New research confirms that ozone loss over the Arctic can lead to widespread warming near the Artic surface during late winter and early spring.
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.
Dual‐frequency Precipitation Radar observations reveal the characteristics and microphysical processes of the melting layer in cyclone precipitation over the western North Pacific.
Studying the interactions between the atmosphere and forests is a key component of understanding forest ecosystems and the interplay between our atmosphere and the living world.
A new way of representing microphysical uncertainty in convective-scale data assimilation reduces biases in model states and improves the accuracy of short-term precipitation forecasts.
A study of the impacts of radiative interactions with different cloud types on aggregation of rainstorms finds that interactions with high-clouds and water vapor are key.
Satellite data has been used to correct the aerosol loading and land surface albedo in several AeroCom models, which has improved shortwave flux biases between models and observations.
New metrics used to quantify errors in precipitation show that convection permitting simulations outperform coarser resolution simulations.
Global emissions dropped markedly in 2020, due in large part to lockdowns that slowed economic and social activity, but the climate likely won’t be noticeably affected.
Climate change appears to be directly and indirectly affecting the view from at least one observatory while threatening the existence of others.
