The relative contribution of waves, tides, and non-tidal residuals to extreme total water levels on US West Coast sandy beaches

Editors’ Highlight—This study investigates the relative contribution of tides, waves, and non-tidal residuals to extreme total water levels (TWLs) at the shoreline of US West Coast sandy beaches. The goal is to better understand how individual processes combine to cause flooding and erosion events. This work on present-day regional variability adds valuable information to our understanding of how sea level rise, changes in storminess, and possible changes in the frequency of major El Niños may impact future coastal flooding and erosion along the US West Coast.

Early Results: Juno at Jupiter 

Early results from Juno's mission at Jupiter including approach to Jupiter and the first perijove pass (PJ1). Juno's scientific objectives include the study of Jupiter's interior, atmosphere and polar magnetosphere with the goal of understanding Jupiter's origin, formation and evolution. This collection of papers provides early results from Juno's measurements of the gravity and magnetic fields, deep atmospheric microwave sounding, infrared, visible and ultraviolet images/spectra and an array of fields and particles instruments as well as context for the early results with respect to current theory and models of Jupiter's formation and evolution. Topics include both Juno - Jupiter related theoretical models and data analysis as well as collaborative observations made from Earth based assets.
