NASA Prototype Forecasts Storms For Transoceanic Flights

A new NASA-funded system developed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is now providing weather forecasts so that plane flights can avoid major storms over remote ocean regions. The prototype system provides eight-hour forecasts that are designed for air traffic controllers and pilots. The system combines satellite data and computer weather models to map storms over the world’s …

NASA Study Grades Climate Models, Finds Higher Temperatures Likely

NASA today announced the results of a new study by the National Center for Atmospheric Research. It shows that climate model projections that predict a greater rise in global temperature are more likely to be accurate than those predicting a lesser rise. NASA stated that the findings could provide a “breakthrough” in predicting the range of global warming expected in …
