Today's selection from the Gallery
Atmospheric heating over Indonesia due to latent heat release in thousands of convective cumulonimbus clouds triggers equatorial waves. An equatorial Kelvin wave propagates eastward over the Pacific, and an equatorial Rossby wave propagates westward over the Indian Ocean.
