Climate Change Will Threaten Fish by Drying Out Southwest U.S. Streams, Study Predicts
Fish species native to a major Arizona watershed may lose access to important segments of their habitat by 2050 as surface water flow is reduced by the effects of climate warming, new research suggests. View News Article (2014-08-19)


Loss of Eastern Hemlock Affects Peak Flows after Extreme Storm Events
The loss of eastern hemlock could affect water yield and storm flow from forest watersheds in the southern Appalachians, according to a new study by U.S. Forest Service scientists at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory (Coweeta) located in Otto, North Carolina. View News Article (2014-08-13)


Dust -- and the microbes hitching rides on it -- influences rain, climate
Dusty air blowing across the Pacific from Asia and Africa plays a critical role in precipitation patterns throughout the drought-stricken western U.S.  View News Article (2014-08-13)


Conservation scientists asking wrong questions on climate change impacts on wildlife
Scientists studying the potential effects of climate change on the world's animal and plant species are focusing on the wrong factors, according to a new paper by a research team from the Wildlife Conservation Society, University of Queensland, and other organizations. View News Article (2014-07-31)


New research suggests Saharan dust is key to the formation of Bahamas' Great Bank
A new study suggests that Saharan dust played a major role in the formation of the Bahamas islands. Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science showed that iron-rich Saharan dust provides the nutrients necessary for specialized bacteria to produce the island chain's carbonate-based foundation.  View News Article (2014-07-25)


Size and age of plants impact their productivity more than climate, study shows
The size and age of plants has more of an impact on their productivity than temperature and precipitation, according to a landmark study by University of Arizona researchers. View News Article (2014-07-21)


Precipitation, not warming temperatures, may be key in bird adaptation to climate change
A new model analyzing how birds in western North America will respond to climate change suggests that for most species, regional warming is not as likely to influence population trends as will precipitation changes. View News Article (2014-07-14)


Low back pain? Don't blame the weather
Australian researchers reveal that sudden, acute episodes of low back pain are not linked to weather conditions such as temperature, humidity, air pressure, wind direction and precipitation. View News Article (2014-07-10)


With climate change, heat more than natural disasters will drive people away
Although scenes of people fleeing from dramatic displays of Mother Nature's power dominate the news, gradual increases in an area's overall temperature - and to a lesser extent precipitation - actually lead more often to permanent population shifts, according to Princeton University research. View News Article (2014-07-01)


Iconic Minnesota conifers may give way to a more broad-leafed forest in the next century
Over the next 100 years, Minnesota's iconic boreal forest and deep snow may change into a deciduous forest with winters warm enough for some precipitation to fall as rain, according to a new U.S. Forest Service assessment of the vulnerability of Minnesota forests to climate change. View News Article (2014-06-20)
