Jonathan Mitchell and colleagues have a new paper in Nature Geoscience, "Locally enhanced precipitation organized by planetary-scale waves on Titan". It is also the subject of a News and Views piece. The team used a global circulation model of Titan to demonstrate how planetary-scale atmospheric waves affect the moon's weather patterns.
