Distinguishing between Hodographs of Severe Hail and Tornadoes

A recent WAF study explores how hodograph shape may differentiate between the environments of severe hail and tornadoes, using the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) storm mode dataset assess the environments of 8958 tornadoes and 7256 severe hail reports, produced by right- and left-moving supercells.

Bubble-Turbulence Dynamics and Dissipation Beneath Laboratory Breaking Waves
Bubble-Turbulence Dynamics and Dissipation Beneath Laboratory Breaking Waves

New in JPO: Bubbles are an important vehicle for air–sea transfer of heat and gases and important for understanding both hurricanes and global climate. This study presents data from a series of laboratory wind-wave tank experiments designed to observe bubble size distributions in natural seawater beneath hurricane conditions and connect them to surface wave statistics and subsurface turbulence.

Observed Subcloud-Layer Moisture and Heat Budgets in the Trades
Observed Subcloud-Layer Moisture and Heat Budgets in the Trades

The trade wind subcloud layer is an important component of the tropical atmosphere, coupling the surface to the trade wind cloud layer and, thus, regulating the import of heat and moisture from the ocean to the atmosphere above. A new study in JAS uses observations collected during a field campaign to test the mixed-layer theory framework and evaluate the understanding of the trade wind subcloud layer.

A New Model for Isolating the Marine Heatwave Changes under Warming Scenarios
A New Model for Isolating the Marine Heatwave Changes under Warming Scenarios

Marine heatwaves exert devastating impacts on ecosystems. A recent JTECH study proposes a new model to isolate marine heatwave changes caused by changing temperature variability from those by rising mean temperature under greenhouse warming.
