Measurement of Cloud Perturbation Pressures Using an Instrumented Aircraft
Contributor:Parish, T. R.; Leon, Dave
The Global Extent of the Mid Stratospheric CN Layer : A Three-Dimensional Modeling Study, The
Contributor:Campbell, P.; Mills, M.; Deshler, Terry
For the first time the global extent of a mid-stratospheric new particle layer is addressed, using the National Center for Atmospheric Research Community Earth System Model, version 1 (CESM1), with the high-top atmosphere ...
Dust transport over Iraq and northwest Iran associated with winter Shamal : A case study
Contributor:Vishkaee, Farhad Abdi; Flamant, Cyrille; Cuesta, Juan; Oolman, Larry D.; Flamant, Pierre; Khalesifard, Hamid R.
Dynamical processes leading to dust emission over Syria and Iraq, in response to a strong winter Shamal event as well as the subsequent transport of dust over Iraq and northwest Iran, are analyzed on the basis of a case ...
Spatial Distribution of Mineral Dust and its Shortwave Radiative Forcing Over North Africa : Modeling Sensitivities to Dust Emissions and Aerosol Size Treatments, The
Contributor:Zhao, C.; Liu, Xiaohong; Leung, L. R.; Johnson, B.; McFarlane, S. A.; Gustafson, W. I., Jr.; Fast, J. D.; Easter, R.
A fully coupled meteorology-chemistry-aerosol model (WRF-Chem) is applied to simulate mineral dust and its shortwave (SW) radiative forcing over North Africa. Two dust emission schemes (GOCART and DUSTRAN) and two aerosol ...
Intercomparison of Polar Ozone Profiles by IASI/MetOp Sounder with 2010 Concordiasi Ozonesonde Observations
Contributor:Gazeaux, J.; Clerbaux, C.; George, M.; Hadji-Lazaro, J.; Kuttippurath, J.; Coheur, P.-F.; Hurtmans, D.; Deshler, Terry; Kovilakam, M.; Campbell, P.; Guidard, V.; Rabier, F.; Thépaut, J.-N.
Validation of ozone profiles measured from a nadir looking satellite instrument over Antarctica is a challenging task due to differences in their vertical sensitivity with ozonesonde measurements. In this paper, ozone ...
Behavior-Based Authentication System
Contributor:Means, Taylor; Frank, Jared
All current forms of authentication are exploitable via social engineering, theft, hacking, or replication. Due to this, a new form of authentication should be explored: behavioral. A solution to this problem would result ...
Orographic Precipitation in the Tropics : The Dominica Experiment
Contributor:Smith, R. B.; Minder, J. R.; Nugent, A. D.; Storelvmo, T.; Kirshbaum, D. J.; Warren, R.; Lareau, N.; Palany, P. E.; James, A.; French, Jeff
Orographic precipitation influences water resources, flooding and landslides, regional climates, and global water budgets. Progress has also been made on thermally driven island convection in the tropics. In contrast, the ...
Estimates of Biomass and Fixed Carbon at a Rainforest in Panama
Contributor:Pinzón, Reinhardt; Fábrega, José; Vega, David; Vallester, Erick N.; Aizprúa, Rafael; López-Serrano, Francisco R.; Ogden, Fred; Espino, Kleveer
This paper presents an estimation of the quantity of carbon fixed in trees in a one hectare (ha) plot at the Cerro Pelado-Gamboa Hydrology Tropical Observatory, which is located in the province of Colon, Panama. The ...
Aerosol Effects on Cirrus Through Ice Nucleation in the Community Atmosphere Model CAM5 with a Statistical Cirrus Scheme
Contributor:Wang, Minghuai; Liu, Xiaohong; Zhang, Kai; Comstock, Jennifer M.
A statistical cirrus scheme that tracks ice saturation ratio in the clear-sky and cloudy portion of a grid box separately has been implemented into the Community Atmosphere Model CAM5 to provide a consistent treatment of ...
Evaluating Winter Orographic Cloud Seeding : Design of the Wyoming Weather Modification Pilot Project (WWMPP)
Contributor:Breed, D.; Rasmussen, R.; Weeks, C.; Boe, B.; Deshler, Terry
An overview of the Wyoming Weather Modification Pilot Project (WWMPP) is presented. This project, funded by the State of Wyoming, is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of cloud seeding with silver iodide in the Medicine ...
