And now the weather ... on Mars
Blinding dust storms can seriously ruin your plans for a landing on Mars. ESA is adapting the global climate models that we use to forecast our weather on Earth for the turbulent conditions that Mars offers its future visitors. You could hardly call the weather on Mars pleasant, and presently it is far from predictable. As well as having an average surface temperature of -63°C, and a thin,...

Sophisticated ESA space weather tool under development
If a satellite encounters high-energy particles or other 'space weather' phenomena before ground controllers can take action, on-board electronics could be disrupted, scientific instruments damaged and, in very rare and extreme cases, spacecraft may even be lost. View News Article (2007-02-05)


New Sunspots Producing Space Weather
On Jan. 13, 2013, at 2:24 a.m. EST, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection or CME. Not to be confused with a solar flare, a CME is a solar phenomenon that can send solar particles into space and reach Earth one to three days later. View News Article (2013-01-15)


Tree hugging helps koalas keep their cool
Australia's koalas cope with extreme heat by resting against cooler tree trunks, new research has revealed. View News Article (2014-06-04)

Smartphones, tablets help UW researchers improve storm forecasts
The next advance in weather forecasting may not come from a new satellite or supercomputer, but from a device in your pocket. View News Article (2013-02-07)


Developing a better flight plan for weather forecasting
At MIT, planning for bad weather involves far more than remembering an umbrella. Researchers in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics are trying to improve weather forecasting using robotic aircraft and advanced flight plans that consider millions of variables. View News Article (2008-12-12)


Changing jet streams may alter paths of storms and hurricanes
The Earth's jet streams, the high-altitude bands of fast winds that strongly influence the paths of storms and other weather systems, are shifting-possibly in response to global warming. View News Article (2008-04-17)


CME To Pass Earth, Messenger and Juno
On July 16, 2013, at 12:09 a.m. EDT, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection or CME, a solar phenomenon that can send billions of tons of particles into space that can reach Earth one to three days later. View News Article (2013-07-17)


Scientists develop malaria forecasting tool to predict disease risk
A new tool to predict epidemics of malaria up to five months in advance has been developed by a scientist at the University of Liverpool. View News Article (2006-02-07)
