Last update on Dec. 7, 2016.

It may seem bizarre that processes occurring within clouds near the USA, involving tiny ice crystals and water droplets, can have an influence on high impact weather events thousands of miles away in Europe, and our ability to predict them days in advance. However, this is the fundamental nature of the atmosphere as a chaotic ...

Observing the Low-level Atmospheric Circulation in Tropical Atlantic

Last update on April 21, 2017.

EUFAR-supported flight campaign, July 2016

Clustered with the DACCIWA campaign, the OLACTA-2 project is focused on the role of the air-sea interaction on the southern West-African climate dynamics, a scientific topic presently not covered by DACCIWA. This project thus aims at advancing knowledge on the low-level atmospheric circulation (LLAC) in the Eastern Equatorial Atlantic in ...
