Our influence on the Earth’s environment has lasted for a century: the human impact on droughts and moisture patterns , researchers now say. US scientists used new analytic techniques and almost a thousand years of tree-ring data to build up a picture of drought and rainfall worldwide for the last century.

Cyclone Fani | IMD director says India at a stage where it can save most lives

Sat, 04 May 2019 22:53:00 +0200financialexpress (en)

AMITABH SINHA: In recent years, states have been successful in minimising damage caused by cyclones. How has this been achieved? This is because response actions and preparatory precautions are now systematically implemented. The target of our team is to ensure there is no casualty.

Coastal roads, shelters, warning, response… We’re at a stage where we can save most lives: IMD Director General K J Ramesh

Sat, 04 May 2019 22:52:00 +0200expressindia (en)

We have two principal cyclone seasons in India — in April-May over the Bay of Bengal, and October-November and partly December. This happens because of the movement of the sun from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere. It leads to the formation of a low-pressure area called the Intertropical Convergence Zone.

Human impact on droughts goes back 100 years

Thu, 02 May 2019 10:34:00 +0200technology (en)

The study compared real-world data with climate models, which predicted that human influences could be seen early in the 1900s and would increase. Clear evidence of a human “fingerprint” — a global pattern of regional drying and wetting characteristics of the climate response to greenhouse gases — emerged within the first half of the last century.

Study: Humans can be blamed for droughts, and they’re about to get worse

Thu, 02 May 2019 02:12:00 +0200fox59 (en)

In the 21st century, the societal impact of the meteorology community is vast, extending well beyond the daily “should I take my umbrella today?” Meteorologists today come from a wide array of disciplines, together working to observe, understand and predict the behavior of the weather, water and climate system that surrounds us.

Cheap and mobile filter makes wastewater drinkable in droughts and natural disasters

Sun, 07 Apr 2019 00:22:00 +0200abc-au (en)

A cheap filtration system resembling "a bunch of drinking straws" could hold the key to making salty wastewater pure enough for irrigation and even drinking, scientists say. Queensland University of Technology (QUT) researchers have built a pilot plant to test the technology that uses solar or waste heat to purify water through a membrane.
