Research Scope

The assessments presented in this line of research are not weather reports but interpretations over emerging dynamics, offering arguments and discussion addressing the lack of understanding acknowledged in academia in order to identify mechanisms giving sense to data.

(Cohen et al, 17 AUGUST 2014 DOI:10.1038/NGEO2234 “The theory of Arctic Amplification and other studies on related topics, especially other observational studies, share some of the same shortcomings: lack of statistical significance, causality unclear, incomplete mechanistic understanding, and so on”)

Jennifer Francis pointed out, in November 2014, “many of your statements had not yet been verified by peer-reviewed research.” Which means that my assessments offer unsettled and unprecedented assessments applied in science.

Therefore, under the pressure of developing a line of research without economical support, the best review I can make to validate my assessments has to be throughout the test of time.

For 4 years I have been sharing assessments at weekly basis.

Such agenda has generated a calendar of publications linking assessments over atmospheric dynamics with particular periods of the year. It is my belief that altogether there is a pattern built between all those assessments and periods of time.

After leaving months, even years of time to expose my assessments for public discussion and review, once those have no faced any criticism or arguments refuting their value, I create a pdf file and a DOI publishing them at my profile in Researchgate.

In order to maintain their genuineness and legitimate innovative nature, I keep its original state so those can be compared with any copy made by any third party at any time. For your own references and review over its originality over time with respect to other publications via scientific papers and/or news reports, you can compare the publications at the blog and Researchgate with the records archived:

The conclusions reached after following the arguments presented throughout all the assessments carried out as part of the whole project can be summarised in two publications:

Research Follow -Up

In order to maintain the continuity of the process of open review offered over my line of research through my blog, ResearchGate and at LinkedIn, throughout 2016 I have kept re-sharing previous assessments to be contrasted against following real-time ongoing developments.

In the following video you can see an example of the activity associated with this process of exposure and review seeking feedback from members of LinkedIn but also a broader community since the publications are accessed also freely from outside the platform.

In the following page you can look at all the publications exposed at LinkedIn on its original date of publication and also, the times same publications were re-shared in order to test their validity through time. By following the subsequent links you can also access to see the feedback generated.

January 2018 Follow-up

One example of re-sharing previous assessments in order to test their validity over time has been the latest feed in the profile at Linkedin.

2016 March 10th. Continuing with the open review over my line of research* I want to re-share this publication to be contrasted with current developments. “Looking at the bursts of polar cold air seen in Europe and North America, my assessment for this Winter 2016 is that we have seen one after another displacements of cold air from the Arctic due convective forcing from warmer masses of air getting into high latitudes and altitudes. (In another hand, I believe that the positive phase of the ENSO has overstimulated Pacific circulation into one big cell). As I have discussed in previous posts, I believe that such scenario is due to the conditions in atmospheric circulation promoted by a trans-Arctic connection between Atlantic and Pacific basins.”

The following image represents the GFS evaluation of 2m Temp at the NH for the 29th January 2018 and the forecast for the next days. Noticed related configurations with earlier assessments pointed out in the publication shared.

The following image represents the GFS and ECMWF evaluation of 850hPa Temp and 500hPa Geopotential Height Temp at the NH for the 29th Jan 2018 and the forecast for the next days. Noticed related configurations with previous assessments pointed out in the publication shared.

The following images show the conditions of atmospheric masses of air over the South of Europe and North of Africa on January 29th, 2018.

Those images are related with previous assessments addressing the behaviour of the Polar Jet Stream throughout winter and its implications as part of a pattern in the whole atmospheric system and the synergies existent with biotic developments discussed through the line of research presented.


I have recaptured past assessments in order to contrast their validity with current developments. I have re-shared analyses over Equatorial dynamics, Polar Jet Stream behaviour, Arctic circulation, Seasonal fluctuations, the ENSO, teleconnections and global synergies.

Some people has considered that when people do not comment over climate questions, their silence can be interpreted as a form of agreement, So when I see the numbers of visits reading my assessments and the absence of comments I wonder, Can these numbers be interpreted as a form of consensus showing an agreement validating the content in the related publications? One thing is certain. It seems that my research has been able to leave many speechless.

Bachelor in General Biology, Masters degree "Licenciado" in Environmental Sciences (2001, Spain). PhD in Aerobiology (2007, UK). Lived, acquired training and worked in Spain, UK, Germany and Poland. I have shared the outcome from my work previous to 2013 as scientific speaker in events held in those countries as well as in Switzerland and Finland. After 12 years performing research and working in institutions linked with environmental research and management, in 2013 I found myself in a period of transition searching for a new position or funding to support my own line of research. In the current competitive scenario, in order to demonstrate my capacities instead of just moving my cv waiting for my next opportunity to arrive, I decided to invest my energy and time in opening my own line of research sharing it in this blog. In March 2017 the budget reserved for this project has ended and its weekly basis time frame discontinued until new forms of economic and/or institutional support are incorporated into the project. The value of the data and the original nature of the research presented in this platform and at LinkedIn has proved to be worthy of consideration by the scientific community as well as for publication in scientific journals. However, without a position as member of an institution, it becomes very challenging to be published. I hope that this handicap do not overshadow the value of my achievements and that the Intellectual Property Rights generated with the license of attribution attached are respected and considered by the scientist involved in similar lines of research. **Any comment and feedback aimed to be constructive is welcome as well as any approach exploring professional opportunities.** In this blog I publish pieces of research focused on addressing relevant environmental questions. Furthermore, I try to break the barrier that academic publications very often offer isolating scientific findings from the general public. In that way I address those topics which I am familiar with, thanks to my training in environmental research, making them available throughout my posts. (see "Framework and Timeline" for a complete index). At this moment, 2019, I am living in Spain with no affiliation attachments. Free to relocate geographically worldwide.
