Cloud Feedbacks in CMIP6 Models Versus Expert Synthesis
Models with smallest feedback errors are found to have moderate cloud feedbacks and equilibrium climate sensitivity of 3 to 4 degrees of warming when the concentration of carbon dioxide is doubled.
Arctic Sea Ice is Crucial for Forecasting Ural Blocking
By solving the nonlinear optimization problem, sea ice concentration in Greenland, Barents and Okhotsk Seas is found crucial for prediction of strong and long-lasting Ural blocking formation.
¿Cuánto tiempo permanecen las partículas de carbono negro en la atmósfera?
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.
New Insights on Stratospheric Circulation from Fluorine Tracers
Stratospheric fluorine species have accumulated faster in the Northern Hemisphere over the past two decades reflecting interhemispheric differences in the Brewer-Dobson transport circulation.
Hurricane Forecast Improvement with Better Turbulent Processes
A new look at turbulent processes has improved the prediction of hurricane rapid intensification by properly accounting for the unique environment of a hurricane eyewall.
How Long Do Black Carbon Particles Linger in the Atmosphere?
Researchers uncover how black carbon evolves from hydrophobic particles to cloud nucleation sites, eventually removing the heat-absorbing particles from the sky.
Seasonality in Saharan Dust Across the Atlantic Ocean
The first time series of bi-weekly dust concentrations measured in-situ across the remote Atlantic Ocean.
Satellite Sensor EPIC Detects Aerosols in Earth’s Atmosphere
Aerosol observations from EPIC—a sensor aboard a satellite—align well with ground- and aircraft-based data, including measurements of smoke plumes produced by recent megafires.
