Cloud confusion vexes global warming predictions

Estimates of global warming vary widely in large part due to the difficulty of modeling clouds and their effects in computer simulations. Now, as climatologists race to compile better cloud atlases, new research shows that previous worst case predictions of global temperature rise may be dramatically off-target. Clouds are the least-understood variable in the sky, […]

Changing Climate Behind Polar Ice Clouds?




The wispy, luminescent clouds that have been shining against the deep blue of the northern sky may be a symptom of the world’s changing climate, say scientists from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF). Known as noctilucent ice clouds, the researchers speculate that the relatively new phenomenon could be caused by a warming of the […]
