Rate of Temperature–Precipitation Scaling in Rainfall Events
Future extreme rain will be embedded in shorter, more convective dominant rainfall events in the northeastern region of North America, leading to larger rate in future temperature-precipitation scaling.
A New Coupled Modeling System Improves Forecast Skills
Building on older versions, the new Global Ensemble Forecast System with coupled atmosphere-land-ocean-ice-wave models has better forecasting skills of the atmosphere than the uncoupled system.
Mesoscale Convective Systems Impact Synoptic Wave Forecast
Scientists provide a process-level understanding of how mesoscale convective systems modify the evolution of the large-scale Rossby wave packet downstream and the jet stream.
How Can Nuclear Plumes Reach the Stratosphere?
A new study shows how moist convection can lift sooty air from firestorms to the stratosphere, potentially leading to a nuclear winter.
New Cloud and Precipitation Data Over the Southern Ocean
New measurements show the macro- and microphysical characteristics of the clouds and precipitation over the data-space regions of the Southern Ocean.
A Dilemma About Radiative Climate Feedback in Recent Decades
Given the unambiguous climate warming in recent decades, is it possible to infer radiative climate feedback from modern satellite measurements of the energy budget of the Earth?
Dynamics of Volcanic Processes
A new cross-journal special collection invites contributions on modern approaches used to investigate dynamics of volcanic processes.
Comparing Methods for Analysis of Atmospheric Rivers
Results from the Atmospheric River Tracking Method Intercomparison Project (ARTMIP) describe the similarity and difference of using eleven detection algorithms and three reanalysis products.
Radar Diagnosis of the Thundercloud Electron Accelerator
Altitude-resolved S-band radar observations of graupel are used to decipher thunderstorm ground enhancements in surface electric field and gamma ray flux.
