Water on Mars

Water on Mars Facts

Scientists have discovered that the upper atmosphere of Mars contains much more water than previously thought. Also made the assumption that once the "Red Planet" was more water than now.

According to data obtained by the European Space Agency, in the atmosphere of Mars is saturated steam. Until recently it was thought that such a pair can not exist in the cold atmosphere, since any pair turns to ice at low temperatures.

It seems that previous climate models significantly underestimated the properties of the planet and must be reconstructed with the new data: water vapor still

Giant trees dying because of climate change

Giant trees dying because of climate change weather and climate

As the observations of experts, has recently risen dramatically deaths of giant trees and trees with an impressive age. This fact can not be taken calmly, as together with the tree-giant killed an entire mini-ecosystem, as in the crowns of trees and their roots live several species of birds, many insects and other living organisms.

This problem applies to almost all existing types of forests in the world, say the Australian University of James Cook and his colleagues in Washington, USA. Their research, they started with a forest

July 2, 2013. The intense heat, which lasts for a few days remain until the middle of the week, warns the National Weather Service. Over the past days in many cities were updated daily temperature maxima.

At the airport in Las Vegas on Saturday passenger received a fatal heat stroke after the temperature exceeded +46,1 ° C. As noted by meteorologists, such a high temperature that day was observed for the first time since 1994.

NASA climate satellite will launch on October 27

NASA climate satellite will launch on October 27 This is interesting

In October, the climate will be launched satellite, intended to help forecasters predict extreme weather conditions and monitor climate change. First satellite will measure both short-term and long-term weather and climate change.

Necessary to launch such a satellite is dictated by millions of losses and damages suffered by the U.S. in 2011 as a result of natural disasters. The project is scheduled for a period of 5 years, and its cost will be $ 1.5 billion.

Satellite launch will be made October 27, 2011 from Vandenberg Air Force Base

Faults along the mountainous Sierra Nevada threaten earthquakes

Faults along the mountainous Sierra Nevada threaten earthquakes Natural Disasters

Two faults along mountain valleys Carson and Antelope are a danger to people living in the east of the Sierra Nevada.

To study the risk of earthquakes were dug trench depth of 30 to 45 meters. In the Antelope Valley, the scientists found the confirmation of two major earthquakes, accompanied by earthly tears. Rift at 23 kilometers, most likely the result of an earthquake measuring 7.5. Radiocarbon dating of soil samples revealed that the earthquakes occurred in 1350 and 6250 years ago.

Scientists continue to study faults in the Carson

The Japanese earthquake has caused waves in Norway

July 2, 2013. An earthquake biggest load assumes a region located near the epicenter, and sometimes a push, you can register and at a great distance. But seismic waves emitted by an earthquake, in fact diverge around the world several times and bend around the globe, turning the planet into a large bell ringing. The stronger the earthquake, the louder he "calls." A earthquake magnitude 9.0, which occurred off the coast of Japan March 11, 2011, was a very, very powerful.

Seismometers are

El Niño warmed globally

July 2, 2013. Thanks dendrochronological analysis, and measurement of the radiation balance of the Earth's surface after the eruption of volcanoes Chinese scientists can say with confidence that the unusual activity of the El Niño phenomenon is a result of global warming. Another group of researchers suggested that climate model, which can be used to predict the next period of activity of the natural anomalies.

El Nino — a natural phenomenon, often accompanied by numerous victims, causing epidemic disease and even provoking armed conflict. The essence of the climate anomaly is this: the El Niño Southern Oscillation, or —

The study of ancient lake in Antarctica may explain the future of Earth

The study of ancient lake in Antarctica may explain the future of Earth Scientists have shown

British scientists are hoping that the ancient lake Ellsworth, located at a depth of 3 kilometers under the cover of ice, will help in the study of climate change, sea level change and the emergence of new forms of life.

Ice cover over the lake does not produce geothermal heat of the earth, protecting the lake from freezing. In October, a team of scientists travel to Antarctica for the first phase of the study, which will cost at least £ 7 million. In order

Floods and landslides in Central America

Floods and landslides in Central America, Natural Disasters

Heavy rains have passed over Central America. Over the past week 80 people were killed by floods and landslides, destroyed bridges and flooded roads. Since there is no sign that the rain will subside, local authorities announced the alarm in the mountainous regions, where about 42 million.

On Monday, October 17 President of El Salvador said that the country's state of emergency. 32 people were killed and three were missing, about 32 thousand people were evacuated. In Guatemala, 29 people died, 13 — in Honduras, 8 — in Nicaragua. However, these figures
