Prediction of convective-scale storms, such as severe thunderstorms or tornadoes, has been traditionally performed with limited-area models. Present-day computing resources are insufficient to support real-time global convective-scale weather prediction.

The second joint AerChemMIP / RFMIP / PDRMIP Workshop in support of CMIP6 will be held from June 11-14, 2019 at the Friend Center.

Workshop Goals: Discuss the use of AerChemMIP, RFMIP, and PDRMIP integrations and diagnostics to advance our understanding of composition, forcing and feedback processes for better constraints on past...

Scientists, including AOS Associate Research Scholar Salvatore Pascale, are working to isolate and identify the various sources and mechanisms, beyond earthquakes, that vibrate the solid earth. The search has led them offshore to investigate how wind and waves and the seafloor interact to produce a symphony of sound that humans...
