Capturing 40 years of climate change for an endangered Montana prairie — ScienceDaily

Over 40 years of monitoring, an endangered bunchgrass prairie became hotter, drier and more susceptible to fire annually — but dramatic seasonal changes (not annual climate trends) seem to be driving the biggest changes in plant production, composition, and summer senescence. Gary Belovsky and Jennifer Slade of The University of Notre Dame, Indiana, present these […]

Capturing Heat-Driven Atmospheric Tides on Mars

On Mars, heat from the Sun drives daily changes in temperature, wind, and pressure in the atmosphere. Known as atmospheric tides, these regular patterns play a major role in shaping the planet’s weather. Atmospheric tides exist on Earth as well, but they have a much greater influence in Mars’s thin atmosphere. The details […]
