• First Images and Orientation of Fine Structure from a 3-D Seismic Oceanography Data Set 

        Author(s):Holbrook, W. Steven; Blacic, Tanya M.
        We present 3-D images of ocean fine structure from a unique industry-collected 3-D multichannel seismic dataset from the Gulf of Mexico that includes expendable bathythermograph casts for both swaths. 2-D processing reveals ...
      • Examination of Laboratory-Generated Coated Soot Particles : An Overview of the LACIS Experiment in November (LExNo) Campaign 

        Author(s):Stratmann, F.; Bilde, M.; Dusek, U.; Frank, G. P.; Hennig, T.; Henning, S.; Kiendler‐Scharr, A.; Kiselev, A.; Kristensson, A.; Lieberwirth, I.; Mentel, T. F.; Pöschl, U.; Rose, D.; Schneider, J.; Tillmann, R.; Snider, Jefferson Robert; Walter, S.; Wex, H.
        In the suite of laboratory measurements described here and in companion articles we deal with the hygroscopic growth and activation behavior of coated soot particles synthesized to mimic those of an atmospheric aerosol ...
      • Relationships of Biomass-Burning Aerosols to Ice in Orographic Wave Clouds 

        Author(s):Twohy, C. H.; DeMott, P. J.; Pratt, K. A.; Subramanian, R.; Kok, G. L.; Murphy, Shane; Lersch, T.; Heymsfield, A. J.; Wang, Zhien; Prather, K. A.; Seinfeld, J. H.
        Ice concentrations in orographic wave clouds at temperatures between -24° and -29°C were shown to be related to aerosol characteristics in nearby clear air during five research flights over the Rocky Mountains. When clouds ...
      • Simulation and Observations of Stratospheric Aerosols from the 2009 Sarychev Volcanic Eruption 

        Author(s):Kravitz, B.; Robock, A.; Bourassa, A.; Deshler, Terry; Wu, D.; Mattis, I.; Finger, F.; Hoffmann, A.; Ritter, C.; Bitar, L.; Duck, T. J.; Barnes, J. E.
        We used a general circulation model of Earth's climate to conduct simulations of the 12-16 June 2009 eruption of Sarychev volcano (48.1°N, 153.2°E). The model simulates the formation and transport of the stratospheric ...
      • Seasonal Variations of Antarctic Clouds Observed by CloudSat and CALIPSO Satellites 

        Author(s):Adhikari, L.; Wang, Z.; Deng, Min
        The multiyear lidar and radar measurements obtained from the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) and CloudSat between June 2006 and May 2010 were used to investigate the seasonal and ...
      • Aerosol and Gas Re-Distribution by Shallow Cumulus Clouds : An Investigation Using Airborne Measurements 

        Author(s):Wonaschuetz, Anna; Sorooshian, Armin; Ervens, Barbara; Chuang, Patrick Y.; Feingold, Graham; Murphy, Shane; de Gouw, Joost; Warneke, Carsten; Jonsson, Haflidi H.
        Aircraft measurements during the 2006 Gulf of Mexico Atmospheric Composition and Climate Study (GoMACCS) are used to examine the influence of shallow cumulus clouds on vertical profiles of aerosol chemical composition, ...
      • Single-Column Model Ensemble Approach Applied to the TWP-ICE Experiment, A 

        Author(s):Davies, L.; Jakob, C.; Cheung, K.; Del Genio, A.; Hill, A.; Hume, T.; Keane, R. J.; Komori, T.; Larson, V. E.; Lin, Y.; Liu, Xiaohong; Nielsen, B. J.; Petch, J.; Plant, R. S.; Singh, M. S.; Shi, X.; Song, X.; Wang, W.; Whitall, M. A.; Wolf, A.; Xie, S.; Zhang, G.
        Single-column models (SCM) are useful test beds for investigating the parameterization schemes of numerical weather prediction and climate models. The usefulness of SCM simulations are limited, however, by the accuracy of ...
      • On Factors Controlling Marine Boundary Layer Aerosol Optical Depth 

        Author(s):Luo, Tao; Yuan, Renmin; Wang, Zhien
        Sea spray aerosol is one of the largest natural contributors to the global aerosol loading and thus plays an important role in the global radiative budget through both direct and indirect effects. Previous studies have ...
      • Observation of Polar Stratospheric Clouds Over McMurdo (77.85°S, 166.67°E) (2006-2010) 

        Author(s):Di Liberto, L.; Cairo, F.; Fierli, F.; Di Donfrancesco, G.; Viterbini, M.; Deshler, Terry; Snels, M.
        Polar stratospheric clouds (PSCs) have been observed in the Antarctic winter from 2006 to 2010 at the Antarctic base of McMurdo Station using a newly developed Rayleigh lidar. Total backscatter ratio and volume depolarization ...
