A Simple Model of Intraseasonal Oscillations

Editor's Highlights—    This paper seeks to get at the essence of what make slow (40-50) day weather in the tropics by simplifying the governing equations in a way that makes them solvable with pencil and paper. Specifically, the authors present a new model of linear equatorially trapped disturbances.... more

Mapping the global depth to bedrock for land surface modeling

Editors’ Highlight The work provides a global dataset of depth to bedrock in its hydrologic/geologic sense, distinct from the "soil depth" parameter typically used in the land surface schemes of Earth system models for evapotranspiration parameterizations. A machine learning technique using borehole.... more

Four Perspectives on Order From Chaos

Robert Pincus, Editor-in-Chief, JAMES

From Eos.org: Editors’ Vox— What makes thunderstorms clump, even to the point of singularity, over uniform oceans? Three recent papers in JAMES address this question, and a new Commentary ties them together. Here’s a problem that sounds simple enough: What happens to an Earth-like atmosphere over a.... more
