Socioeconomic and Climate Impacts on the Future of Water: An Integrated Assessment Approach to Demand, Scarcity, and Trade
Changes to socioeconomics and an evolving climate system are likely to play a vital role in how regions around the world use water into the future. Water projections for the future, while prolific, remain highly variable ...
WINTER STORM TRACKS, RELATED WEATHER, AND SUBSEASONAL-TO-SEASONAL (S2S) PREDICTION IN THE NCEP CLIMATE FORECAST SYSTEM FOR NORTH AMERICA
The subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) forecast period (2 weeks—2 months) represents a major gap in operational forecasting. Advancing S2S prediction is an international priority, particularly for disaster mitigation and resource ...
The role of consistent turbulence energetics in the representation of dry and shallow convection
In this doctoral dissertation, the role of consistent turbulence energetics is examined in the context of sub-grid turbulence, convection, and cloud condensation parameterizations for numerical weather and climate models. ...
THE PYROCONVECTIVE PATHWAY FOR STRATOSPHERIC WATER VAPOR AND AEROSOL
A detailed analysis of pyrocumulonimbus (pyroCb) cases is presented that explores their convective dynamics, stratospheric plume characteristics and down-stream radiative effects. Satellite observations in conjunction with ...
IMPACTS OF AEROSOL ON CONVECTIVE STORMS AND PRECIPITATION
Aerosol-cloud interactions (ACI) remain the largest uncertainty in projections of its future changes in climate in response to the buildup of greenhouse gases, even though they have been extensively investigated. Convective ...
