A new NASA research says that climate change will cause more rainfall in tropical regions that are typically sunny.
Future climate could exacerbate hourly precipitation, driving up to 180 percent increase of extreme summer rainfall in some parts of the United States by 2100.
Rainbows are one of the most striking gifts of nature. There are not many stories in hstory that talk about rainbows. The most popular one links to the biblical story of Noah and his ark and its promising ending. Well, rainbows have a little more than that. The science behind rainbows is quite fascinating. However, only in the 17th century people began to get curious about the formation of the rainbow.
A species of vesper bat has largely expanded its range across Europe since the 1980s. Researchers say climate change is likely the cause.
That magnetic moon, that big pizza pie -- is affecting rainfall on Earth as well as the already-known tidal functions.
Water in tanks and fountains throughout villages of Spain turned red following last autumn's rainfall but researches insist it's not a sign of the apocalypse.
With heavier rainfall sweeping through the African savanna, one would expect to see more thriving populations of trees. However, it turns out trees' deep roots are actually disadvantageous and don't allow the plants to suck up abundant water resources.
Warmer climates are yielding more female hatchlings, researchers explain in a new study. This could have serious impacts on the survival of struggling loggerhead sea turtle populations in Florida.
Fire ants in South Carolina team up to survive flooding waters.
Aerosol particles ejected into the air following volcanic eruptions can trigger rainfall shortages that ultimately alter river systems worldwide.
California's Sierra Nevada snowpack is lower than it has ever been in the past 500 years – a result of the region's three-year long drought, which doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon, say researchers.
Tropical mountain regions in Ecuador face significant impacts from climate change. Over the past two hundred years, vegetation on the Chimborazo volcano in Ecuador has migrated over 500 meters upslope.
Erosion can happen at a much fast rate when extreme weather events occur. Since sediment takes many years to accumulate, this kind of weather has the potential to cause a whole lot of years' worth of damage.
It turns out that even weeks, months, and years after an earthquake, an area can have an increased chance of landslides following the additional shake-up of heavy rain. The earthquake caused the slide, though.
