Infrared and radio observations reveal zonal winds moving faster than 2,000 kilometers per hour on a “failed star” in our celestial neighborhood.
Changes in rates of Arctic coastal erosion detected from multi-decadal measurements are attributed to the shorter duration in the winter sea ice coverage and large-scale changes in the wind patterns.
Melting ice means that strong Arctic winds create more energetic currents in the Beaufort Gyre.
Inhaling particulate matter is hard on human health. New research shows that Southern California’s Santa Ana winds can clear or exacerbate fine-particulate pollution depending on wildfire conditions.
Satellite data combined with wind models bring scientists one step closer to being able to monitor air pollution from space.
New research indicates that droughts in far-off places contribute to the amount of heat transported to regions experiencing heat waves.
Getting the polar stratosphere right is critical in the simulation of North Atlantic climate change, which is shaped by the interaction of Arctic Amplification and tropical upper tropospheric warming.
Winds are thought to play a significant role in driving the asymmetric seasonal cycle of Antarctic sea ice growth and melt.
Ground motion caused by gusts of wind can drown out signals from the smallest earthquakes, potentially confusing earthquake detection algorithms.
A new study could help manage sardine populations in coastal waters.
