      Flood control work in the Mississippi River and its tributaries has likely made floods worse in Mississippi and Louisiana, researchers say. Using years of data from tree rings and from sediment in oxbow lakes — bends that once were part of the Mississippi River but became lakes when the river changed its path slightly — they say the river has flooded more often and poured more water.

    Decreasing the heat-trapping emissions is not confined to forgoing the modern conveniences. It means practicing smart approaches and use energy-efficient products which, will help in decreasing the level of carbon emissions. Adhering the same, fol. Earthquakes Today and Bible Prophecy: Has there been an increase in major earthquakes? A new United States Geological Survey study has found that middle America between Alabama and Montana is experiencing an "unprecedented" and "almost certainly manmade" increase in earthquakes of magnitude or greater. One concern is that there is.

    Climate change and the effects of global warming with regard to the climate in California primarily revolve around issues such as drought and the subsequent risk of wildfire and related occurrences. A study projected that the frequency and magnitude of both maximum and minimum temperatures would increase significantly as a result of global warming. A large river analysis was also completed for 14 selected large-river streamgages in Alabama. Annual exceedance probability flows presented in this report reflect additional streamflow data collected since the previous study of flood magnitude and frequency in Alabama, which included streamflow through September
