• Characterising the local and intense water cycle during a cold air outbreak in the Nordic Seas 

      Papritz, Lukas; Sodemann, Harald (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Air masses in marine cold air outbreaks (CAOs) at high latitudes undergo a remarkable diabatic transformation because of the uptake of heat and moisture from the ocean surface, and the formation of precipitation. In this ...
