Tropical Widening: From Global Variations to Regional Impacts

The Changing Width of the Tropical Belt Working Group was formed in 2016 to further the understanding of new insights that call into question the prevailing view about the nature and causes of changes in the width of the tropics. Read about the impacts and activities of the Working Group and the International Space Science Institute (ISSI) Tropical Width Diagnostics Intercomparison Project on this topic in the recently published BAMS paper, "Tropical Widening: From Global Variations to Regional Impacts."
