Mars exhibits less atmospheric variability at the solstices than it does during periods nearer the equinoxes. Much of this variability in air temperature and dust activity is attributable to a significant decrease in eastward traveling transient wave amplitudes in the lower atmosphere near the solstice…

Observations provide increasing evidence of a methane hydrological cycle on Titan. Earth-based and Cassini-based monitoring has produced data on the seasonal variation in cloud activity and location, with clouds being observed at increasingly low latitudes as Titan moved out of southern summer…
