Representing droplet size distribution and cloud processes in aerosol-cloud-climate interaction studies
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-05-04)
The indirect effect of aerosols expresses how changes in aerosols would influence clouds and cause impacts on Earth's climate and hydrological cycle. The current assessment of the interactions between aerosols and clouds ...
Quantifying compositional impacts of ambient aerosol on cloud formation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-11-14)
It has been historically assumed that most of the uncertainty associated with the aerosol indirect effect on climate can be attributed to the unpredictability of updrafts. We assess the sensitivity of cloud droplet number ...
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 ...
