    Rice University fluid dynamicists Ebrahim Nabizadeh (seated) and Pedram Hassanzadeh and colleagues found that climate change will increase the size of stalled high-pressure systems that can cause heat waves, droughts and other extreme weather.
  • Rice University fluid dynamicists have found a mathematical formula called a scaling law that relates the size of atmospheric blocking events to the width, latitude and strength of the jet stream, all of which are well-studied and measured.
