Using a simplified climate model, researchers forced the south polar winds to reverse arbitrarily and found that the final impact at the surface is indistinguishable from events where the winds reverse in response to natural phenomena.

Research by CLEX scientists and colleagues re-examines some of the basic assumptions and interpretations in the theory. In particular, they show the SAM cannot be interpreted as a descriptor of mid-latitude variability and it has little imprint on the weather of the storm track.
This paper investigates the annual cycle in cloud and rainfall measurements over the western equatorial Indian Ocean. While there is a single period of strong rainfall over the region during December-January each year, there are two periods of increased high-top clouds associated with convection.
CLEX researchers and colleagues examined the movement of surface water into the depths of the ocean in response to these wind changes using a global ocean model.
Kim had her first paper accepted in the Journal of Climate and was over the moon but sneaking up behind her was another first she didn't expect - her first bout of imposter syndrome.
