Thunderstorms can bring intense rain, hail, lightning and even tornadoes, but predicting them a few hours out is one of the great problems of meteorology.

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....
