New physics-based climate models led by Noah Diffenbaugh indicate that global warming is likely to cause a robust increase in the conditions that produce these types of storms across much of the country over the next century.
In the north-central and northeastern United States, extreme weather is more than four times as likely to occur than it was in the pre-industrial era, according to a new study by Noah Diffenbaugh.
The sometimes harrowing and always fascinating mountaineering adventures of paleoclimate researcher and PhD candidate Hari Mix are chronicled in the latest Gen Anthro podcasts.
Page Chamberlain named a fellow of the American Geophysical Union for his pioneering application of stable isotopes across the geophysical sciences.
Chris Field discusses the study, and examine state efforts to address the climate challenge with Craig Miller (science editor for KQED) & Matt Rodriquez, (California secretary for environmental protection).
Drilling deeper wells (the "dig deep" strategy) has become common in the search for clean water. But new research from the Stanford School of Earth Sciences has found that even deep wells might not remain arsenic-free.
Climate change occurring 10 times faster than at any time in past 65 million years, Stanford scientists say
Not only is the planet undergoing one of the largest climate changes in the past 65 million years, Stanford climate scientists Noah Diffenbaugh and Chris Field report that it's occurring at a rate 10 times faster than any change in that period.
Stanford students go deep to learn about the coral reefs of Palau
The notion that we'll avoid serious damage to the world's climate if we limit the warming of the atmosphere to a 2-degree-Celsius rise in temperature is untrue, says Stanford climate scientist Chris Field.
Field recognized for "significantly increasing our knowledge of how life on Earth responds to climate change and what reactions can be anticipated between the biosphere and the atmosphere".
