    • Synoptic analysis and simulation of an unusual dust event over the Atacama Desert 

      Reyers, MarkORCIDiD; Hamidi, Mehdi; Shao, Yaping (Atmospheric Science Letters, 2019)
      An unusual dust event over the Atacama Desert occurred in July 2016. Here, a synoptic study of the event is carried out using the NCEP FNL analysis data and WRF-chem simulations. The “zonalization” of a mid-tropospheric ...
    • The Role of Moisture Conveyor Belts for Precipitation in the Atacama Desert 

      Böhm, ChristophORCIDiD; Reyers, MarkORCIDiD; Knarr, LeonORCIDiD; Crewell, SusanneORCIDiD (Geophysical Research Letters, 2021-12-22)
      In the hyperarid Atacama Desert in northern Chile, rare precipitation events can leave long‐lasting geomorphological traces and have strong impacts on biota. While moisture conveyor belts (MCBs) and atmospheric rivers (ARs) ...
