While the number of surface ocean CO2 partial pressure (pCO2) measurements has soared the recent decades, the Southern Ocean remains undersampled. Williams et al. now present pCO2 estimates based on data from pH-sensor equipped Bio-Argo floats, which have been measuring in the Southern Ocean since 2014. 75 more words
Temporal-Spatial Monitoring of Extreme Precipitation Event: Determining Simultaneously the Time Period It Lasts and the Geographic Region It Affects
A method is developed in this study to monitor and detect extreme precipitation events. For a rainfall event to be severe, it should last for a long period, affect a wide region, while maintaining a strong intensity. 141 more words
