  • The effects of heavy winter rains and rare summer rains on biological soil crusts in the Negev Desert
  • Biological soil crusts (BSCs) abound in the Hallamish dune field in the western Negev Desert, Israel. The aim of this paper is to examine crust responses to winter and summer rains, focusing particularly on its biomass components, chlorophyll
  • of the BSCs increase 2–3-fold following winter rains; much higher species composition was monitored at the BSC during the winter; summer rain substantially deceased the chlorophyll content of the crusts; summer rains may alter species composition and biomass

  • Air mass ; Alabama ; Arkansas ; Atmospheric dynamics ; Cyclogenesis ; Florida ; Heavy rain ; Louisiana ; North Carolina ; Precipitation ; Rainstorm ; Seasonality ; Southern United States ; Spatial variation ; Statistics ; Synoptic climatology
  • This paper examines the synoptic climatology and seasonality of heavy rainfall across the southeastern United States, in adopting a threshold approach. Frontal systems (particularly cold fronts) were found to be the dominant mechanism that induces
  • heavy rainfall across the study area, but tropical disturbances and air-mass storms also contribute, especially at the more coastal locations. Annual regimes were found to vary dramatically from one site to another, and 7 of the 8 sites investigated
