Polar Warming Makes the Jet Stream Stable, Not Wavy or Blocked
An idealized climate model suggests polar warming stabilizes the jet stream and reduces atmospheric blocking at midlatitudes.
How the Solar Wind May Affect Weather and Climate
The Sun's influence on the Earth's climate is complicated, but researchers are slowly figuring out how the solar wind can indirectly affect clouds over the poles.
