Microscale modeling can be used to understand and predict urban weather with sufficient detail to inform and support flight safety for crewed and uncrewed aerial vehicles.
Simulations of tropical ocean convection help distinguish climate effects resulting from large-scale changes in atmospheric circulation from those resulting from higher temperatures.
Climate models struggle to accurately portray clouds because the models cannot resolve the scales at which clouds form. A new study demonstrates a potential fix for the problem.
A “moist shell” makes all the difference in how some storms evolve.
A new study suggests that more robust turbine design is needed to weather high winds.
A new study that overturns an 80-year-old assumption about atmospheric turbulence may finally resolve discrepancies in observations of atmospheric heat, water vapor, and carbon.
New computer simulations of Martian dust devils could aid Red Planet weather forecasts.
Computer simulations show that although adding aerosol particles to clouds can make them more reflective, the cooling effect from clouds is largely counterbalanced by a reduction in overall cloud cover.
Fine-scale simulations of cumulus cloud layers could help improve weather and climate models.
