Shifts in the natural climate across the north-central United States have been observed as a result of the extensive conversion of the natural prairie into agricultural land. A recent study in EI explores how further land-use land cover changes will affect the near-surface atmosphere, the lower troposphere, and the planetary boundary layer (PBL) atmosphere over this region.

The near-storm environments of 147 long-lived supercells were examined using hourly weather model data to understand how environmental changes influence the evolution and severe weather production of supercell thunderstorms in a new study in WAF.
A recent study in MWR investigates how the orientation of the midlevel vertical wind shear vector impacts the longevity of and thus the potential for near-surface vortex formation within simulated supercell thunderstorms, which may lead to a better understanding of why some supercells persist longer than others.
New in JPO: a linear theory and a numerical model are employed to understand the patterns of inner-core mixing and cooling of the sea surface caused by tropical cyclones, in order to better understand the role of the ocean in affecting tropical cyclone intensity.
