In the last few weeks I've been working on a project to better communicate climate science. Inspired by the amazing work done by Mat Lipson, Steefan Contractor and James Goldie, I've made a tool to check if today is a climate extreme in multiple Spanish cities.
Hector is a storm that regularly forms in the Tiwi Islands (Australia) during the wet season. So often that it has earned its own name. Hector realism in models is a great way of testing their ability to represent tropical convection.
Convection in the Maritime Continent has large implications both regionally and globally. It is the main rainfall-generating mechanism in the region and also injects moisture and energy into the upper levels of the atmosphere
Cities are usually warmer than rural counterparts. This effect is known as the urban heat island and it has many implications in a world where climate is changing and population is steadily increasing.
