I lived in Anchorage for 10 years and spent much of that time climbing in and on the spine of the state, the Alaska Range. Three times I stood atop the mountain the Athabaskans call Denali, “the great one. ” During that decade, I mountaineered for more than half a year on that magnificent state’s highest peaks. Alaska contains the largest coastal mountain range in the world and the highest peak in North America. It has more coastline than the entire contiguous 48 states combined and is big enough to hold the state of Texas two and a half times over. Now, a dozen years after I left my home state and landed in Baghdad to begin life as a journalist and nine years after definitively abandoning Alaska, I find myself back. That summer in 2003 when my life in Alaska ended was an unnerving one for me. It followed a winter and spring in which I found myself protesting the coming invasion of Iraq in the streets of Anchorage, then impotently watching the televised...
In fact, a warming world could mean less overall snow in a given year, but no reprieve from extreme snow events, at least in places like Boston. To science, not all snowstorms are the same: average snowfall will probably decrease in most places as the climate warms, but the most aggravating, traffic-snarling, work-stopping, back-straining extreme storms like the one that just buried Boston... But of course, in terms of disruption to society or economic disruption, we’re also interested in heavy snowfalls,” said Paul O’Gorman, an associate professor of atmospheric science at MIT who published his findings in Nature. “In some regions, fairly cold regions, you could have a decrease in the average snowfall in a year, but actually an intensification of the snowfall extremes. He is currently in Australia, where the weather is sunshine and showers instead of snow, but took the time to answer a few questions by e-mail about his counterintuitive finding. For relatively mild regions, we would expect heavy snowfall to become increasingly rare as the climate warms. But in colder regions, heavy snowfalls can become more frequent because of increases in the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere or, in some cases, because of changes in the circulation of the atmosphere, such as a shift in position of.
The latest disaster movie, San Andreas, has drawn considerable attention, especially when coupled with the real-life earthquake disaster that struck Nepal April 25 and the magnitude 4. 8 gentle-reminder earthquake 100 miles north of Las Vegas... With back-to-back disasters, starting in Nevada, the earthquake works its way from southern Nevada’s Hoover Dam to Los Angeles then on to San Francisco. Hollywood has decided to go “wall-to-wall” and depict a rupture of the entire San Andreas Fault, which extends from near the Mexican border to almost Oregon. And, based on this history, the magnitude would be closer to magnitude 8. 3, not magnitude 9. 6. “Although criticism of San Andreas from scientific circles is a certainty, as state seismologist for Nevada, with responsibility for monitoring Nevada...
