Latest and Breaking Atmospheric Science News

Climate change caused by ocean, not just atmosphere, new Rutgers study finds
(Rutgers University) Most of the concerns about climate change have focused on the amount of greenhouse gases that have been released into the atmosphere. Read about a Rutgers study published in Science that reveals another equally important factor in regulating the earth's climate.

NJIT hosts the NJ mayors' Summit on Resilient Design
(New Jersey Institute of Technology) Local mayors and state and federal experts will gather at New Jersey Institute of Technology to discuss how the state has recovered from two of the worst natural disasters ever to hit New Jersey: Hurricanes Sandy and Irene.

NASA identifies ice cloud above cruising altitude on Titan
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA scientists have identified an unexpected high-altitude methane ice cloud on Saturn's moon Titan that is similar to exotic clouds found far above Earth's poles.

New study finds options for climate change policy are well characterized
(American Meteorological Society) Policy options for climate change risk management are straightforward and have well understood strengths and weaknesses, according to a new study by the American Meteorological Society Policy Program.

Icelandic volcano sits on massive magma hot spot
(University of California - Davis) New research from University of California Davis and Aarhus University in Denmark shows that high mantle temperatures miles beneath the Earth's surface are essential for generating large amounts of magma. In fact, the scientists found that Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano lies directly above the hottest portion of the North Atlantic mantle plume.

Climate change impacts countered by stricter fisheries management
(Wildlife Conservation Society) A new study has found that implementing stricter fisheries management overcame the expected detrimental effects of climate change disturbances in coral reef fisheries badly impacted by the 1997/98 El Nio, according to the Wildlife Conservation Society.

Satellite catches lingering remnants of Tropical Depression 9
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NOAA's GOES-East satellite has been keeping an eye on the remnants of Tropical Depression 9.

NASA sees Tropical Storm Ana still vigorous
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's TRMM satellite saw that Tropical Storm Ana was still generating moderate rainfall is it pulled away from Hawaii. The next day, NASA's Aqua satellite saw that wind shear was having an effect on the storm as it moved over open ocean.

Ambitious EU targets for renewable energies make economic sense
(Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ) Even beyond the year 2020 European energy policy will require ambitious expansion targets for renewables but also scope for their national implementation. That is the result of an international study lead by environmental economists at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research. The German Renewable Energy Law which has been much criticised recently is also not inconsistent with the idea of a European internal market, say the scientists.

Global boom in hydropower expected this decade
(Faculty of Science - University of Copenhagen) An unprecedented boom in hydropower dam construction is underway, primarily in developing countries and emerging economies. While this is expected to double the global electricity production from hydropower, it could reduce the number of our last remaining large free-flowing rivers by about 20 percent and pose a serious threat to freshwater biodiversity.
