A new paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans explores the ability of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional storm surge models to simulate current, sediment transport, and the effects of vegetation on storm surge.
Understanding the Madden-Julian Oscillation, the dominant element influencing intraseasonal variability in the tropical atmosphere, is crucial to improving predictions on timescales of weeks to months. Yet, exactly how this phenomenon is initiated is an active area of scientific inquiry.A recently accepted paper in the Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems by Maloney and Wolding …
A new Climate Program Office-sponsored study published in the journal Climate Dynamics and led by Drs. Sun-Seon Leon and Bin Wang from the University of Hawaii has identified the characteristic wind and cloud variations associated with the two main areas of thunderstorm activity over the Indian Ocean and West Pacific that make up the BSISO.
