Coming from exacerbating extreme weather situations to endangering our favorite foods, the effects of climate change are wide-spread and readily observed. This kind of has provided scientists with an enormous series of data to cram the trend of climate alteration. However, entropy about weather change is not enclosed to tree rings and extraction of ice indurations alone. Here is a rundown of several interesting ways scientists study weather change today: Fossilized Hyrax Urine Who knew levels of ancient pee can be considered a valuable treasure trove of climate change data? Due to hyrax’s set of unusual habits, researchers are afforded…

Despite living in the most tough and snowy places in Antarctica, the penguins, especially Humboldt feathers always stay clean and ice free. The Humboldt penguin species found in South America, mostly in western coastal areas. There they swim in the cold water with the higher freezing point, but the feather remains immune from the ice. Researchers have pointed out that the water repellant of the feathers was the core thing, but another research showed ice can hold more water repellent of surfaces on higher humid and extensively lower temperature. So the questions is how their feathers don’t stick on the…

Excessive heat is always a threat to the mankind because it causes lots of health fatigues. Right from hyperthermia to dehydration and sometimes higher temperature turn out to be a reason of the death. But there is still lack of definition for the heat wave. Consequently, public health care sectors failed to process the heat alerts, cooling facilities and some other anti-heating campaigns most of the time. But this lacking has been solved by A University of Missouri School of Medicine researchers. They founded the uniform heat wave definition, which can help public health sectors to arrange proper things for…
