Scientists identify jet stream patterns that can cause simultaneous heatwaves in different regions


A study conducted two years ago found that certain kinds of waves in the atmospheric circulation can become amplified and then locked in place for extended periods – triggering concurrent heat waves in different breadbasket regions. ... Scientists have been able to pick out global patterns in the Rossby waves only in recent years, largely because the Earth’s atmospheric circulation is vast and complicated. "...

Greenland ice melt caused by more sunny days, not catastrophic climate change, scientists discover


“The state shift in atmospheric circulation is unprecedented in the observational record, which goes back as far as 1850,” he said. ... Though the culprit of the altered atmospheric circulation patterns remains uncertain, the British scientists believe the decrease of the Arctic sea ice cover is to be blamed. "...

Living in noisy urban areas linked to higher stress levels, lack of exercise and greater stroke risk, caution scientists


This can then lead to better blood pressure regulation, enhanced circulation and stronger immune health. ... To note, the scientists found that atmospheric pollution had no significant effect on stroke risk. "...

The Effects of Weather on Health and How to Prepare


If you get tired easily, chances are your circulation isn't all up to par. Warm weather promotes blood circulation, but in these winter months it is more important than ever to be proactive about exercise. Even light exercise like yoga and stretching make a considerable impact on circulation. "...

Other planets may be home to more diverse life forms than Earth, suggest scientists


But Olson argued that not all oceans are hospitable due to different atmospheric conditions. Therefore, in finding habitable planets, it is important to look not just at planets in the Habitable Zone, but also at those that possess suitable global (i.e. atmospheric) and ocean circulation patterns regardless of their location. "...

New research finds it was a LACK of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that led to climate change in ancient times


This narrowed in on a timeframe when the Earth experienced extreme dips in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. ... The researchers commented that the less dusty climate conditions after this altered MPT could be caused by ice sheet formation and atmospheric circulation, too. "...

Cradles of life? New research says oceans on exoplanets may harbor more life than Earth


Ocean upwelling supports life Olson and her colleagues concentrated on the ocean circulation on exoplanets for their research. Ocean circulation plays an important role in sustaining life and biodiversity in ocean waters. "...

Radiation contaminated more than 20,000 square miles and 43 million people in Japan: EU report


As explained in a Science for Environment Policy News Alert, the study calculated the atmospheric deposition of the two radionuclides using a widely respected circulation model and focused specifically on emissions in gaseous form. ... You can view the full study as it was published in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics here: http://www.atmos-chem-phys.net . "...

La Niña looms as states grapple with extreme weather conditions


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said that surface temperatures in the Pacific have dropped to below-average levels, indicating that a La Niña is on the horizon. ... La Niña to bring more storms, dry conditions According to NOAA, temperatures dropped across the eastern and central Pacific regions in August while atmospheric circulation exhibited anomalies over the surface. "...

By studying ancient evidence, researchers discover that climate change ebbs and flows over time


Their modeling matched the data and caused cooling in the Southern Ocean but left the remaining ocean water circulation unchanged. The influx of freshwater caused rapid warming in the tropical Pacific, setting off a chain of events in atmospheric circulation that led to much higher temperatures over the North Atlantic and the “collapse of rain-bearing winds over tropical Australia.” "...

Spill from sinking Sanchi oil tanker could reach Japan within the month


According to a team of scientists from the National Oceanography Center (NOC) and the University of Southampton , their latest ocean model simulations allow them to better assess the potential impact of local ocean circulation on the possible spread of pollutants from the sunken Sanchi oil tanker. ... Primarily the location of the original oil spill and the way in which atmospheric conditions were affecting ocean circulation at that time.” "...

How building a massive solar farm in the Sahara desert could disrupt the climate


But according to Smith and Lu, these studies assumed that atmospheric conditions and ocean temperatures would remain constant . ... The new heat source in the Sahara would also reorganize global air and ocean circulation. "...

Fascinating video shows humpback whales using "bubble-net fishing" to catch their prey


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that the number of humpback whale sightings around Hawaii dropped in recent years. ... Olaf Meynecke, a research fellow in marine science at Griffith University in Australia, who was not part of the team, said that whales depend on recurring environmental conditions and oceanographic features, such as the changing seasons, temperature, circulation and nutrient cycles. "...

Mercury pollution contaminating Arctic wildlife, causing death and reproductive problems among bird populations, studies show


Due to atmospheric circulation and other factors at play in the Northern hemisphere, high amounts of mercury deposits have been found to accumulate in the Arctic, raising concerns for the breeding populations of these birds. "...

Urban land development – not "climate change"– has resulted in shorter, more intense wet seasons in Florida


The study appeared online in NPJ Climate and Atmospheric Science. Changing land cover leads to changes in climate The Florida peninsula has a unique climate with a distinct wet season because of its proximity to the equator. ... Meanwhile, other researchers have observed that thunderstorms would split and diffuse as they approach urban areas, possibly due to disruptive circulation from developed land cover. "...

DIESEL engines now cleaner for the environment than gas engines


At present, Hayes is conducting a similar investigation in Canada’s Far North, which is “the final resting place of atmospheric pollution”. ...

New science admits the climate underwent a radical, "extreme weather" change over 14 million years before humans ever lived


It is believed that these changes may have pushed tropical atmospheric circulation, causing a major shift in the precipitation patterns over large parts of Southeast Asia. "...

95% of status quo scientists FAIL this simple SCIENCE QUIZ... (take it yourself and see why)


As reported online March 22, 2017 in Nature, the researchers found that the lungs produced more than half of the platelets — blood components required for the clotting that stanches bleeding — in the mouse circulation. ... This first chart reveals how atmospheric CO2 was at nearly 7000 ppm in the Cambrian period, over 4000 ppb during the Devonian period, over 2500 ppm during the Jurassic period and has plummeted to nearly its lowest point in Earth’s history today, at around 400 ...

Solar flare could unleash nuclear holocaust across planet Earth, forcing hundreds of nuclear power plants into total meltdowns


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has even issued an urgent warning about solar flares due to strike in 2012 and 2013. ...
