'Tug of war' keeps scientists working on storm tracks
from Science Daily
Storm tracks — regions where storms travel from west to east across oceans and continents driven by the prevailing jet stream — determine weather and climate in middle-latitude places like Chicago and New York. "Changes in the position of storm tracks in response to anthropogenic climate change depend on how the equator-to-pole temperature gradient will change, and among the various factors affecting this gradient, cloud changes stand out as one of the important pieces of the puzzle," said Tiffany S. Shaw, assistant professor in geophysical sciences at the University of Chicago.
