Research shows that the distribution of temperate hardwoods (sugar maple, red maple and yellow birch) could be shifting northward, which would have serious consequences for the boreal forest.
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.
The forest fires of the summer of 2023 in Québec were devastating. It was the worst year in 50 years. But with climate change, the worst may be yet to come.
Storm Ciarán unleashed extremely strong and destructive winds in parts of the southern UK and northern France – here’s why.
Storm Ciarán is the UK’s third named winter storm since September.
More than 800 lives were lost in the Royal Charter storm but it also led to improvements in weather forecasting.
Solar power generation varies greatly depending on the weather. A new study suggests in some parts of Australia, solar has a bright future.
Britain doesn’t have huge violent twisters like the US. But it does have lots of little tornadoes.
Transboundary climate risks can cross borders, continents and oceans to affect communities on the other side of the world. Africa’s new roadmap seeks to address this.
The preliminary global-average temperature anomaly for September is a shocking 1.7°C. These are the drivers of current record-breaking heat.
Dams are usually built to withstand heavy rainfall or drought.
An ‘omega block’ helped Storm Daniel wreak devastation in Libya.
Further research is needed in order to quantify the costs of extreme heat so we can reduce its damaging effects now and in the future.
Can Hurricane Fiona give us a hint about what future climate change might bring to Eastern Canada? Unravelling this question could lie in understanding ancient storm records.
Heat pumps are essential for the large-scale adoption of more carbon friendly heating systems and recent research suggests a way forward for reducing one of the technology’s biggest hurdles — frost.
A new study shows that river barriers, similar to those built by beavers, can protect areas at risk of flooding by storing water upstream.
Humans (particularly those in the Northern Hemisphere) generally prefer the heat, a bias which has hampered effective climate communications for decades.
Now is the perfect time to read Jansson’s novel – a book that will make you nostalgic for childhood summers.
As extreme weather events increase in frequency and severity, many Canadians are still unaware of how to prepare for a natural disaster.
Many heat-related health problems can be avoided by adopting a healthy, active lifestyle. But the younger generation is less active than previous generations, and therefore more vulnerable.
