New Scientific Discovery: Siberian Atmospheric Rivers: Part 4 of 4

New Scientific Discovery: Siberian Atmospheric Rivers: Part 4 of 4 // Published on Mar 1, 2018

A Russian icebreaker in the Arctic sailed from open ocean water into thin sea-ice continuing into thicker sea-ice and sent weather balloons aloft every 6 hours to record air temperatures, pressure, humidity and winds.  It also dropped sensors deep into the ocean to measure salinity, pH, temperature, and collect water samples.  I describe this work, and chat about the new findings that warm humid Atmospheric Rivers ride upwards on the surface of a dome of cold dry dense air sitting atop the sea-ice, warming the air and disrupting Polar Vortices.

Topsy Turvy Weather on a Planet in Peril: Part 3 of 4 // Published on Feb 28, 2018

Bitter coldness and heavy snowfalls paralyzing many cities in EuropeCrazy warmth in the Arctic, many eastern cities in North America, parts of Africa, Asia, and Australia. Torrential rains with Biblical floods and landslides.  Snow in dry deserts, and droughts in rainforests. What is going on?  In plain, everyday language, I try to explain what is behind these seemingly unrelated events, joining the dots on our overall atmosphere and ocean system changes that are well underway, and speeding up.
