The variability and seasonal cycle of the Southern Ocean carbon flux
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-07-03)
Both physical circulation and biogeochemical characteristics are unique in the Southern Ocean (SO) region, and are fundamentally different from those of the northern hemisphere. Moreover, according to previous research, ...
Understanding the scale interaction of atmospheric transient disturbances and its coupling with the hydrological cycle over the Pacific-North American regions
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-07-08)
Large-scale atmospheric disturbances play important roles in determining the general circulation of the atmosphere during the North Pacific boreal winter. A number of scientific questions have been raised due to these ...
On the representation of sub-grid scale phenomena and its impact on clouds properties and climate
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-11-18)
This thesis addresses a series of questions related to the problem of achieving reliable and physically consistent representations of aerosol-cloud interaction in global circulation models (GCM). In-situ data and modeling ...
Climate dynamics of the South Pacific Convergence Zone and similarities with other subtropical convergence zones in the Southern Hemisphere
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-11-15)
Three semi-permanent cloud bands exist in the Southern Hemisphere extending southeastward from the equator, through the tropics, and into the subtropics. The most prominent of these features occurs in the South Pacific and ...
Temporal variations of monsoon systems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-09-09)
It has been proposed that the Asian-Australasian monsoon system is influenced by large-scale sea-surface temperature (SST) variability in the three tropical oceans although how this influence is manifested has remained a ...
An investigation of transport during minor stratospheric warmings in the Southern Hemisphere
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995-05)
Intraseasonal Dynamical Evolution of the Northern Annular Mode
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-04-21)
Recent observational and modeling studies indicate a robust dynamical coupling between the stratosphere and troposphere during boreal winter. This coupling occurs in association with the Northern Annular Mode (NAM), which ...
Diagnostic studies of extratropical intraseasonal variability in the northern hemisphere
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-04-11)
A comprehensive analysis of midlatitude intraseasonal variability in extended integrations of General Circulation Models (GCMs) developed at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center is ...
On the uncertainties and dynamics of Pacific interannual and decadal climate variability and climate change
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-11-11)
Tropical and extratropical Pacific decadal climate variability substantially impact physical and biological systems in the Pacific Ocean and strongly influence global climate through teleconnection patterns. Current ...
A quantitative analysis of the physical mechanisms governing the life cycles of persistent flow anomalies
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000-05)
