The characterization of deep convection in the tropical tropopause layer using active and passive satellite observations (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-07-08)Several studies suggest that deep convection that penetrates the tropical tropopause layer may influence the long-term trends in lower stratospheric water vapor. This thesis investigates the relationship between penetrating ...
An experimental evaluation of the role of water vapor and collisional energy on ash aggregation in explosive volcanic eruptions (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-04-05)Eruption dynamics are sensitive to ash aggregation, and ash aggregates (e.g. accretionary lapilli) are commonly found in eruptive deposits, yet few experiments have been conducted on aggregation phenomena using natural ...
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-07-07)Factors governing the efficiency of convective moistening in the tropical upper troposphere between 15
Observed decadal variations of the zonal mean hygropause and its relationship to changes in the transport barrier (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-08-24)This study examines the long-term record of lower stratospheric water vapor focusing on the 20-year data record from the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment II (SAGE II). The SAGE II zonal monthly mean water vapor ...
