It has been nine days since Hurricane Maria blasted ashore in Puerto Rico with 150 mile per hour winds, ravaging the entire island and leaving residents without electricity, food and water.
With two months left, more records could fall before we're all done We've known for some weeks now that the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane season has been absolutely brutal.
We've now got yet another worrying sign that human-caused warming is causing the behemoth West Antarctic Ice Sheet to come unglued, threatening to raise sea level by 10 feet over time.
Here we go again? Following a mild and short-lived La Niña episode in 2016/2017, the climatic phenomenon stands a 55 to 60 percent chance of developing once again this fall and winter.
Last month was among the very warmest on record, according to two new analyses – and the heat is very likely to continue.
But despite claims to the contrary, one warmish summer in the Arctic does not repeal the long-term trend of human-caused warming Arctic sea ice has staged something of a short-term turn-around this summer.
As Hurricane Irma continued to churn north over Florida early in the morning of Sept. 11, the Suomi NPP spacecraft passed overhead and sent back this dramatic image.
Hurricane Irma is a true monster, exceeding the size of Florida itself, and threatening to flatten structures throughout the state with extreme winds.
As I'm writing this on Wednesday morning, the eye of Hurricane Irma — a “potentially catastrophic” Category 5 storm – has passed over the islands of Barbuda, Saint Barthelemy and Saint Martin, and was shortly headed for the Virgin Islands.
Smoke from the fires appears to have blown all the way across North America and more than half way across the Atlantic As of this afternoon, 77 large fires are burning across 1.4 million acres in eight western U.S.
As Harvey has lumbered to the northeast, the clouds have dissipated, finally giving satellites a clear view of what the 1,000-year flooding event in southeast Texas looks like.
Here at ImaGeo, one of my main goals is to share compelling imagery about the science of our planet. Even when the imagery is the main focus of a post, I've ordinarily included a fair amount of explanatory text.
As Harvey flooded Houston with relentless rains, the GOES-16 weather satellite watched from above One of the most destructive storms in U.S.
Millions of people across the United States will cast their gaze upward to watch tomorrow's total solar eclipse as it passes across the breadth of the nation.
That makes last month one of the warmest our planet has experienced since record-keeping began in 1880 Up in the high north, it was unusually cool last month.
Okay, I admit that I don't really know the odds of a snowball surviving in hell. But a new study suggests that's an apt way of describing the chances that 2014 through 2016's record-setting heat was natural.
The Pacific Northwest is sitting under a massive heat dome and a horrible pall of thick smoke from raging wildfires in British Columbia and Washington.
After a very long and strange trip, powerful Typhoon Noru has turned toward Japan. As of Wednesday afternoon in the U.S., the storm's maximum sustained winds were pegged at about 115 miles per hour, putting it in Category 3 territory.
But forecast tracks for Noru are literally all over the map, so it's too soon to tell whether the storm will make landfall there For ten days, Noru meandered aimlessly in the Pacific at no more than Category 1 strength, doing a big lazy do-si-do with a tropical storm but otherwise seemingly going nowhere.
Where the heck did this storm come from?! Seemingly out of the blue, Tropical Storm Emily has spun up off Florida's Gulf Coast and made landfall just south of Tamp this morning. Where the heck did this storm come from?
