Analyses of high-resolution radiosonde balloon measurements have provided a novel climatology of atmospheric turbulence parameters in the troposphere and lower stratosphere.
A new version of a major sea surface temperature data set reduces systematic errors in measurements of one of the most important indicators of the state of Earth’s climate system.
A new index for quantifying regional sensitivities to the influence of periodic events.
The tule fog in California’s Central Valley is notorious for causing delays and accidents throughout the region; however, a decrease in air pollutants is reducing the fog’s frequency.
A new study finds that the tropical atmosphere maintains radiative-convective equilibrium as a whole, but not at smaller scales.
Wind observations made by a high-latitude radar network shed new light on the rapid response of atmospheric tides in the upper mesosphere to stratospheric sudden warmings.
A new model of the Laki eruption in Iceland suggests that normal climate variability was to blame for the anomalously warm summer.
Black and organic particle emissions have significant impacts on both health and climate, and household cooking and heating activities may contribute substantially to these impacts in China.
A special issue dedicated to modeling the impacts of stratospheric sulfur dioxide injections is a crucial step toward understanding the climate goals this intervention can—and cannot—achieve.
New observational constraints suggest that U.S. emissions of this heat-absorbing aerosol were 80% higher during the late 20th century than prior estimates have indicated.
