Nanomaterials Enable Dual-Mode Heating and Cooling Device

Engineers have demonstrated a dual-mode heating and cooling device for building climate control that, if widely deployed in the U.S., could cut HVAC energy use by nearly 20 percent. The invention ...

Once in a Lifetime Floods to Become Regular Occurrences by End of Century

Superstorm Sandy brought flood-levels to the New York region that had not been seen in generations. Now, due to the impact of climate change, researchers have found that 100-year and 500-year flood ...

Jaguars Robust to Climate Extremes but Lack of Food Threatens Species

Researchers lead a world-first investigation into the chances of wild jaguars surviving climate extremes with six scenarios modelling the behavior, mating, births of cubs, competition, illegal ...

Shift in Atmospheric Rivers Could Affect Antarctic Sea Ice, Glaciers

Weather systems responsible for transporting moisture from the tropics to temperate regions in the Southern Hemisphere have been gradually shifting toward the South Pole for the past 40 years, a ...
