Above-average temperatures almost always follow tropical cyclones and can reach nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit above average, new research finds.

Did Sea Oxygen Levels Play Role In Earth’s First Mass Extinction?

Did Sea Oxygen Levels Play Role In Earth’s First Mass Extinction?

The first mass extinction on Earth may have been caused by abrupt changes in marine oxygen levels. The Late Ordovician mass extinction, which wiped out about 85% of marine species, occurred 443 million years ago

Climate Change Projected To Intensify Arctic Cyclones

Climate Change Projected To Intensify Arctic Cyclones

NASA scientists say that by the end of this century, spring cyclones in the Arctic will be stronger. This is because sea ice is melting and temperatures are rising quickly.
