Informing Action on a Historic Climate Agreement

The Paris Agreement on climate change goes into effect today, but while the agreement set ambitious targets for tackling climate change, scientists say there is a long way to go to achieve it. Research suggests pathways to get the world on track.

The Destructive Effects of Supercooled Liquid Water on Airplane Safety and Climate Models

Exploring the properties of supercooled liquid water - the bane of airplane wings and climate theorists - Sandia Labs is mounting an expedition to fly huge tethered balloons in Alaska this coming winter, where temperatures descend to 40 degrees below zero and it’s dark as a dungeon for all but a few hours of the day.

Indirect Effects of Rising CO2 Levels on Ecosystems More Important Than Previously Thought

TasFACEstormyscene.jpg

The indirect effects of rising CO2 levels, such as changes in soil moisture and plant structure, can have a bigger impact on ecosystems than previously thought. Understanding their importance, in comparison to the direct effects, will improve our understanding of how ecosystems respond to climate change.

Amazon Study Reveals That Rainstorms Transport Atmospheric Particles Essential for Cloud Formation

Figura_particulas_v6.jpg

Understanding how tiny particles emitted by cars and factories affect Earth's climate requires accurate climate modeling and the ability to quantify the effects of these pollutant particles vs. particles naturally present in the atmosphere. One large uncertainty is what Earth was like before these industrial-era emissions began. In a paper just published in Nature, scientists collaborating on the GoAmazon study describe how they tracked particles in the largely pristine atmosphere over the Amazon rainforest, which has given them a way to effectively turn back the clock a few hundred years.
