Scientists at Columbia’s Earth Institute are using simulations to test how well different methods protect coastal areas from hurricanes and sea level rise.
A new commentary suggests innovative ideas to promote collaboration and interdisciplinary teamwork, which are essential to sustainability breakthroughs.
A new study uses machine learning to better represent clouds in climate models, which helps to predict the climate’s response to rising levels of greenhouse gases.
In a new study, researchers show that machine learning algorithms can pick out different types of earthquakes from three years of data at Geysers in California. The repeating patterns of earthquakes appear to match the seasonal rise and fall of water-injection flows into the hot rocks below.
Adding protective barriers around street trees could reduce load on city sewers, study finds.
In a paper published in the journal Science, researchers looked at increasing trends in the severity of tornado outbreaks, measured by the number of tornadoes per outbreak. They found that these trends are increasing fastest for the most extreme outbreaks.
