Scientist Jay Lawrimore & meteorologist Dan Satterfield detail how rising temps can affect the formation of snowstorms.
Scientist Jeff Privette explains how what's seen from the sky can tell us a lot about our climate on Earth.
The currents around the equator in the Pacific Ocean are cooler than average this year, which means we are experiencing the phenomenon known as La Niña. This can bring good weather conditions, or poor ones, depending on where you live and your point of view. Dr. Heidi Cullen explains.
Dr. JÃƒÂ¸rgen Peder Steffensen explained the goals of the North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling project and what the ice cores can tell us about our climate history.
With temperatures rising, evidence of change above and below the surface.
Just before the last Ice Age, temperatures were 5 to 9 degrees F warmer than today, and global sea level was 13 to 20 feet higher. In July 2009, Climate Central traveled to Greenland to visit scientists drilling into ancient ice for clues about this chapter of the past, and what it might say about the potential effects of global warming this century.
An international team of scientists just wrapped up their first season toward drilling a 1.6-mile core of solid ice in Greenland, bringing them one step closer to reconstructing the climate of the past 130,000 years. Accompanied by a production team from StormCenter Communications, Dr. Heidi Cullen spent some time with these scientists on the ice and in their underground trenches to find out what life is like in this remote place.
The Air Force National Guard is a vital part of climate research in the far north of Greenland. Dr. Heidi Cullen, with a production team from StormCenter Communications, met with the pilots of the 109th Airlift Wing to talk about what itÃ¢Â€Â™s like to fly in extreme weather conditions, and their dangerous job Ã¢Â€Â“ getting people and equipment into Greenland's harsh interior and back.
