Observations show abrupt changes in the oceanic circulation of the southwestern Atlantic. These
studies report a southward drift of the Brazil/Malvinas Confluence (BMC) and a change in the spectral
characteristics of the Malvinas Current (MC) transport. We address the cause of these changes using the result
of a high-resolution numerical...
This paper examines albedo perturbation and radiative forcing after a high-severity fire in a
mature forest in the Oregon Cascade Range. Correlations between postfire albedo and seedling, sapling,
and snag (standing dead tree) density were investigated across fire severity classes and seasons for years
4-15 after fire. Albedo perturbation was...
