An atmospheric scientist explains why water can do some strange-looking things at very cold temperatures, and what's different about snowfalls on Mars.
This summer, coastal seas to the north and east of New Zealand are even warmer than during last year’s marine heat wave.
Marine heatwaves may become the new normal for the Tasman Sea and the ocean around New Zealand, and oceanographers are developing models to better predict their intensity.
