Title: Simple El Ni\~{n}o prediction scheme using the signature of climate time series.

El Ni\~{n}o is a typical example of a coupled atmosphere-ocean phenomenon,
but it is not yet clear whether it can be described quantitatively by a
correlation between relevant climate events. We present an El Ni\~{n}o
prediction model based on machine learning using the time series of climate
indices. By transforming the [...]

Title: Ocean wave transmission, reflection and absorption by rows of vertical structures along the coastline.

Large arrays of wave-absorbing structures could serve the double objective of
coastal protection against erosion and clean, renewable electrical power
production. In this work, the principle of an artificial canopy is explored,
which consists of vertical structures, arranged [...]

Title: ClimART: A Benchmark Dataset for Emulating Atmospheric Radiative Transfer in Weather and Climate Models.

Numerical simulations of Earth's weather and climate require substantial
amounts of computation. This has led to a growing interest in replacing
subroutines that explicitly compute physical processes with approximate machine
learning (ML) [...]

Title: Quasi-Objective Eddy Visualization from Sparse Drifter Data.

We employ a recently developed single-trajectory Lagrangian diagnostic tool,
the trajectory rotation average $ (\mathrm{\overline{TRA}}) $, to visualize
oceanic vortices (or eddies) from sparse drifter data. We apply the $
\mathrm{\overline{TRA}} $ to three drifter data sets that cover various
oceanographic scales: t [...]

Title: Multiple Equilibrium States of the Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico.

It is known that western boundary currents, which encounter a gap in their
supporting boundary, assume two dominant steady states: a loop current state
and a gap leaping state, and that transitions between these states display
hysteresis. However, a question of whether the idealized geometries considered
to date a [...]

Title: Definition, detection, and tracking of persistent structures in atmospheric flows.

Long-lived flow patterns in the atmosphere such as weather fronts,
mid-latitude blockings or tropical cyclones often induce extreme weather
conditions. As [...]

Title: Incorporating the effect of heterogeneous surface heating into a semi-empirical model of the surface energy balance closure.

It was discovered several decades ago that eddy covariance measurements
systematically underestimate sensible and latent heat fluxes, creating an
imbalance in the surface energy budget. Since then, many studies have addressed
this problem and proposed a variety of solu [...]

Title: On moist potential temperatures and their ability to characterize differences in the properties of air parcels.

A framework is introduced to compare moist `potential' temperatures. The
equivalent potential temperature, $\theta_e,$ the liquid water potential
temperature, $\theta_\ell,$ and the entropy potential temperature, $\theta_s$,
are all shown to be potential temperatures, in the sense that they me [...]

Title: Data-Based Models for Hurricane Evolution Prediction: A Deep Learning Approach.

Fast and accurate prediction of hurricane evolution from genesis onwards is
needed to reduce loss of life and enhance community resilience. In this work, a
novel model development methodology for predicting storm trajectory is proposed
based on two classes of Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs). The RNN models are
trained [...]

Title: Enhanced monitoring of atmospheric methane from space with hierarchical Bayesian inference.

Methane is a strong greenhouse gas, with a higher radiative forcing per unit
mass and shorter atmospheric lifetime than carbon dioxide. The remote sensing
of methane in regions of industrial activity is a key step toward the accurate

Title: Statistical Post-Processing for Gridded Temperature Prediction Using Encoder-Decoder-Based Deep Convolutional Neural Networks.

The Japan Meteorological Agency operates gridded temperature guidance to
predict two-dimensional snowfall amounts and precipitation types, e.g., rain
and snow, because surface temperature is one of the key elements to predict
them. Operational temperature guidance is based on the Kalman filter, [...]

Title: Longitudinally asymmetric stratospheric oscillation on a tidally locked exoplanet.

Using a three-dimensional general circulation model, we show that the

the planetary and orbital parameters of Proxima Centauri b, support a
longitudinally asy [...]

Title: A method for preserving nominally-resolved flow patterns in low-resolution ocean simulations: Constrained dynamics.

Inability of low-resolution ocean models to simulate many important aspects
of the large-scale general circulation is a common problem. In the view of
physics, the main reason for this failure are the missed dynamical effects of
the unresolved small scales of motion on the explicitly reso [...]

Title: Global temperature goals should determine the time horizons for greenhouse gas emission metrics.

Emission metrics, a crucial tool in setting effective equivalences between
greenhouse gases, currently require a subjective, arbitrary choice of time
horizon. Here, we propose a novel framework that uses a specific temperature
goal to calculate the time horizon that aligns with scenarios achieving that
te [...]

Title: Shortening the runtime using larger time steps for the simulation of marine ecosystem models.

The reduction of computational costs for marine ecosystem models is important
for the investigation and detection of the relevant biogeochemical processes
because such models are computationally expensive. In order to lower these
computational costs by means of larger time steps we investigated the accuracy
of st [...]

Title: The dynamic state index with moisture and phase changes.

The dynamic state index (DSI) is a scalar field that combines variational
information on the total energy and enstrophy of a flow field with the second
law of thermodynamics. Its magnitude is a combined local measure for
non-stationarity, diabaticity, and dissipation in the flow, and it has been
shown to prov [...]

Title: An algebraic approach to the spontaneous formation of spherical jets.

The global structure of the atmosphere and the oceans is a continuous source
of intriguing challenges in geophysical fluid dynamics (GFD). Among these, jets
are determinant in the air and water circulation around the Earth. In the last
fifty years, thanks to the development of more and more precise and extensive
observations, it has been possible to s [...]
