New Technique Improves Polar Mesospheric Cloud Data Set
A new two-step Polar Mesospheric Cloud detection technique is applied towards the Himawari-8/Advanced Himawari Imager full-disk images leading to a new high-quality dataset.
Newly Improved Solar Spectral Irradiance Composite Record
A new study accurately captures solar irradiance, which is crucial to understand the energetics and radiation balance of Earth and its influences on the cryosphere, atmosphere, and ocean currents.
GOLD Sees Quasi-Stationary Waves in the Nighttime Ionosphere
The wave-like features in the pre-midnight ionosphere are not moving, vary strongly from day-to-day, and are often associated with the equatorial plasma bubbles, but their origin is still unknown.
