Monday, November 19th7: This press release features multimedia.
There's a great writeup here describing what this means.
Peak Wave Period is the inverse frequency of the most energetic waves passing through a particular point, whether wind generated or swells. Certainly, there are many more groups of waves moving through an area, each in different directions, but trying to show them all rapidly becomes complex.
Instead, we show the one wave group contributing the most energy. This has the effect, though, of creating "boundaries" between regions of ocean where the 1 wave group suddenly switches to second place. Often these boundaries represent swell fronts, but other times they are just artifacts of the ranking mechanism.
For example, from the run at GEOS-5 was constructed in the s, so perhaps the model does not account for accumulation of atmospheric CO2 over time? This is simply speculation.
I am just not certain. This is not scientifically valid, but it does allow the visualization to become illustrative of the discussion occurring today around atmospheric CO2. Without question, I would welcome a more rigorous approach or an explanation why the GEOS-5 model produces the data that it does.
Forecasts using the GEOS system are experimental and are produced for research purposes only. Use of these forecasts for purposes other than research is not recommended.
Common particles are dust, smoke, soot, and water droplets clouds. These particles affect sunlight primarily through absorption and scattering, which combine to reduce the amount of light reaching the ground.
This loss of light as it passes through the atmosphere is called extinction. One common measure of extinction is aerosol optical thickness AOTwhich is the log of the ratio between the power of incoming light and the power of transmitted light.
This helps us understand how "thick" the air is with particulates.View CNN world news today for international news and videos from Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas. View CNN world news today for international news and videos from Europe.
