Inside Stanford Earth
Stanford climate scientist Katharine Mach describes a shift from climate seeming like a distant issue for others, to a muggy, smoky reality that we live and breathe today.
Stanford Earth's Noah Diffenbaugh explains why tornadoes are the kind of extreme event where scientists are least able to attribute the odds or characteristics of individual events to an influence of global warming.
Solar geoengineering would ease heat stress, but also block vital sunlight for plants, according to new research co-authored by Marshall Burke of Stanford Earth.
Using two volcanic eruptions as proxies for a geoengineering program, researchers including Stanford Earth's Marshall Burke found that using aerosols to cool the planet likely wouldn’t help crops.
Scientists including Stanford's Marshall Burke looked at the effects of volcanic eruptions to determine that solar shading resulting from geoengineering would negatively affect crops.
In the fight against climate change, research co-authored by Stanford Earth's Marshall Burke suggests one proposed method of cooling the Earth is more like chemotherapy than cure.
A new study co-authored by Marshall Burke suggests any boost in crop yield due to lower temperatures from geoengineering would be largely counteracted by dimmer sunlight.
Spraying a veil of chemicals high above the Earth to slow global warming could harm crop yields, according to research by scientists including Stanford's Marshall Burke.
Research co-authored by Marshall Burke of Stanford Earth shows scattering aerosols in the sky would cool the planet, but it would block crucial sunlight for plants.
Research co-authored by Stanford's Marshall Burke shows a geoengineering method intended to combat climate change would hurt agriculture.
Philip Womble, a Stanford Earth PhD student, comments on research he led that shows new leverage for tribes in water disputes following a landmark court ruling.
Research suggests the climate extremes of California's past five years are indicative of what the future will hold, says Stanford Earth's Noah Diffenbaugh.
Stanford Earth's Marshall Burke describes evidence that people across socioeconomic strata and populations share a biological response to warmer temperatures.
Stanford Earth's Noah Diffenbaugh explains how scientists are working to find climate change fingerprints in individual extreme weather events.
The hotter the conditions, the more dried out the vegetation gets. That elevates the wildfire risk, explains Stanford Earth's Noah Diffenbaugh.
Stanford Earth professor by courtesy Ken Caldeira asks new grad students to name the biggest fundamental breakthrough in climate physics since 1979. It's a trick question.
