  1. Sylvestre Lacour:

    Our observations suggest a ball of gas illuminated from the interior, with rays of warm light swirling through stormy patches of dark clouds, convection moves around the clouds of silicate and iron particles, which disaggregate and rain down into the interior. This paints a picture of a dynamic atmosphere of a giant exoplanet at birth, undergoing complex physical and chemical processes.

  2. Bowen Pan:

    The southern edge of the Saharan dust outbreak is associated with the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), where 70% of the hurricanes are generated from that region. So if there's a Saharan dust outbreak, there's more likely going to be a greater temperature contrast between the Saharan desert and the Sahel region that will increase the convection activity in the ITCZ.

  3. Diana Francis:

    Melting ice in the Arctic is reducing the temperature created between the polar region and mid latitudes and this makes the weather systems move slowly over our region, convection [ leading to storms ] now can occur over several days whereas before, without climate change, it would have occurred over several hours and moved on.

  4. David Robinson:

    When dust veils like this occur, they tend to put a lid on atmospheric convection over areas favorable for tropical storm development, add to this the impact of the El Nio, which favors stronger-than-average winds across the Atlantic basin-- which tend to shear apart any rising motion -- and you have a recipe for a below-average hurricane season.

  5. Mysteries Coltice:

    Convection models were good for the mantle, but not plates, and plate tectonics was good for plates but not the mantle, and the whole story behind the evolution of the system is the feedback between the two.
