Simulations that test different approaches to modeling radiation suggest a commonly used scheme fails to fully capture changes in midlatitude circulation associated with climate change.
A warming event in Siberia caused winds to strip sea ice from the Arctic’s Wandel Sea.
The first study to estimate the global wind power on internal gravity waves based solely on observations offers a new benchmark for comparing future calculations.
The discovery of a decadal El Niño–like state associated with shifts in the Pacific trade winds could have important implications for predicting sea level in future decades.
Surface winds in a Himalayan valley are found to vary daily and seasonally due to factors including pressure gradient, advection, turbulent vertical mixing, and the presence of glaciers.
The weather in the thermosphere includes winds that buffet spacecraft as they orbit the Earth, but how well can these winds be modeled?
Whirlwinds disrupt the sea ice in the Arctic Ocean. Scientists are now beginning to understand how.
The warm current cools the tropical Pacific and strengthens trade winds.
Florida State University workshop on Satellite Observations of Ocean Surface Winds & Currents; La Jolla, California, 18–19 May 2018
Eddies in the central Bay of Bengal are generated near the eastern boundary of the basin, related to equatorial wind forcing, nonlinearity, and the topographic “bump” of Myanmar.
