New study from NASA predicts more severe storms

DailyTech - Science 2 September 2007

NASA scientists have developed a new model that is among the first to simulate the strength of updrafts in storms. This model was applied to a global warming scenario to give a possible peek at what future weather might look like

NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies is a leading research center, located in New York, which studies Earth's past, present and future climates.
The Institute has recently announced a new study which discusses what future storms might look like in a global warming scenario.
NASA's scientists at the Institute developed a new climate model for the study. The model is among the first to successfully simulate the strength of updrafts in storms. This allows the model to give a more complete picture of the strength of storms that are occurring around the world, and those that may someday occur. Read More
