Global climate models don’t let us zoom in on the fine details. A new set of high-resolution climate models for Australia is solving this problem.
Muttonbird ‘wrecks’ are becoming more common. Despite speculation about many possible causes, the evidence points to changes in the Arctic ocean ecosystem from where the birds migrate to Australia.
Storm Ciarán unleashed extremely strong and destructive winds in parts of the southern UK and northern France – here’s why.
Storms are the greatest threat to beach erosion, not sea level rise, research reveals. This is the longest continuous beach monitoring survey in the Southern Hemisphere.
More than 800 lives were lost in the Royal Charter storm but it also led to improvements in weather forecasting.
Britain doesn’t have huge violent twisters like the US. But it does have lots of little tornadoes.
Local communities need to be warned more clearly and effectively if there is a threat of a storm surge and of coastal flooding.
Climate assemblies may just provide the breakthrough required to develop popular, just and sustainable climate and energy policies.
Public interest in climate change and global warming peaks after bushfires and lasts for months, research reveals. But Australians do not respond to storms and floods in the same way.
A new study shows that river barriers, similar to those built by beavers, can protect areas at risk of flooding by storing water upstream.
2016 was the world’s warmest year on record, due in part to a very strong El Niño event. But 2023 (and 2024) could beat that record – what should we expect?
Nationally, 57% of the population says they’re not prepared for a flood disaster. Surveys and disasters show that those most at risk are least prepared.
Each rainbow is personal – the rainbow you see isn’t exactly the same rainbow the next person sees. It’s all in the eye of the beholder.
Extreme weather is a threat to the UK’s electricity system – and climate change is likely to make it even worse.
This year’s Sierra snowpack is looking a lot like 1983’s, and that was a year of flooding and mudslide disasters. A meteorologist explains what’s ahead.
Cyclone Ilsa has intensified off the Western Australian coast and is now classed as a category-five system. How did this happen?
Researchers are turning to computer models, drones and other methods to improve tornado forecasting.
An expert explains why the UK’s winter has been relatively calm.
The Met Office has predicted that England is to be affected by flooding this February.
The growing threat of flash flooding as a result of more intense rapid rain bursts means the city needs to update its flood defences.
