Simulations suggest that waves in the atmosphere above northern Africa influence the intensity, timing, and location of formation of Atlantic tropical cyclones.
Slantwise convection in the Irminger Sea off Greenland appears to mix ocean water to deeper depths than previously thought, representing an important contribution to Atlantic overturning.
A new study finds that the minimum sea level pressure, as another measure of hurricane strength, is a better predictor of hurricane damage in the United States than the maximum sustained wind speed.
Observations show that, due to ocean waves, the drag coefficients for surface wind stresses have spatial asymmetry within typhoons, which should be considered in weather and climate simulations.
El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) predictability is examined in a new global coupled retrospective forecast ensemble for the 20th Century.
A new study focuses on the rapid growth of tropical cyclones and their destructive potential.
Recent research suggests fire-generated vortices are always present during wildfires.
A new study focuses on the frequency and distribution of tropical cyclones over the past 40 years.
The Lut Desert in Iran is an exceptional natural laboratory to study how wind moves sediment across the landscape. A new study quantifies erosional and depositional sediment fluxes of the desert.
A new study presents the first evidence of the existence of an intraseasonal westward-propagating moisture mode over the Western Hemisphere.
