    Article
    Open Access
    Between December 2005 and 2013, the In-service Aircraft for a Global Observing System (IAGOS) program produced almost daily in situ measurements of CO and O3 between Europe and southern Africa. IAGOS data combined with ...
  • Evaluation of onset, cessation and seasonal precipitation of the Southeast Asia rainy season in CMIP5 regional climate models and HighResMIP global climate models 

    Hadi Hariadi, Mugni; van der Schrier, Gerard; Steeneveld, Gert Jan; Sopaheluwakan, Ardhasena; Tank, Albert; Roberts, Malcolm John; Moine, Marie-Pierre; Bellucci, Alessio; Senan, Retish; Tourigny, Etienne; Putrasahan, Dian (Wiley, 2021)
    Article
    Open Access
    Representing the rainy season of the maritime continent is a challenge for global and regional climate models. Here, we compare regional climate models (RCMs) based on the coupled model intercomparison project phase 5 ...
  • Convergence in critical fuel moisture and fire weather thresholds associated with fire activity in the pyroregions of Mediterranean Europe 

    Resco de Dios, Víctor; Cunill Camprubí, Àngel; Pérez Zanón, Núria; Peña, Juan Carlos; Martínez del Castillo, Edurne; Rodrigues, Marcos; Yao, Yinan; Yebra, Marta; Vega García, Cristina; Boer, Matthias M. (Elsevier, 2021)
    Article

    Wildfires are becoming an increasing threat to many communities worldwide. There has been substantial progress towards understanding the proximal causes of increased fire activity in recent years at regional and national ...
  • The dust emission potential of agricultural-like fires—theoretical estimates from two conceptually different dust emission parameterizations 

    Wagner, Robert; Schepanski, Kerstin; Klose, Martina (American Geophysical Union, 2021)
    Article
    Open Access
    Agricultural fires affecting grass-, crop- and shrublands represent a major, mainly anthropogenically driven disturbance of many ecosystems. In addition to emissions of carbonaceous aerosol, they were found to inject also ...
  • A Data Set for intercomparing the transient behavior of dynamical model-based subseasonal to decadal climate predictions 

    Saurral, Ramiro I.; Merryfield, William J.; Tolstykh, Mikhail A.; Lee, Woo-Sung; Doblas-Reyes, Francisco; García Serrano, Javier; Massonnet, François; Meehl, Gerald A.; Teng, Haiyan (American Geophysical Union, 2021)
    Article
    Open Access
    Climate predictions using coupled models in different time scales, from intraseasonal to decadal, are usually affected by initial shocks, drifts, and biases, which reduce the prediction skill. These arise from inconsistencies ...
  • Cardiopulmonary Mortality and Fine Particulate Air Pollution by Species and Source in a National U.S. Cohort 

    Pond, Zachari A.; Hernandez, Carlos S.; Adams, Peter J.; Pandis, Spyros N.; Garcia, George R.; Karnezi, Eleni (American Chemical Society, 2021)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The purpose of this study was to estimate cardiopulmonary mortality associations for long-term exposure to PM2.5 species and sources (i.e., components) within the U.S. National Health Interview Survey cohort. Exposures ...

    Weather forecasts, climate change projections, and epidemiological predictions all represent domains that are using forecast data to take early action for risk management. However, the methods and applications of the ...
  • Variance processing for stable boundary-layer height estimation using backscatter lidar data: A discussion 

    Muñoz Porcar, Constantino; Silva, Marcos Paulo Araujo da; Saeed, Umar; Rey Micolau, Francesc; Pay Pérez, M. Teresa; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021)
    Conference report
