Geostrophic Atmospheric Moisture Waves

In a recent post I introduced a new atmospheric wave pattern that I stumbled upon in working on a hydroclimatology paper. I’ve since looked at it further and shared with some colleagues. Given t...

Geostrophic Moisture across North America

If one takes the January 1979 surface plot of the ERAI EP (Evaporation minus Precipitation) coverage, this is a sample of the possible views.  If I’m not mistaken, Rossby and Kelvin waves are s...

Tracking the Heat of Greenhouse Gases

Numerous authorities stress that outgoing longwave radiation (infrared radiation which is emitted by the Earth) is somehow trapped by so called greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide which have an IR...
