  1. NCAR’s new climate model is running hot

    A new study takes a detailed look at possible reasons why the latest version of the flagship climate model based at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) appears to be “running hot,” projecting an even more pronounced warming response to increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than previous versions.

    ‘Terminators’ on the Sun trigger plasma tsunamis and the start of new solar cycles

    In a pair of new papers, scientists paint a picture of how solar cycles suddenly die, potentially causing tsunamis of plasma to race through the Sun’s interior and trigger the birth of the next sunspot cycle only a few short weeks later.
