE Challenge for Groundwater Transport in Highly Heterogeneous Aquifers: Insights from 30 Years of Modeling and Characterization at the Field Scale and Promising Future Directions; Valencia, Spain, 5–8 October 2015
Fresh insight into pyrogenic carbon disappearance suggests that erosion is not responsible.
In the run-up to presidential primaries today in Florida, a bipartisan group of mayors there raised the issue by convincing moderators to pose questions about it in national debates and in other ways.
