Today's selection from the Gallery
Amplitude and phase maps of the first two EOFs of the diurnal cycle in temperature over the maritime continent, as simulated by the UK Met Office atmospheric model. These EOFs represent gravity waves that are forced by diurnal convection over the land, that then propagates outward over the ocean.
