Dependence of continental severe convective instability on climatological environmental conditions
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
Most of Earth's strongest atmospheric convection occurs over the continents, where potential energy is stored over time in metastable vertical profiles, only to be released rapidly by severe storms. In contrast to ...
A global and tropical quasi-decadal oscillation of the atmosphere and Ocean
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
An oscillatory, quasi-periodic signal with a period of around 10 years was found in radiosonde- and satellite-measured datasets of lower stratospheric temperature. Power spectrum analysis and Fourier decomposition were ...
