A few things that caught my eye this past week.
Several papers of fundamental importance:
*Important new paper by Peter Minnett: The response of the ocean thermal skin layer to variations in incident infrared radiation [link]
*A provocative paper with many implications: Increased atmospheric vapor pressure deficit [link]
*Does Surface Temperature Respond to or Determine Downwelling Longwave Radiation? [link]
Something new and interesting from Russian scientists. A new approach to local climate dynamics, integrating bifurcation analysis, control theory and climate theory. Start with Section 7 for an overview worldscientific.com/doi/pdf/10.114
Climate change is altering winter precipitation across the Northern Hemisphere [link]
The influence of weather regimes on European renewable energy production and demand. [link]
Hemispheric Asymmetry of Tropical Expansion Under CO2 Forcing [link]
