We can't change the weather. But understanding how COVID-19 behaves in different conditions can help us respond to the pandemic.
Some rainstorms drench you in a second, while others drop rain in a nice peaceful drizzle. A meteorologist explains how rainstorms can be so different.
High temperatures, periods of increased relative humidity and more rainfall are likely to happen more in Nigeria's coastal region under future global warming.
'Wet-bulb' temperature records show that deadly thresholds for heat and humidity are arriving faster than anticipated.
Winter is flu season – could it be coronavirus season as well? The research is mixed, but other factors besides temperature and humidity have more to do with the spread of SARS-CoV-2.
Carbon dioxide makes up less than one-twentieth of 1% of Earth's atmosphere. How does this relatively scarce gas control Earth's thermostat?
The world's fastest-growing cities are in the tropics. They are highly exposed to climate change, especially as urban heat island effects and humidity magnify the impacts of increasing heatwaves.
Recent changes to the ball seem to be juicing hitters' stats. But could other factors, like the climate and advanced analytics, also be playing a role?
An electric fan cools you down in extreme heat, but not if you're old.
Detecting drier or wetter conditions is crucial for insect survival. We've long known they can do this – now researchers have discovered the genetic and neural basis for their humidity-sensing system.
Increases in humidity caused as a result of climate change are reducing labour productivity and it’s only likely to get worse…
