Footage of an amazing and equally terrifying dust devil is making rounds on the internet. Dust devils on Mars form the same way they do in deserts on Earth.
World Bank sees cities around the globe may not be prepared for extreme and unexpected weather risks but there are several ways on how to twist the scenario.
The strange radio signals detected in 2009 might have just come from extreme lightning storms in an exoplanet, and is unlikely to be alien communication, revealed a new study by scientists from Scotland.
Tonight on "Wild Things" Dominic Monaghan travels to Brazil in search of the giant anteater. Along the way he encounters some horrific creepy crawlies and witnesses small crocodiles called caimans attacking capybara--rodents of unusual size. His adventure doesn't stop there, as he gets a taste of Sao Paolo's nightlife and gets stuck herding cattle in an electrical storm.
Global salt marsh erosion is largely driven by regular weather patterns, rather than the occasional violent storm.
Following the deadly tornado that tore through the city of Joplin, Mo., in 2011, researchers have developed new building codes they hope will better protect people in the face of a EF-5 category tornado.
Even corals adapted to warmer waters, such as those living along reefs in Kimberly Australia, are particularly vulnerable to climate change and increased rates of bleaching.
A genetic analysis of modern and ancient Yakutian horses revealed the cold-weather animals rapidly evolved to survive extreme temperatures of eastern Siberia.
Nature World News recently spoke with Mike Carmon, a meteorologist who studies the very extreme weather atop New Hampshire's Mt. Washington. Scientists in 1932 clocked winds there of 231 mph; researchers have had a wild-and-wooly view of weather there ever since then.
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.
New research indicates that extreme climate swings - lasting tens of millions of years - were too much for the dinos and kept them out of the tropics, solving one of science's longstanding mysteries.
Earlier this week, the NOAA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite reached its orbital position, not circling the Earth or Mars but instead orbiting the Sun itself, at a stunning 1 million miles from Earth.
The iconic Great Barrier Reef in Australia avoided being put on the World Heritage Site's "in danger" list, based on a UNESCO draft report, however concerns were still raised about its future in the long term.
With climate change most associated with warming temperatures, scientists and the public alike tend to focus on the dangers of extreme weather such as heat waves, which is increasingly becoming the new norm. However, new research reveals that simple cold weather is more deadly than extremely hot days.
