Cold pool processes in different environments
Cold pools are localized regions of dense air near Earth's surface. They form in association with precipitating clouds in many environments ranging from moist tropical to semi-arid continental conditions, and they play important roles in weather in climate. The overarching goal of this dissertation research is to improve our process-level understanding of cold pool interactions with different components of the Earth system, focusing on two key knowledge gaps: (1) interactions with Earth's surface in continental environments; and (2) interactions with organized convective systems in tropical ...
