High-Resolution Clouds and Radiative Fluxes from Satellites: Transferability of Methods and Application to Monsoon Regions
High-resolution information on clouds and radiative fluxes is produced for the Indian and African monsoon regions of interest to the GEWEX Project as articulated under the Coordinated Energy and Water Cycle Observations ...
Radiative and Cloud Microphysical Effects of Forest Fire Smoke over North America and Siberia
Aerosol affects climate both through direct radiative effects and by indirect effects on cloud development. Absorbing aerosols have additional influence on the vertical temperature profile of the atmospheric column. Radiative ...
Investigating Aerosol Effects on Clouds, Precipitation and Regional Climate in US and China by Means of Ground-based and Satellite Observations and a Global Climate Model
Aerosols affect climate by scattering/absorbing radiation and by acting as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) or ice nuclei (IN). One of the least understood but most significant aspects of climate change is the aerosol effect ...
THE DIURNAL AND SEASONAL RADIATIVE EFFECTS OF CIRRUS CLOUDS UTILIZING LARGE AIRBORNE AND SPACE-BORNE LIDAR DATASETS
Cirrus clouds are globally the most common cloud type, however, their radiative impact on the Earth remains a large source of uncertainty in global climate models. Cirrus are unique in that they are absorptive to terrestrial ...
