Paper on easterly waves in the Eastern Pacific that can form into tropical cyclones published in The Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences

“Easterly waves” are areas of low air pressure in the tropics that move westward and may become tropical cyclones. The most well-known type of easterly wave is the “African easterly wave,” which moves from West Africa north of the equator … Continue reading

HRD seminar – Ghassan “Gus” Alaka, Colorado State University – 8 September 2014

Gus presented a seminar on “Intraseasonal Variability of African Easterly Wave”. Abstract African easterly waves (AEWs) and associated perturbation kinetic energy (PKE) exhibit significant intraseasonal variability in tropical North Africa during boreal summer. Since AEWs are seed disturbances to Atlantic … Continue reading
