A new numerical setup demonstrates that aerosols could affect clouds, and hence the radiation budget, thousands of kilometers from their location.
Atmospheric river variability over the last millennium is primarily driven by north-south displacements in zonal winds induced by the annular modes.
During the late Quaternary period, a series of abrupt climate changes in the tropics and sub-tropics driven by changes in ocean circulation were both dramatic and disruptive.
A new study showing the most vulnerable protected areas—the poles and the subtropics—could help prioritize their care.
In the first global assessment of its kind, researchers discovered that coral recruitment is declining globally and throughout the tropics while increasing in the subtropics.
A study of extreme weather in South America shows seasonal and spatial patterns, which, if better understood, could help save lives and minimize damage to property.
