Satellite Launches with Mission to Monitor Space Weather

We know too well that weather on Earth can affect our daily lives. But what about weather in space? Solar flares, geomagnetic storms, and other types of space weather have the potential to disrupt a range of critical infrastructure, including telecommunications, power grids, and GPS applications. Such disruptions could pose significant threats to our safety, security,

Climate Intervention Is Not a Replacement for Reducing Carbon Emissions

WASHINGTON – There is no substitute for dramatic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate the negative consequences of climate change, a National Research Council committee concluded in a two-volume evaluation of proposed climate-intervention techniques.  Strategies to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere are limited by cost and technological immaturity, but they could contribute to

Study Reveals Industrial Aerosol Emissions Has Changed the Relationship Between Temperature and Precipitation in the Northern Tropics

Stony Brook, NY, Feb. 9, 2015 – An international team of scientists, including Minghua Zhang, Dean and Director of Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS), has found that man-made aerosol emissions from industrial processes have changed the relationship between temperature and precipitation in the northing tropics. The findings, published early online in Nature Geoscience,

Study on Geoengineering to Be Released Feb. 10

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3, 2015—Proposals to technically intervene with the climate – known as “geoengineering” – have long been controversial among scientists.  However, the failure to significantly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions has forced further scrutiny of these climate intervention strategies.  A committee of the National Research Council has evaluated technologies that involve either removing carbon

Melting Glaciers Increase the Flow of Carbon to Downstream Ecosystems

ANCHORAGE, Alaska—Melting glaciers are not just impacting sea level, they are also affecting the flow of organic carbon to the world’s oceans, according to new research that provides the first ever global-scale estimates for the storage and release of organic carbon from glaciers.
