What if you were being at the beach, swimming in the water, when all of sudden the ocean seems to disappear. You would need to start running very quickly away from the shore. What happened? Whenever a hurricane or a tsunami is for forming/coming to the shore the water will get sucked up from the shore to storm and it’ll come back very quickly. How does the water come back very quickly? The winds would have to be blowing in the opposite direction from the storm for the water to come back.
The polar jet stream is a high-altitude air current that separates low pressure Arctic Air, from warmer, high pressure air to the south.When the jet dips far south, it can deliver blasts of cold and snow to temperate latitudes; a north-jutting ridge promotes heat and drought. Such extreme weather has been happening a lot lately. Scientists are debating whether that’s primarily due to the shifting cycles of the Pacific or whether the melting Arctic plays a key role.
Weather forecasting can’t prevent bad weather. It can, however, spot when storms are on the way. The more accurate those forecasts can be, the better. Accurate weather forecasting requires good science. Weather forecasting is very hard because you have to be correct almost every time.
A new study has found that levels of commercial fish stocks could be harmed as rising sea temperatures affect their source of food.Such disturbances in energy transfer can potentially lead to a decrease in food availability for top predators, which in turn, can lead to negative impacts for many marine species within these food webs. Whilst climate change increased the productivity of plants, this was mainly due to small blue-green algae. Marine ecosystems are already experiencing major impacts from global warming, making it vital to better understand how these results can be extrapolated to ecosystems worldwide.
