Ozone Hole appears over Western Canada
Satellite observations acquired on February 12 and 13 data assimilation confirmed predictions made by ECMWF's CAMS, proving its model really works and can accurately predict these kinds of events. Below is a comparison of the model prediction based 00:00 UTC, February 9 and valid on 03:00 UTC, February 13, of the very short range (3 hour) forecast from the model analysis relying on several satellite observations from February 12 and valid for February 13, 03:00 UTC and of measurements from the OMI satellite instrument on February 13. Ozone mini-holes at high northern latitudes are relatively rare as the topography of the continents surrounding the Arctic generally disrupts the polar vortex and prevents the formation of polar stratospheric clouds involved in the chemical reactions that produce chlorine atoms, which are responsible for fast ozone depletion in the mini-holes.  According to Copernicus, their forecast shows that this mini ozone ho…

Satellite observations show sea levels rising, and climate change is accelerating it
Sea level rise is happening now, and the rate at which it is rising is increasing every year, according to a study released Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Researchers, led by University of Colorado-Boulder professor of aerospace engineering sciences Steve Nerem, used satellite data dating to 1993 to observe the levels of the world's oceans.
Changes in sea level observed between 1992 and 2014. Orange/red colors represent higher sea levels, while blue colors show where sea levels are lower.
Using satellite data rather than tide-gauge data that is normally used to measure sea levels allows for more precise estimates of global sea level since it provides measurements of the open ocean. The team observed a total rise in the ocean of 7 centimeters (2.8 inches) in 25 years of data, which aligns with the generally accepted current rate of sea level rise of about 3 millimete…

The Hayward fault near San Fransisco is headed for a Disaster New Earthquake Simulations show
In the next 30 years, there is a one-in-three chance that the Hayward fault will rupture with a 6.7 magnitude or higher earthquake, according to the United States Geologic Survey (link is external)(USGS). Such an earthquake will cause widespread damage to structures, transportation, and utilities, as well as economic and social disruption in the East Bay.
Lawrence Livermore  (LLNL) and Lawrence Berkeley (link is external) (LBNL) national laboratory scientists have used some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers to model ground shaking for a magnitude (M) 7.0 earthquake on the Hayward fault and show more realistic motions than ever before. The research appears in Geophysical Research Letters (link is external).
Past simulations resolved ground motions from low frequencies up to 0.5-1 Hertz (vibrations per second). The new simulations are resolved up to 4-5 Hertz (Hz), representing a four…

The Melting Of Arctic Permafrost Could Release a  ‘Mercury Apocalypse’

There’s a ticking time bomb composed of Mercury hidden beneath our planets Permafrost. Scientists warn that climate change could accelerate the release of toxic Mercury, and it’s worrying. Despite the fact that Mercury has a lot of good uses, its toxic to humans and animals and can pose a great threat to our planet’s ecosystems. As melting permafrost releases mercury, eventually some of it will make it into the food chain—and into animals such as the Alaskan caribou. As noted by National Geographic, “in some forms, mercury is a powerful neurotoxin, and in children it can harm brain development, affecting cognition, memory, language and even motor and visual skills. Even in adults, excessive amounts can hamper vision, speech and muscle movements, compromise the reproductive and immune systems, and cause cardiovascular problems.” If global warming ends up melting the permafrost—the permanently frozen surface layer of t…

Snow Covers The Sahara Desert For The Second Time In Less Than A Month
For the second time in less than a month, parts of the Sahara Desert were covered by a snow blanket, and this is only the fourth time in nearly forty years, which according to experts is worrying. In January of 2018, we published an article about the city of Aïn Séfra, the so-called “door to the Sahara Desert”, and how its inhabitants were surprised after a few inches of snow covered the surrounding area. Photographers took advantage of the situation and started recording the unusual event, snapping stunning images of the Sahara Desert covered in snow. Surprised by the phenomenon, the inhabitants of Aïn Séfra made sure to record the event. As noted by the Daily Mail, children could be seen playing on the snow-covered sand dunes just outside the town, while others posed on the snow to document the rare event. Now, for a second time in less than a month, snow has returned to the Sahara, and the result is another batch…

Sinkhole opens into giant, 20-foot high cave under Texas neighborhood
WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas - Texas environmental consultants were busy exploring a 170-foot long cave that was found after a portion of a residential street in a Williamson County neighborhood north of Austin collapsed earlier in the week. The cave stretches eastward from the site of a sinkhole, located in a neighborhood in the Brushy Creek area. The height at some points of the cave reaches 22 feet, with an average height of 10 to 15 feet, according to a county news release. The county said structural engineers will explore the site to help determine the cave’s stability. They’ll also decide how to repair the sinkhole, which could take several weeks as the assessments and repairs take place. The Brushy Creek area and Cedar Park are hosts to several caves, including a cave near the Brushy Creek greenbelt that is home to bats.

Earth's Magnetic Flip and what it means for Human Civilization
Earth's magnetic field has flipped many times throughout history and is now on its way toward another reversal. While the topic was highly controversial in the 20th century, numerous studies over the past decades have proven this as a fact, that it's happening now and even suggested it can flip very quickly, within a human lifetime. How far are we from the actual flip is hard to tell but there are signs that suggest we are well on its way and speeding toward it. It's also hard to say what exactly this means for human life on Earth simply because there is no one alive today who lived through the last one. However, as we move forward toward the next flip, more and more things are becoming painfully obvious - like the weather. New evidence indicates that the intensity of Earth's magnetic field is decreasing 10 times faster than normal, leading some to believe it could happen in a not that distant future. We…

Stratospheric Warming Threatens Europe with Big Freeze
Weather models are suggesting a very high probability of a rare North Pole weather phenomenon called Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) taking place later this month and bringing prolonged bitterly-cold temperatures to the United Kingdom and parts of Europe. Such weather event hasn't occurred since 2010 when it brought coldest March for 51 years to Scotland. "There is a clear indication of an imminent split in the polar vortex, currently located over central-western Greenland. The main center will drift to the Canadian Plains, while a new area will form over northern Russia," TWC forecaster Dr. Dave Reynolds said. "This will drift towards the Caspian Sea, then westwards across the Mediterranean, Iberia and out to the near Atlantic during the next two weeks, weakening as it does so." The polar vortex is expected to split during Thursday, February 8 and Friday, February 9, and become well developed by Sunday, …
