Distribution and influence of convection in the tropical tropopause region
[1] A global analysis of convective cloud in the tropical tropopause region (12–17 km) is presented. The analysis is based on high-resolution global imagery of cloud brightness temperatures fromExpand

THE EXTRATROPICAL UPPER TROPOSPHERE AND LOWER STRATOSPHERE
[1] The extratropical upper troposphere and lower stratosphere (Ex-UTLS) is a transition region between the stratosphere and the troposphere. The Ex-UTLS includes the tropopause, a strong staticExpand

Climate model genealogy: Generation CMIP5 and how we got there
[1] A new ensemble of climate models is becoming available and provides the basis for climate change projections. Here, we show a first analysis indicating that the models in the new ensemble agreeExpand

Climate variability and conflict risk in East Africa, 1990–2009
Recent studies concerning the possible relationship between climate trends and the risks of violent conflict have yielded contradictory results, partly because of choices of conflict measures andExpand
