- ‘Similar to the May 29 event, aurora were observed at midlatitudes - in both Europe and the United States.’
- ‘Anthropogenic depletion of the stratospheric ozone layer at the polar zone and also at earth midlatitudes is leading to considerable increment in UV-B radiation on the earth's surface.’
- ‘The weather systems responsible for transporting heat and moisture towards Antarctica have their origins in the midlatitudes of the Southern Hemisphere or in the circumpolar trough of low pressure.’
- ‘But the gullies typically are found at midlatitudes, where temperatures are so cold that the presence of liquid water is unlikely.’
- ‘In the past, atmospheric observations at midlatitudes were insufficient for creating the single-column and cloud-resolving models.’
- ‘Viewed from the northern midlatitudes, Venus rises within a half hour of 4 A.M. local time throughout the winter and spring - nearly two hours before dawn's first light in January.’
