A machine-learned correction enables an efficient coarse-grid global atmosphere model to better track the weather and time-mean precipitation of an expensive fine-grid ‘digital twin’ reference model.
A team of researchers in Brazil and the United States uncovered the importance of the mechanism of oxidation—a process with the potential to affect climate and precipitation across the tropics.
Rainfall varies with elevation, and such precipitation gradients can have profound and often counterintuitive effects on topography.
A new study reveals the atmospheric paths of storm events that can deliver a decade’s worth of rain in a few hours to the Atacama Desert.
Research reveals the connection between a country’s day-to-day weather and its production.
Climate change is increasing the risk of fire-rain events, raising mudslide concerns in fire-prone communities.
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.
A 20-year high-resolution global mesoscale convective system tracking database reveals the characteristics of mesoscale convective systems and their significant contributions to global rainfall.
Behind Uganda’s lavish beauty, climate change has taken its toll: Death, destroyed properties, and displaced communities increase as above-normal rainfall floods the country.
