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, ...
Characterization of properties and spatiotemporal fields of mineral aerosol and its radiative impact using CALIPSO data in conjunction with A-Train satellite and ground-based observations and modeling
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-06-13)
The Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) mission provides unique measurements of vertical profiles of aerosols and clouds and their properties during day and night-time over all types ...
