New modeling shows that heatwaves across Europe have increased in both frequency and spatial extent over the past century.
Predicting areas of the Red Sea most susceptible to overheating by the end of the century could help conservation efforts to protect its precious coral reefs.
A prediction model that considers multiple landslides over time in a given region may improve the accuracy of early warning systems.
