Original resolution. Nearly half of the world's human population resides within 150 km of the ocean, and this coastal population is expected to continue increasing over the next several decades. The accurate prediction of convection and its impacts on precipitation and air quality in coastal zones, both of which impact the health and safety of all…

Also: original resolution. The Western Wildfire Experiment for Cloud Chemistry, Aerosol Absorption, and Nitrogen (WE-CAN) deployed the NSF/NCAR C-130 aircraft in summer 2018 across the western U.S. to sample wildfire smoke during its first day of atmospheric evolution. We present a summary of a subset of oxidized nitrogen species (NOy)…

Also, you can download the videos at the original resolution. The diurnal cycle (DC) of rainfall over the tropical oceans and within the Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO) has been investigated in numerous studies, but there has been limited research on how the DC of precipitation and convective organization evolve throughout phases of the MJO.…
