Greetings and thanks to all who’ve stopped by. Across the northern hemisphere, we’ve many more weeks of winter ahead so let’s continue our winter weather safety information. But first, there are many other interesting science links to check out. Let’s get started.
- Citizen science is a great way for non scientists to participate in gathering important data that is used in a variety of applications. A good example is the Backyard Bird Count. It’s 25 years old and more popular than ever.
- The devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria have a death toll that’s exceeded tens of thousands and untold billions in damage. But, one lasting after effect that cannot be ignored is the mental health of survivors which is just as important as their physical health.
- Robots can be used to explore many places on our planet that humans can’t reach. In this interesting case, a robot is evaluating a massive Antarctica glacier.
- Speaking of collecting data, balloons are used for a variety of scientific applications. Hundreds are used daily to collect critical weather data for forecast that directly affect you. Here’s a very thorough, scientific, and objective look at how high altitude balloons are used for a variety of scientific applications.
- In case you missed it, here’s a look back at the weather and climate of January 2023 in the USA from NOAA. January 2023 was active in many ways and, for a winter month, quite warm as well.
- Here is the latest update on the USA Drought Monitor. Conditions east of the Mississippi river and in many western states have improved significantly this past week. Some relief has occurred in the plains states yet extreme or exceptional drought conditions exist from Nebraska to Texas.
WINTER WEATHER PREPAREDNESS AND SAFETY
- If you’re looking for winter weather preparedness and safety information, here’s an excellent website for everything you need to know for before and after the storm. This all inclusive website from NOAA and the National Weather Service will help you prepare for the storm and tell you how to stay safe afterwards. Here’s some more winter safety information from OSHA geared towards those who have to work outdoors in the cold. The infographics have tips on dressing for the cold and five things to keep in mind during the coldest months of the year.
