Shining light into the dark reveals the unseen, but in some cases, it changes our perception of reality. Through moonlight we learn how the environment tricks our ways of finding nocturnal clouds.
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.
Investigadores descubren cómo el carbono negro evoluciona de partículas hidrofóbicas a sitios de nucleación de nubes, removiendo eventualmente las partículas que absorben calor del cielo.
A team of researchers in Brazil and the United States uncovered the importance of the mechanism of oxidation—a process with the potential to affect climate and precipitation across the tropics.
By using novel aircraft measurements over the eastern North Atlantic Ocean, researchers shed light on the relationship between common marine biogenic gases and the microphysical properties of clouds.
Changes in sea surface temperature during ENSO events and radiation are related, suggesting a two-way coupling between sea surface temperature and radiation in coupled climate variability.
An examination of the relationship between the diurnal variation of cloud overshooting tops density and typhoon intensity in 45 typhoons, using the Himawari-8 Satellite.
The microwave radiometer aboard NASA’s Juno spacecraft reveals the hidden atmospheric circulations at work deep below Jupiter’s colorful clouds.
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.
New satellite observations of polar stratospheric clouds have advanced our understanding of how, when, and where they form, their composition, and their role in ozone depletion.
