Climate-scale chlorophyll patterns in the tropical Pacific from a 51 year statistical reconstruction
Understanding large, slow biological changes in the oceans has been hindered by a lack of spatial coverage by direct measurements and a lack of temporal coverage by satellite remote-sensing observations. Global ocean surface ...
Interaction Between the Aerosol Direct Effect in the Lower Troposphere and the Planetary Boundary Layer
The planetary boundary layer (PBL) limits the vertical mixing of aerosol emitted to the lower troposphere. The PBL depth and its change over time affect weather, surface air quality and radiative forcing. While model ...
CHANGES IN THE SEASONAL AMPLITUDE OF ATMOSPHERIC CARBON DIOXIDE CONCENTRATION: CAUSES AND FUTURE PROJECTIONS
The atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) observations reveal a seasonal cycle that is dominated by the growth and decay of land vegetation. Ground-based and aircraft-based observations indicate that the amplitude of this ...
Lifetime and distribution of ozone and related pollutants in the eastern United States
Most major cities in the eastern United States have air quality deemed unhealthy by the EPA under a set of regulations known as the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The worst air quality in Maryland is ...
