A tsunami (Japanese for “harbor wave”) happens when something displaces water vertically in the sea or another large body of water. These big waves can be deadly, and they happen with little warning. Preparation for one involves advance planning as well as knowledge...
Crack in the world: Geomagnetic pole shift triggering massive superquakes
By: Terrence Aym
Like the conductor of some mad orchestra, the twisting magnetic field is creating a perfect harmony of catastrophe, death and destruction. As massive earthquakes rip the earth's crust, destroy cities and kill many thousands, scientists that have warned of the relationship between the ongoing magnetic...

Anyone who thinks that living in a city means that they will be shielded from the elements is going to be sadly mistaken; a whole host of weather weirdness awaits! Especially in areas with high-rise developments and/or docks, wind shear can get ridiculously strong- tall...

The nomenclature “solar battery,” was first coined by scientists at Bell Laboratories in the early 1960’s, referring to a semiconductor device that converts solar radiation—specifically photons of ultraviolet light— into an electrical charge differential. This conversion employs the photoelectric effect, first...
Magnetic monster: Geomagnetic field reveals increasing danger of 'continent killing' quakes
By: Terrence Aym
Russian geophysicist Pogrebnikov concurs with his colleagues at Harvard and Stanford: the earth may be in for a hell of a time.Imagine events just short of doomsday and you'll have a small glimpse of the global catastrophes that may lie just ahead.Some scientists...
Geologist: Alarming magnetic field changes signal major quake for West Coast
By: Terrence Aym
A former United States Geological Survey scientist says a major quake on the West Coast is imminent.Jim Berkland predicts earthquakes…accurately.Never heard of him? Perhaps you should—especially if you live on or near the West Coast of the United States, or know...
The causes of global climate change
By: Sowmya Gali
GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE Climate is the consistent, long-term behavior of weather over time, including its variability; this contrasts with weather, which is the condition of the atmosphere at any given place and time. Global climate does not stay the same but fluctuates. Long-term influences on...
A look at unique urban weather conditions
By: Ted Sherman
Living in a big city, particularly one that has severe winters, as it happens in Boston, New York, Chicago and Philadelphia, residents can have its advantages and disadvantages. When it snows, for the first day, the city sparkles in white. Then, the situation changes when...
How earthquakes may be connected to volcanic eruptions
By: Sammy Stein
The surface of the Earth is made of masses of solid plates called tectonic plates. These plates are ' floating' over a semi-molten layer of magma which in turn lies over the molten core which is made largely of iron. The tectonic plates move towards...

Colder temperatures such as those located in arctic areas have negative impacts on the ozone layer due to the result of accumulating chlorine compound byproducts. The northern arctic pole region has a history of a large hole in the ozone layer. As the grounds warm...
