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.
Joshua trees, a beloved and iconic desert species in California, is currently in decline due to drought and climate change.
Prehistoric climate changes that took place thousands of years ago are apparently hidden inside Indian cave deposits (not pictured), and may hold clues to better predicting future climate in the region, according to new research.
It seems that extreme weather including torrential rains and blazing heat is becoming the new norm, and now new research indicates that more than half of hot extremes are caused by climate change.
As the global climate continues to change and extreme weather becomes the new norm, annual rainfall is expected to increase in certain parts of the tropics. Now new observations have shown that more big thunderstorms are behind this boost in total tropical rainfall.
The Karakoram glacier anomaly, known as the "cold case" of the climate science world, has finally been solved.
Although it would seem that warming temperatures associated with climate change would most greatly influence animal species like birds, a new study shows that precipitation is actually the key to bird adaptation.
A new study finds that as temperatures rise, it will rain more and snow less, causing the total amount of water in rivers to decline.
