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)

New instrumentation helps scientists better predict space weather
New instrumentation and observing techniques, being developed by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, are helping scientists better understand and predict space weather. View News Article (2006-12-12)

Disaster map predicts bleak future for mammals
MAMMALS could be at a greater risk of extinction due to predicted increases in extreme weather conditions, states a paper published today by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL). View News Article (2012-12-14)

High-Flying Balloons Begin Tracking Emerging Hurricanes
In a unique collaboration, U.S. and French researchers are launching large, specialized balloons into the stratosphere to drop nearly 300 instrument packages over wide swaths of Africa and the Atlantic Ocean. View News Article (2006-09-01)

NASA Releases Images of M-class Solar Flare
On April 2, 2014, the sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 10:05 a.m. EDT, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured imagery of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. View News Article (2014-04-03)

Age is more than a number — In barn owls, it reveals how susceptible one is to climate change
Fluctuations in weather and the environment affect survival and reproduction of animals. But are all individuals within a population equally susceptible? Theory on the evolution in age-structured populations suggests not - those life stages that are more important for overall fitness should be less susceptible to environmental variation than other life stages. View News Article (2007-01-11)
