A research article by Alexander Lojko, a Ph.D. candidate at U-M Climate and Space, is featured as an Editor’s Highlight in EOS. The paper is highlighted in the article “Mesoscale Convective Systems Impact Synoptic Wave Forecast” now available on EOS.org.
With his team, Lojko’s research provides a process-level understanding of how mesoscale convective systems modify the evolution of the large-scale Rossby wave packets. The research was published in JGR: Atmospheres, in a paper titled “The Remote Role of North-American Mesoscale Convective Systems on the Forecast of a Rossby Wave Packet: A Multi-Model Ensemble Case-Study”.
