In total, 24 soundings were launched, nearly half of which show strong variations in the relationship between ozone and water vapour in the tracer–tracer correlation in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere (UTLS).

This paper introduces a new satellite record of gravity wave activity in the polar lower stratosphere to investigate this process.

Despite its versatility, RNA interference can have detrimental side effects, including reduced cell viability. [...] Published on 2017-04-19.

The temperature, magnetic field, and angular dependence of the magnetic moments of individual Skyrmions are analyzed.

For example, in one-dimensional systems, the short-range interaction is screened, while the long-range interaction is antiscreened.

Numerical analysis Water resources research 53(2), 1080 - 1100 (2017) [10.1002/2016WR019983]   In an accompanying paper, we presented an overview of a wide variety of modeling concepts, varying in complexity, used to describe evaporation from soil. Using theoretical analyses, we explained the simplifications and parameterizations in the different approaches. [...] Published on 2017-02-03.

Theory and different model concepts Water resources research 53(2), 1057 - 1079 (2017) [10.1002/2016WR019982]   Evaporation is an important component of the soil water balance. It is composed of water flow and transport processes in a porous medium that are coupled with heat fluxes and free air flow. [...] Published on 2017-02-03.

HOPE has been designed to provide an observational dataset for a critical evaluation of the new German community atmospheric icosahedral non-hydrostatic (ICON) model at the scale of the model simulations and further to provide information on land-surface–atmospheric boundary layer exchange, cloud and precipitation processes, as well as sub-grid variability and microphysical properties that are subject to parameterizations.
