After going through five years of drought, California is now under a new threat. Since the beginning of the year, California has experienced major storms, extreme flooding and severe landslides. New research has connected these to atmospheric rivers.
Researchers from the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory predict that though storms in the U.S. will be more powerful, they will have a smaller radius.
NASA released a collection of "terrifying" exoplanets like hot Jupiter HD 189733b where 'rains of terror' storms occur.
The storm may have passed, but the dangers aren't over yet. After surviving the worst of the hurricane, people now need to ensure they survive the aftermath with risks that include injuries, sickness and death.
USGS to develop a natio-wide map of induction hazards to quantify the effects of geomagnetic storms to electrical power grids.
Super Typhoon Nepartak is no anomaly. Rising oceanic temperatures are intensifying major currents, which will result in hotter and stormier weather over the next one hundred years.
Tropical cyclones - also known as typhoons - disperse powerful winds that can have a dramatic impact on nutrient cycling of an ecosystem. Island nations in the western Pacific and native plants in this region seem to be hit the hardest by these massive storms.
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.
Researchers from the Ecological Society of America propose new designs for next generation cities that will focus on working with nature, rather than against it.
Aerosol particles ejected into the air following volcanic eruptions can trigger rainfall shortages that ultimately alter river systems worldwide.
According to new models, storm surges are expected to increase significantly in areas that aren't usually susceptible to tropical storms. Researchers call these cyclones Gray Swans, and believe that as climate change increase, so does the possibility of these potentially devastating storms.
Scientists recently mapped the development of one of the world's largest consolidated piles of dust and erosion--China's vast Loess Plateau. In doing so, they studied both wind-related geology change and climate change.
It's been ten years since Hurricane Katrina made landfall in the western US. Now NASA and the US Geological Survey (USGS) have released detailed maps showing how radically the hurricane changed not only neighbor- and livelihoods, but also the geography of New Orleans itself.
For the last decade, astronomers have struggled to figure out what was causing the mysterious massive cyclones seen on Saturn. Now, new research has revealed that multiple small thunderstorms are to blame.
