In the brain, when neurons fire off electrical signals to their neighbors, this happens through an “all-or-none” response.
An unprecedented belt of brown algae stretches from West Africa to the Gulf of Mexico—and it’s likely here to stay.
The U.S. Forest Service’s Gila National Forest reported four naturally caused fires on July 4, 2019, and three of them generated enough smoke to be seen from space by satellite.
Fish die-offs in Wisconsin lakes are expected to double by mid-century and quadruple by 2100 due to warmer summer temperatures, according to a study published today in the journal Nature Climate Change.
The near-surface southerly wind is a key feature of East Asian summer monsoon (EASM) circulation, and a stronger EASM circulation leads to a northward shift of East Asian rainfall. Almost all climate models show an enhanced EASM circulation in a warmer climate, and previous studies attributed the enhanced EASM to the enhanced zonal land-sea thermal contrast.
An international team of scientists has shown it is possible to breed cattle to reduce their methane emissions.
A first-ever global analysis of cave drip waters has shown where stalagmites can provide vital clues towards understanding past rainfall patterns.
Many familiar grains today, like quinoa, amaranth, and the millets, hemp, and buckwheat, all have traits that indicate that they coevolved to be dispersed by large grazing mammals.
For those inclined, it’s the season for a cold, refreshing gin and tonic.
The positive-phase of Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) can indeed cause Eurasian summer nonuniform warming, according to Prof. LI Shuanglin, Dean of Atmospheric Science at the University of Geosciences (Wuhan) and Executive Vice-Director at the Climate Change Research Center, Institute of Atmospheric Physics, and one of the authors of a recently published study in Advances of Atmospheric Sciences.
