A thunderstorm made waves on a rare “bright night.”
Researchers used neural networks to better define the parameterizations necessary for modeling the distribution and characteristics of orographic gravity waves.
Spacecraft observations and model simulations provide new insights into tidal patterns that transport momentum and energy into the planet’s upper atmosphere.
Gravity waves in the atmosphere drive weather around the globe. A new study helps interpret gravity wave data and identify annual patterns of this atmospheric mechanism.
An idealized climate model suggests polar warming stabilizes the jet stream and reduces atmospheric blocking at midlatitudes.
