The deformation of continents by groundwater can be measured locally by GPS or detected from satellites, but more precisely monitored when measurements are combined with a hydrologic model.
Polynomial chaos and Bayesian compressive sensing are applied to a land surface model to understand how large numbers of tunable parameters interact and may be optimized.
Scientists model the effect of horses, cattle, sheep, and goats on local environments and global climate.
Soil moisture can elevate overnight temperatures, offsetting daytime cooling, especially over areas of strong land-atmosphere interactions.
A new model better explains seasonal variations in biomass.
Researchers illuminate how and why cloud feedbacks depend on spatial patterns of global warming.
The software could help strengthen ice sheet models to provide a better basis for policy decisions.
Researchers develop a mathematical method of modeling tabular icebergs, like the one that broke away from an Antarctic ice shelf earlier this year.
Researchers present a novel method for analyzing how wind shear affects tropical cyclone strength and structure.
Researchers use aquaplanet experiments to zero in on the effects of small-scale processes in the tropics that cause discrepancies between climate models.
