Both satellite observations and model simulations reveal that more aggregated convection amplifies the increase in extreme rainfall events on a year-to-year basis.
A new conceptual framework on how convection works in the tropics helps advance understanding of the contrast between land and ocean and how the tropics will respond to climate change.
A study explores the relationship between diverse El Niño events and the background state of the tropical Pacific.
Researchers illuminate how and why cloud feedbacks depend on spatial patterns of global warming.
Variations in surface reflectivity are as important as surface elevation changes in determining regional climate at nonpolar latitudes, according to a new modeling study.
A new model reveals how cumulus convection, humidity, and tropical circulations interact as global temperatures rise.
Researchers look at previous Walker circulation models and ask, Does damping truly matter?
