Precipitation variability in Northeast, Southwest linked in 1,000-year analysis
An analysis of precipitation data collected from a lakebed in New York and a Rhode Island estuary has provided a link between the variability of precipitation in the Northeast with that of the Southwest. The results validate climate models that predict an increasing number of extreme weather events. View News Article (2011-11-09)

Researchers Identify Driver for Near-Earth Space Weather
New findings indicate that the aurora and other near-Earth space weather are driven by the rate at which the Earth's and Sun's magnetic fields connect, or merge, and not by the solar wind's electric field as was previously assumed. View News Article (2006-12-12)

UI researchers evaluate best weather forecasting models
Two University of Iowa researchers recently tested the ability of the world's most advanced weather forecasting models to predict the Sept. 9-16, 2013 extreme rainfall that caused severe flooding in Boulder, Colo. View News Article (2014-02-07)

ESA studies the Sun-Earth climate link
Meteorologists can no longer view the Earth as an isolated system. Both long-term climate changes and day-to-day weather show links with the Sun`s activity. Scientists therefore study the nature of those links intensely. With data from ESA`s spaceprobes SOHO, Cluster, and Ulysses, we now have the information we need to solve the mystery of how the Sun`s activity affects the climate here on Earth....

New Supercomputer Enhances Reliability of Weather Predictions
Sweden's new supercomputer for weather forecasting will greatly improve prediction reliability. An enhanced and powerful computational package, tailored especially for the needs of the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, SMHI, is now installed at the National Supercomputer Center, NSC, sited at Linköping University. View News Article (2005-02-14)

Satellite Image Shows Eastern U.S. Severe Weather System
A powerful cold front moving from the central United States to the East Coast is wiping out spring-like temperatures and replacing them with winter-time temperatures with powerful storms in between. An image released from NASA using data from NOAA's GOES-13 satellite provides a stunning look at the powerful system that brings a return to winter weather in its wake.  View News Article (2013-01-31)

Coral reef reveals history of fickle weather in the central Pacific
For more than five decades, archaeologists, geographers, and other researchers studying the Pacific Islands have used a model of late Holocene climate change based largely on other regions of the world. View News Article (2006-05-17)

EUMETSAT Hosts Pan-European Young Meteorologist's Competition
EUMETSAT will celebrate the launch of Meteosat-9, by sponsoring a Young Meteorologist's Competition promoting meteorology and the many uses of weather satellite data to school students and teachers. EUMETSAT is launching an Internet-based pan-European school competition for 15 and 16 year olds aimed at identifying Europe's most talented and diligent "Young Satellite Meteorologists." View News Article (2004-10-26)

Detecting clouds from both sides now
"Bows and flows of angel hair, and ice cream castles in the air;" we've looked at clouds that way. But the interface between clouds and clear air isn't as well-defined as these imaginative shapes might lead us to believe. View News Article (2012-03-13)

CERN, eat your heart out? U of A research team helps identify an interstellar particle accelerator
Newly released research in Nature Communications from the University of Alberta has identified the existence of a giant cosmic accelerator above the Earth. View News Article (2013-12-05)
