In Crusius et al., (top left) Expanded map of sampling region. The map at right shows the sampling stations (green circles) on the shelf/slope transect extending seaward from near the mouth of the Copper River (AK) (Station 1) to beyond the shelf break (Station 5).
Juno’s MicroWave Radiometer (MWR) passively observes beneath Jupiter’s cloud tops. This artist’s conception shows real data from the 6 MWR channels, arranged by wavelength.
Ionospheric response during the storm over Taiwan and Indian longitudes on 17
March 2015. The data assimilation results over (left column) Taiwan and (right column) Indian longitudes are plotted, showing (
first row) electron
density (Ne), (second row) zonal electric field (
), and (third row) meridional wind (
), respectively, at 1900 LT. The altitude gradient of flux tube
integrated electron density (1/N[dN/dh]) at (dotted) 1900 LT and (dashed) 1930 LT is overplotted on the electron density contou

The cover figure shows examples of local and regional seismic events observed using surface fiber-optic cables and distributed acoustic sensing (DAS).
Left: installation photographs from three sites with fiber optic cables including Richmond, CA (top), Fairbanks, AK (middle), and Stanford, CA (bottom). Right: a small catalog of seismic events observed using these surface DAS cables from 5 to 500
km epicentral distance. Events are color-coded to the site of observations.

Rokhzad et al studied optimization of dissipation and dispersion errors for two-frequency system of equations using IMEX Runge-Kutta schemes. They found A-stability property to be more useful than L-stability property, more specifically for stiff limits, since A-stability allows to increase the range of stability (first row) and decrease the phase errors (second and third rows), which are related to larger stable time step size and more accurate solutions respectively.
In Youseﬁ Lalimi et al.(DOI: 10.1002/2016JG003540), the image shows (a and d) DTM, (b and e) LAI, and (c and f) NDVI for site 1 (Figures 4a–4c) and site 2 (Figures 4d–4f). The ﬁrst crest-line (closest to the shoreline) and the shoreline are shown in each map.
Hurricane Patricia (Oct., 2015) and Supertyphoon Haiyan (Nov. 2013) are the 2 ‘Champion’ Tropical Cyclones in the recorded human history. These 2 cyclones can be called category ‘6’ super cyclones, because both reached an astonishing peak intensity, far exceeding the existing highest category of 5 in the tropical cyclone scale. This illustration shows the approach of these 2 super ‘cyclones’ to the Philippines and Mexico, i.e. the 2 sides of the Pacific Ocean. These 2 champion cyclones are compared and reasons are explore on their extra-ordinary intensifications. The tropical cyclone trajectories and intensity are obtained from the best track archives of National Hurricane Center’s (NHC; http://ftp.nhc.noaa.gov/atcf/archive/) and the US Joint Typhoon Warning Centre (JTWC; https://metoc.ndbc.noaa.gov/web/guest/jtwc/best_tracks/). The visible images are provided from the Rapid Response imagery from the Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) system operated by the NASA/GSFC/Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS)(https://lance.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/cgibin/imagery/gallery.cgi). The image of Hurricane Patricia over Mexico was taken from the MODIS instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite on Oct. 23, 2015 at 17:30 UTC/1:30 p.m. EDT. The image of supertyphoon Haiyan approaching the Philippines was taken from the MODIS instrument aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite on Nov. 7, 2013 at 04:25 UTC/Nov. 6 at 11:25 p.m. EDT. Thanks to NASA/EOSDIS (https://lance.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/imagery/gallery.cgi) for providing the visible images from Terra and Aqua/MODIS, and to NHC (http://ftp.nhc.noaa.gov/atcf/archive/), JTWC(https://metoc.ndbc.noaa.gov/web/guest/jtwc/best_tracks/) for TCs’ best track and intensity data.

Ceres has plenty of permanently shadowed regions (mapped in blue) at the present day when its obliquity is small. However, due to obliquity changes in the past, only few permanent shadows remain.
In Garrick-Bethell et al. [DOI: 10.1002/2016JE005154], photographs of two opposite faces of 76535, 153 are shown. Lines indicate the approximate
In DeVries and Weber, DeVries and Weber combined satellite and oceanographic tracer data to estimate the flux of sinking organic carbon out of the ocean‘s euphotic zone, and the efficiency with which the carbon is transferred to the deeper ocean.
