Pollution and barriers are key problems for Europe’s waters


European water bodies suffer from agricultural pollution as well as pollution from insufficiently treated waste water from cities, industry and scattered dwellings, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report, published today.

Devastating wildfires cause record emissions in Northern hemisphere


Europe?s?Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) has been closely monitoring a summer of extreme wildfires across the Northern Hemisphere, including intense hotspots around the Mediterranean basin and in North America and Siberia. The intense fires led to new records in the CAMS dataset with the months of July and August seeing their highest global carbon emissions respectively.
CAMS reports that not only large parts of the Northern Hemisphere were affected during this year?s boreal fire season, but the number of fires, their persistence and intensity were remarkable.

The weather in Germany in August 2021 - Deutscher Wetterdienst


Offenbach, 30 August 2021 ? During the last month of summer 2021, Germany was mainly under the influence of low-pressure areas centring over the British Isles from where they gradually moved to southern Scandinavia. These resulted in frequent rainfall, which was accompanied at first by violent thunderstorms, extremely heavy localised precipitation and even tornados. Periods of high pressure and sunshine were generally only brief. The initially summery temperatures fell in the course of the month and were at times autumnal during the last ten days of the month. Consequently, August 2021 was...

Ozone layer recovery is an environmental success story


The World Meteorological Organization joins the rest of the international community in marking World Ozone Day on 16 September. It highlights the importance of safeguarding the Earth?s protective ozone layer and shows that collective action, guided by science, is the best way to solve major global challenges.
The ozone layer in the upper atmosphere blocks ultraviolet (UV) radiation that harms living tissue, including humans and plants. The ozone ?hole,? which was discovered in 1985 is the result of human emited chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are ozone-depleting chemicals and greenhouse...
