      Key Points

      • IBEX discovered a “Ribbon” of ENA emissions nearly encircling the heliosphere
      • Multiple hypotheses are intensely competing to explain the Ribbon's origin
      • A new paradigm for the heliosphere/interstellar medium interaction is required
    2. Review of wave-driven sediment resuspension and transport in estuaries

      Malcolm O. Green and Giovanni Coco

      Article first published online: 5 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2013RG000437

      Key Points

      • Spatial and temporal variations in the wave-induced bed shear stress are linked
      • Waves drive offshore transport by canceling settling lag
      • Waves may fluidize subtidal beds, changing bed erodibility

      Key Points

      • Observations show the importance of non-orographic waves at mid-latitudes
      • Idealized simulations explain some of the observed gravity waves near jets
      • Remaining challenges include taking moist processes into account
    2. A review of uncertainty in in situ measurements and data sets of sea surface temperature

      John J. Kennedy

      Article first published online: 24 JAN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2013RG000434

      Key Points

      • Digitization of data and metadata from ship's logs will help reduce uncertainty
      • A major barrier to reducing uncertainty in SST is a lack of reliable metadata
      • New SST analyses and intercomparisons are needed to improve understanding
