A STUDY OF OPTICAL, PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF AEROSOLS USING IN SITU MEASUREMENTS
Using a simple sampling apparatus, aerosol particles were collected on a polycarbonate substrate in various locations around the world. The focus of this study was Xianghe, China, an industrial town 70 km southeast of ...
ENHANCEMENT OF ATMOSPHERIC LIQUID WATER ESTIMATION USING SPACE-BORNE REMOTE SENSING DATA
Clouds strongly affect the energy balance and water cycle, two dominant processes in the climate system. Low-level liquid clouds have the most significant influence on cloud radiative forcing due to their areal extent and ...
AN INVESTIGATION OF CIRRUS CLOUD PROPERTIES USING AIRBORNE LIDAR
The impact of cirrus clouds on the Earth's radiation budget remains a key uncertainty in assessing global radiative balance and climate change. Composed of ice, and located in the cold upper troposphere, cirrus clouds can ...
Multi-sensor Cloud and Aerosol Retrieval Simulator and Its Applications
Executing a cloud or aerosol physical properties retrieval algorithm from controlled synthetic data is an important step in retrieval algorithm development. Synthetic data can help answer questions about the sensitivity ...
ESTIMATING SURFACE ELEVATION BIASES FROM SUBSURFACE SCATTERED PHOTONS FOR LASER ALTIMETERS
Three decades of satellite observations have revealed rapid changes in Earth’s cryosphere associated with anthropogenic climate change, including decreased extent and volume of Arctic sea ice, mass loss from the Greenland ...
Satellite Remote Sensing of Smoke Particle Optical Properties, Their Evolution and Controlling Factors
The optical and chemical properties of biomass burning (BB) smoke particles greatly affect the impact wildfires have on climate and air quality. Previous work has demonstrated some links between smoke properties and factors ...
