Scientists have long known that atmospheric convection in the form of hurricanes and tropical ocean thunderstorms tends to occur when sea surface temperature rises above a threshold.

Drifting of the large tectonic plates and the superimposed continents is not only powered by the heat-driven convection processes in the Earth’s mantle, but rather retroacts on this internal driving processes.

Stunning simulations that give a multi-dimensional glimpse into the interior of stars show that material bubbling around the convection zone induces a rich spectrum of internal gravity waves in the stable layers above and below.

Here are a few basic weather terms that you may have heard and don't know what they mean. Convection: Convection means that an area of t-storms has developed in an unstable part of the atmosphere. Zonal flow: This Term is used when talking about the jet stream. Zonal means that the strong winds at about 20-30,000ft are blowing west to east. This is important in weather because these types of winds or pressure systems will move very fast and not have a chance to get very strong....
