Annual Boom–Bust Cycles of Polar Phytoplankton Biomass Revealed by Space-Based Lidar
Dec. 19, 2016

Polar plankton communities are among the most productive, seasonally-dynamic, and rapidly-changing ecosystems in the global ocean.  A study, coauthored by Jorge Sarmiento and published recently in Nature Geoscience, uses space-borne Light Detection…

A New Study Re-Examines the Projected Subtropical Precipitation Decline
Nov. 14, 2016

It has been long accepted that climate models project a large-scale rainfall decline in the future over the subtropics.  A new study, led by AOS Postdoctoral Research Associate Jie He and coauthored by Brian Soden (RSMAS), a former AOS postdoc, finds that most of the subtropical rainfall decline occurs over ocean, not land, suggesting that its…

The Formation of the Ocean's Anthropogenic Carbon Reservoir
Nov. 3, 2016

A long-standing challenge for ocean carbon cycle research is identify the pathways and mechanisms regulating the entry of anthropogenic carbon into the ocean. A new study, using a water mass/density framework, has identified the key role of the shallow overturning circulation in forming the important subpolar mode water reservoirs for the…

The Impact of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation on Springtime Dust Activity in Syria
Oct. 31, 2016

The increasing trend of aerosol optical depth in the Middle East and a recent severe dust storm in Syria have raised questions as to whether dust storms will increase and promoted investigations on the dust activities driven by the natural climate variability underlying the ongoing human perturbations such as the Syrian civil war. A new study,…
