STATISTICAL MODELING OF ATLANTIC HURRICANE ACTIVITY USING ATMOSPHERIC REANALYSES AND IPCC SIMULATIONS AND PROJECTIONS
Atlantic hurricane activity has increased in recent decades leading to extensive investigation of its links with rising greenhouse gases (GHG). The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is investigating how ...
The role of negative buoyancy and urbanization in warm season precipitation processes over the US.
This thesis investigates some important processes for better understanding and modeling warm season rainfall characteristics over the US. In the first part, the causes for commonly observed biases in the simulation of the ...
Moisture Flux Estimates Derived from EOS Aqua Data in the Arctic
The Arctic sea ice acts as a barrier between the ocean and atmosphere inhibiting the exchange of heat, momentum, and moisture. Recently, the ice pack has been decreasing in area and concentration. This diminished sea ice ...
