In 2007, there were 874 weather-related disasters worldwide, a 13-percent increase over 2006 and the highest number since the systematic recording of natural perils began in 1974. Weather-related disasters around the world have been on the rise for decades (see Figure 1): on average, 300 events were recorded every year in the 1980s, 480 events in the 1990s, and 620 events in the last 10 years.

Agriculture in India depends heavily on weather and climate conditions. Weather forecasts are useful for decisions regarding crop choice, crop variety, planting/harvesting dates, and investments in farm inputs such as irrigation, fertilizer, pesticide, herbicide etc.

A new analysis of ice cores conducted by scientists of National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the University of Washington (UW) show the existence of connection of the world's coldest continent Antarctica to global warming, as well as to periodic events such as El Ni

A new study based on four years of collecting ice core data says human activity and the El Nino weather pattern over the last century have warmed West Antarctica, part of the world's coldest continent. Major El Nino event from 1939 to 1942 and greenhouse emissions from cars and factories responsible for the West Antarctic warmeing. The study is carried out by scientists David Schneider and Eric J. Steig of the National Center for Atmospheric Research and published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, August 12, 2008 doi:10.1073/pnas.0803627105.

To meet the requirements of the research community, a high resolution daily gridded temperature data set for the Indian region was developed. For this purpose, daily temperature (maximum, minimum and mean) data of 395 quality controlled

This paper reviews the status of weather and climate services in Europe and Central Asia (ECA).Worldwide, the accuracy and value of weather and climate services are rising, bringing great economic benefits. However, many national hydrometeorological

Changes in extreme weather and climate events have significant impacts and are among the most serious challenges to society in coping with a changing climate. This report provides current assessments of climate change science to inform public debate, policy, and operational decisions.
