PITTSBURGH- A research group from the CERN Cloud experiment, including scientists from Carnegie Mellon University's College of Engineering and Mellon College of Science, have uncovered the processe

After a year of driving global temperatures to unprecedented warmth, the giant El Nino weather event in the Pacific is officially over, raising hopes that drought-hit regions may be in for some rel

Japan will see mostly average to warmer weather from June to August, the official forecaster said on Wednesday.

The strongest El Nino in nearly 20 years, which damaged crop production in Asia and caused food shortages, has ended, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) said on Tuesday.

Think of it as Mother Nature’s roller-coaster ride: the shift between the weather patterns known as El Nino and La Nina that, at their worst, can cause havoc worldwide.

After the fourth attempt, NASA successfully launched a super pressure balloon from Wanaka airport in New Zealand. Its mission is to perform near-space scientific investigations.

On the heels of one of the strongest El Niños on record, climate scientists reveal the world may soon be bracing itself for the arrival of La Niña.

Water evaporating from the ocean sustains precipitation on land. This ocean-to-land moisture transport leaves an imprint on sea surface salinity (SSS). Thus, the question arises of whether variations in SSS can provide insight into terrestrial precipitation. This study provides evidence that springtime SSS in the subtropical North Atlantic ocean can be used as a predictor of terrestrial precipitation during the subsequent summer monsoon in Africa.
