Before the forty-niners named a narrow valley in California, ‘Death Valley’, the Shoshone Indians called it ‘Tomesha’, or ‘Ground afire’. It lives up to both names. It has deadly heat. On 10 July 1913, an air temperature of 134 F (56.7 C) was recorded the highest in the world until exceeded by a temperature of 136 F (57.8 C) at El-Azizia, Libya (32 32’N, 13 Ol’E), on 13 September 1922. The ground surface temperature is more extreme, having risen to 201 F (93.9 C) on 15 July 1972 (Fig. 1). This… 

Quality control of daily meteorological data in China, 1951-2000: a new dataset

Long‐term observational data are essential for understanding local and regional climate and climate change. These data are also important for hydrological designs and agricultural decision making.

Evaluation of IMERG and ERA5 Precipitation-Phase Partitioning on the Global Scale

The precipitation phase (i.e., rain and snow) is important for the global hydrologic cycle and climate system. The objective of this study is to evaluate the precipitation-phase partitioning

Spatial Quality Control Method for Surface Temperature Observations Based on Multiple Elements

The results show that using PCA to analyze the elemental composition and select elements with high correlation factors, as well as applying the Random Forest algorithm, can effectively reduce the run time and keep the accuracy of the model.

Calculation of the real daily and monthly mean working temperature of a photovoltaic plant

Accurately predicting the production of a photovoltaic (PV) plant is essential to its economic evaluation. Ambient temperature is a major environmental factor affecting how much power a PV plant

Simultaneous Abiotic Production of Greenhouse Gases (CO2, CH4, and N2O) in Subtropical Soils

Soils exert considerable influence on the global biogeochemical cycles, but their role in the abiotic production of volatile compounds remains poorly understood. In this study, we demonstrated

Cracking and Photo-Oxidation of Polyoxymethylene Degraded in Terrestrial and Simulated Marine Environments

Marine plastic debris is an environmental problem, and its degradation into microplastics (1-5000 μm) introduces them into the food chain. In this study, small polyoxymethylene (global production

The life aquatic with spiders (Araneae): repeated evolution of aquatic habitat association in Dictynidae and allied taxa

It is indicated that not all spiders with traits thought to be useful for aquatic habitat associations occupy such habitats, and that some spider taxa lacking these traits are nonetheless associated with water.

A quality control method for surface hourly temperature observations via gene‐expression programming

This article aims to find the best‐fit regression function for the quality control (QC) for the surface hourly temperature. A new QC method based on gene‐expression programming (GEP) was employed to



Extreme maximum land surface temperatures

Abstract There are numerous reports in the literature of observations of land surface temperatures. Some of these, almost all made in situ, reveal maximum values in the 50°–70°C range, with a few,
