Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds used a dominant pitching performance to grab a 2-1 win over the Salt Lake Bees in front of a sellout crowd of 11,024 fans Saturday night at First Tennessee Park.

One night after the Sounds used three pitchers to shut out the Las Vegas 51s, four pitchers held the Bees to one run on four hits in another one-run win. It’s the third time in four games the Sounds have won a one-run game.

Kendall Graveman started on a Major League rehab assignment and went 4 2/3 innings. The right-hander allowed one run on four hits while walking a pair and striking out five. The lone run he allowed was a one-out solo homer to Ramon Flores to give Salt Lake a 1-0 lead in the second.

NASA study reveals why Clouds sometimes produce a Drizzle

 

Written by Carol Rasmussen
NASA’s Earth Science News Team

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – A new NASA study shows that updrafts are more important than previously understood in determining what makes clouds produce drizzle instead of full-sized raindrops, overturning a common assumption.

The study offers a pathway for improving accuracy in weather and climate models’ treatments of rainfall — recognized as one of the greater challenges in improving short term weather forecasts and long-term climate projections.

The research by scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California; UCLA; and the University of Tokyo found that low-lying clouds over the ocean produce more drizzle droplets than the same type of cloud over land. The results are published online in the Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society.
