    Rainfall is the climatic parameter of greatest importance to the populations of the tropical continents. The arrival of monsoon rains drives a rapid transformation of the landscape, allowing crops to grow and river networks to refill. Yet predicting where and when rain ...

    Physically, deep convection is a key process in the atmosphere, particularly in the tropics, where it is the dominant driver of the weather as well as playing a key role in forcing global circulation. Despite this key role on the large scale, convection is inherently a ...

    Snow is a material with remarkable physical properties that profoundly alters the characteristics of the Earth's surface where it lies. Because snow has a high albedo (the fraction of solar radiation that it reflects rather than absorbs) and a high latent heat of fusion...

    Depletion of the stratospheric ozone layer has been at the forefront of environmental concern over the last 40 years. The layer shields Earth's surface from certain wavelengths of harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation that would otherwise be detrimental to human and plant ...

    We propose a network to stimulate new international collaboration in measuring and understanding the surface temperatures of Earth. This will involve experts specialising in different types of measurement of surface temperature, who do not usually meet. Our motivation i...
