Supercell storm tops may act like mountains that obstruct winds, transforming their flow into violent turbulence that mixes near-surface air with the stratosphere above.
Estas intensas tormentas marítimas suponen una amenaza para las comunidades costeras y las actividades económicas de las altas latitudes y puede que influencien el clima y la circulación oceánica.
Last winter, an unprecedented high-pressure system over the Arctic drove nearly a quarter of old sea ice into warmer waters, putting it at greater risk of melting.
These intense maritime storms pose threats to high-latitude coastal communities and economic activities and may influence climate and ocean circulation.
Elevation of Central American orography significantly reduces the pervasive tropical rainfall bias by blocking the easterlies and consequently warming the northeastern tropical Pacific.
One of the world’s rainiest places lies off Colombia’s Pacific coast. New field research sheds light on the Chocó low-level jet, a phenomenon responsible for the region’s precipitation.
Here’s a rundown of what this atmospheric phenomenon really is and why it matters.
Researchers hope that a network of highly consistent climate-observing sites will resolve long-standing issues with climatological data.
Cassini’s final flybys of Saturn’s largest moon may have captured a temperature drop due to rainfall, one of the first observations of weather changes on Titan.
Comparing the importance of midlatitude cyclones and post-tropical cyclones on European windstorms during the Atlantic hurricane season using ERA-5 reanalysis.
