Severe aircraft turbulence could become two to three times more frequent due to stronger wind shears within the jet streams generated by climate change.
Findings revealed that intensifying winds in the region may be influencing the turbulence of the current, rather than its flow rate.
Vultures are not good at flapping their wings, but they manage to spend long periods of time in the air by soaring. Researchers found that these birds stay aloft by making use of small-scale turbulence that produces uplift without flapping their wings.
Warm Atlantic Ocean waters are causing sea ice to melt in the Arctic, further contributing to the disappearance of this land mass, according to new research.
