SEA-SURFACE TEMPERATURE BASED STATISTICAL PREDICTION OF THE SOUTH ASIAN SUMMER MONSOON RAINFALL DISTRIBUTION
The South Asian summer monsoon brings copious amounts of rainfall accounting for over 70% of the annual rainfall over India. Summer monsoon predictions have drawn considerable public/policy attention lately as South Asia ...
IMPROVING U.S. EXTREME PRECIPITATION PREDICTION AND PROCESS UNDERSTANDING USING A MESOSCALE CLIMATE MODEL MULTI-PHYSICS ENSEMBLE APPROACH
Despite many recent improvements, climate models continue to poorly simulate extreme precipitation. I attempted to improve prediction of extreme precipitation, focusing on daily 95th percentile (P95) events, and to better ...
DECADAL TO CENTENNIAL SCALE CLIMATE DYNAMICS IN MODELS OF VARYING COMPLEXITY
Though concerted climate action by the world's governments intends to limit long-term (e.g. 100 years) global average temperature rise, attention has recently focused on reducing climate impacts in our lifetime by reducing ...
The Role of Soil Hydro-physical Properties in Land-atmosphere Interactions and Regional Climate
Soil hydro-physical properties are necessary components in weather and climate simulation; yet, the parameter inaccuracies introduce considerable uncertainty in the representation of surface water and energy fluxes. The ...
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 ...
Quantification of the Past and Future Anthropogenic Effect on Climate Change Using the Empirical Model of Global Climate, an Energy Balance Multiple Linear Regression Model
The current episode of global warming is one of, if not the, biggest challenge to modern society as the world moves into the 21st century. Rising global temperatures due to anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases are ...
