Professional meteorologists who have written children's books about weather discuss the subject matter of each author's books, their motivation for writing their books, and the reactions they've received. The panelists also share previews of pages from their books.
20%—The approximate decline in ozone depletion during recent Antarctic winters compared to 2005, according to new research published in Geophysical Research Letters that also confirms the decrease is the result of declining levels of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).
Explore how Penn State’s online Weather Forecasting Certificate program can turn weather enthusiasts and those who work in weather-related careers into weather information power users to enhance their hobbies or careers.
Scientists have encountered difficulty determining long-term hurricane trends “Only hurricanes that affected people’s lives were known and reported,” notes Suzana Camargo of Columbia University. However, Camargo and colleagues created an algorithm that identified tropical cyclones back to 1850 in the Twentieth Century Reanalysis (20CR) dataset, which uses historical global climate observations to reconstruct weather patterns.
The Weather Band is pleased to announce the winners of our 2022 Photo Contest!
Bow echoes indicate the potential for severe weather. Ted Best documents the evolution of a bow echo MCS across southern Minnesota.
The second annual event of the “Eye Towards the Sky” speaker series covers hurricanes and the effects of a warming atmosphere on their intensity and frequency.
Temperature swings can be subtle, stunning, or somewhere in between, depending in large part on what you’re used to. In a moist tropical climate, like the one that prevails over much of Hawai’i, the typical difference between nighttime lows and afternoon highs may be less than 20°F.
