Warmer oceans could produce more powerful superstorms

A warmer Atlantic Ocean could substantially boost the destructive power of a future superstorm like Hurricane Sandy, new research suggests. The researchers used a numerical model to simulate the weather patterns that created Sandy, with one key difference: a warmer sea surface temperature, as would be expected in a world with twice as much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This simulated warmer ocean generated storms 50 to 160 percent more destructive than Sandy.

NASA sees formation of unusual North Atlantic Hurricane Alex

The low pressure area known as System 90L developed rapidly since Jan. 13 and became Hurricane Alex on Jan. 14. Several satellites and instruments captured data on this out-of-season storm. NASA’s RapidScat instrument observed sustained winds shift and intensify in the system and NASA’s Aqua satellite saw the storm develop from a low pressure area into a sub-tropical storm. NOAA’s GOES-East satellite data was made into an animation that showed the development of the unusual storm.

Philippine coastal zone research reveals tropical cyclone disruption of nutrient cycling

The influence of Typhoon Haiyan damage on leaf nutrient traits in coastal habitats is explored by researchers in a new study. Their publication illuminates several ways in which a tropical cyclone disrupts nutrient flow through the ecosystem.

Normal weather drives salt marsh erosion

Coastal wetlands are in retreat in many locations around the globe — raising deep concerns about damage to the wildlife that the marshes nourish and the loss of their ability to protect against violent storms. The biggest cause of their erosion is waves driven by moderate storms, not occasional major events such as Hurricane Sandy, researchers now have shown.

Study ranks six American cities on preparation for climate change

A new study assesses the factors that affect climate change adaptation and ranks six American cities, finding that Portland, Boston and Los Angeles are all in the advanced to middle stages of planning for extreme weather events linked to climate change while Raleigh and Tucson are in the early to middle stages.

Human-caused climate change increased the severity of many extreme events in 2014

Human activities, such as greenhouse gas emissions and land use, influenced specific extreme weather and climate events in 2014, including tropical cyclones in the central Pacific, heavy rainfall in Europe, drought in East Africa, and stifling heat waves in Australia, Asia, and South America, according to a new report.

Ocean heat content reveals secrets of fish migration behaviors

A new method has been developed to estimate fish movements using ocean heat content images, a dataset commonly used in hurricane intensity forecasting. With Atlantic tarpon as the messenger, this is the first study to quantitatively show that large migratory fishes, such as yellowfin and bluefin tunas, blue and white marlin, and sailfish have affinities for ocean fronts and eddies.

New study questions long-held theories of climate variability in the North Atlantic

A new study challenges the prevailing wisdom by identifying the atmosphere as the driver of a decades-long climate variation known as the Atlantic Multi-decadal Oscillation. The findings offer new insight on the causes and predictability of natural climate variations, which are known to cause wide-ranging global weather impacts, including increased rainfall, drought, and greater hurricane frequency in many parts of the Atlantic basin.
