An Air Quality Alert was mistakenly issued for Kings, Tulare and Kern county this afternoon and is not in effect for these counties. However, The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District does have an Air Quality Alert in effect through Wednesday, August 23rd for Merced county, Madera
The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District has issued an Air Quality Alert starting on August 19, 2017, due to smoke impacts from the South Fork wildfire for Merced, Madera, and Fresno Counties. This Air Quality Alert is in effect until Wednesday, August 23rd. The Mariposa County Air Pollution Control District has also
...COASTAL FLOODING POSSIBLE THROUGH MID-WEEK... The highest high tides of the month will continue through Wednesday. These tides will roll in on top of sea levels raised by an eddy moving through the area. Water levels around the islands are running as much as a foot above the values shown by tide predictions.
A study of flood damage in Florida proposes prioritizing property buyouts based on flood risk, ecological value, and socioeconomic conditions. Forecasters say an above-normal hurricane season is likely in the Atlantic Ocean this year, while a rising sea level is making Florida increasingly vulnerable to dangerous flooding.
The next major volcanic eruption could kick-start chemical reactions that would seriously damage the planet's already besieged ozone layer. The extent of damage to the ozone layer that results from a large, explosive eruption depends on complex atmospheric chemistry, including the levels of human-made emissions in the atmosphere. Using sophisticated chemical modeling, researchers explored what would happen to the ozone layer in response to large-scale volcanic eruptions over the remainder of this century and in several different greenhouse gas emission scenarios.
Using high-speed photography and digital image correlation techniques, engineers show that friction along a faultline has a complex evolution during an earthquake that is dictated, in part, by slip velocity: the sliding of the two sides of the fault against one another.
Researchers show that lake sediments preserved within ancient supervolcanoes can host large lithium-rich clay deposits. A domestic source of lithium would help meet the rising demand for this valuable metal, which is critical for modern technology.
The causes of coastal flooding in the Maldives are more complex than previously thought, according to a new study. Researchers examined wave and sea level data around historic flood events and found that multiple factors contribute to flooding in the Indian Ocean island chain, which has an average land elevation of just one meter.
By 2100, two in three people living in Europe may be affected by weather-related disasters, according to a new study which sheds light on the expected burden of climate change on societies across Europe. The projected increases were calculated on the assumption of there being no reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and no improvements to policies helping to reduce the impact of extreme weather events (such as medical technology, air conditioning, and thermal insulation in houses).
Humanmade and naturally occurring earthquakes in the central US share the same characteristics, researchers have found. This information will help scientists predict and mitigate damage from future earthquakes.
Like tourist season, wildfire season is also in full swing in British Columbia. Whereas tourists are welcomed to the Canadian province, wildfires are not. In British Columbia alone there are close to 500 wildfires active to date.
Scientists probing under the seafloor off Alaska have mapped a geologic structure that they say signals potential for a major tsunami in an area that normally would be considered benign. They say the feature closely resembles one that produced the 2011 Tohoku tsunami off Japan, killing some 20,000 people and melting down three nuclear reactors. Such structures may lurk unrecognized in other areas of the world, say the scientists.
New data reveal an unprecedented depiction of a region of partially molten rock deep within the Earth, which appears to be feeding material in the form of a plume to the surface, where Iceland is located.
Geoscientists have long puzzled over the mechanism that created the Tibetan Plateau, but a new study finds that the landform's history may be controlled primarily by the strength of the tectonic plates whose collision prompted its uplift. Given that the region is one of the most seismically active areas in the world, understanding the plateau's geologic history could give scientists insight to modern day earthquake activity.
