  1. 20-day forecast simulation with starting conditions that differed on the order of a thousandth of a degree of the control (Forecast vs Fake Reality) yielded drastically different results past six days.

    Confronting the unpredictable

    Even with the ideal computer model and nearly perfect observations, new research confirms what meteorologists have long thought: there's a limit to how far in advance we can forecast the weather.

    Solar flares: From emergence to eruption

    A team of scientists has, for the first time, used a single, cohesive computer model to simulate the entire life cycle of a solar flare: from the buildup of energy thousands of kilometers below the solar surface, to the emergence of tangled magnetic field lines, to the explosive release of energy in a brilliant flash.
