Analysis of the usefulness of automatically processed ERTS multispectral data for geologic purposes in Georgia
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1976-05)
A concise survey of the occurrence and varying formation environments of feldspathic rocks in the southern highlands, Mars
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-12-09)
Presented here, is a synthesis of previous studies that have resulted in the discovery of feldspathic material on the Martian surface through the utilization of orbital (e.g., OMEGA on Mars Express and CRISM on MRO) and ...
Examining the spatiotemporal variability and direct impacts of mineral dust in Central Asia using a coupled regional modeling system and satellite-based sensors
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-11-05)
The airborne dust has been well recognized to have a significant impact on the climate system at varying spatial scales (through direct, indirect, and semi-direct effects), on biochemistry (providing marine phytoplankton ...
Constraining global biogenic emissions and exploring source contributions to tropospheric ozone: modeling applications.
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-06-26)
Biogenic isoprene plays an important role in tropospheric chemistry. We use HCHO column measurements by the Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) to constrain isoprene emissions. Using the global Goddrad Earth Observing ...
Integrated Spatiotemporal Characterization of Dust Sources and Outbreaks in Central and East Asia
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-04-07)
The potential of atmospheric dust aerosols to modify the Earth's environment and climate has been recognized for some time. However, predicting the diverse impact of dust has several significant challenges. One is to ...
Developing and testing a coupled regional modeling system for establishing an integrated modeling and observational framework for dust aerosol
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-01-09)
To this date, estimates of the climate response to mineral dust remain largely uncertain because of our limited capability to quantify dust distribution in the atmosphere. Focusing on the Central and East Asian dust source ...
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 ...
Spatio-temporal variability of aerosols in the tropics relationship with atmospheric and oceanic environments
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-07-07)
Earth's radiation budget is directly influenced by aerosols through the absorption of solar radiation and subsequent heating of the atmosphere. Aerosols modulate the hydrological cycle indirectly by modifying cloud properties, ...
Investigation of tropospheric bro using space-based total column bro measurements
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-04-03)
We derive tropospheric column BrO during the ARCTAS and ARCPAC field campaigns in spring 2008 using retrievals of total column BrO from the satellite UV nadir sensors OMI and GOME-2 using a radiative transfer model and ...
Models of aerosol backscatter, extinction and absorption profiles for desert aerosols based on aircraft instrument and ground-based lidar measurements
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1990-12)
