NEW PRESS RELEASE: Atmospheric Science Letters in the news!
Smart cyclone alerts over the Indian subcontinent
This article describes a first application of mobile telephony alerts for an extreme weather event - the progression and landfall of cyclone Phailin. The international media picked up on the cyclone Phailin story (11th–12th October 2013) - 800 000 people were evacuated within 48 h. Here we describe a novel scheme using Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) simulations and mobile phone alerts for cyclone warnings. Cellphones have a deep penetration even in rural pockets of India and it is anticipated that the results of this commentary will inspire disaster mitigation efforts over many parts of the developing world.
Can marine cloud brightening reduce coral bleaching?
The seeding of marine clouds to cool sea surface temperatures could protect threatened coral reefs from being bleached by warming oceans. Research, published in Atmospheric Science Letters, proposes that a targeted version of the geo-engineering technique could give coral a fifty year ‘breathing space’ to recover from acidification and warming.
