      Advection, moistening, and shallow-to-deep convection transitions during the initiation and propagation of Madden-Julian Oscillation

      Samson Hagos, Zhe Feng, Kiranmayi Landu and Charles N. Long

      Accepted manuscript online: 30 AUG 2014 03:34AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014MS000335

      Key Points

      • Large-scale vertical advection of moisture leads convection transitions in MJO
      • The decline of midlevel equatorward advection drying plays a comparable role
      • The contributions of convective scale processes and zonal advection are smaller

      Impacts of forest harvest on cold season land surface conditions and land-atmosphere interactions in northern Great Lakes states

      Matthew Garcia, Mutlu Özdogan and Philip A. Townsend

      Accepted manuscript online: 26 AUG 2014 11:47PM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014MS000317

      Key Points

      • Land cover change alters land-atmosphere energy and moisture exchange
      • Forest clearing significantly reduces winter sensible and latent heat fluxes
      • High-resolution land cover change analyses may be useful in synoptic models

      A spectral transform dynamical core option within the Community Atmosphere Model (CAM4)

      Katherine J. Evans, Salil Mahajan, Marcia Branstetter, Julie L. McClean, Julie Caron, Matthew E. Maltrud, James J. Hack, David C. Bader, Richard Neale and Juliann K. Leifeld

      Accepted manuscript online: 12 AUG 2014 02:02AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014MS000329

      Key Points

      • Longwave cloud forcing in T85 CAM4 is sensitive to the choice of dynamical core
      • Improved precipitation over India does not translate to improved surface stress
      • The increase in temperature extremes during NH summer is underestimated
