The North Water polynya might not be as dependent on a sea ice bridge as previously thought, but not everyone is convinced.
A new analytical solution for Emanuel’s theory on how the winds vary with the distance from the hurricane center outside of the core of the storm.
A pair of studies demonstrate the uncertainty over when the Arctic will become seasonally sea ice free.
Scientists are coming up with ingenious ways to compare terrestrial sand dunes, dust storms, and rain with their counterparts on Mars and Titan.
Airborne dust not only causes disease, it also menaces transportation on land, sea, and air; disrupts renewable energy systems; transports pathogens and toxic substances; and poses many other hazards.
The InSight Lander, on Mars, intentionally dumped sand over its seismic instrument’s tether and the wind sorted the particles by size as it blew them away.
Researchers present a new analysis of surface winds and enthalpy fluxes from satellite retrievals for African easterly waves that intensify into Atlantic hurricanes.
A new study shows that atmospheric gravity waves can be generated by the Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilities in the wind shear layer.
Subseasonal weather forecast ensembles are a useful tool for overcoming the inherent difficulty of quantifying extreme weather risk caused by data scarcity.
Radar data from storm-tracking scientists reveal that twisters’ winds churn 30% faster near Earth’s surface than above 100 meters, where measurements usually are taken.
