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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
Predictability and prediction of tropical cyclones on daily to interannual time scales
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-07-03)
The spatial and temporal complexity of tropical cyclones (TCs) raises a number of scientific questions regarding their genesis, movement, intensification, and variability. In this dissertation, the principal goal is to ...
A quantitative analysis of the physical mechanisms governing the life cycles of persistent flow anomalies
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000-05)
An investigation of transport during minor stratospheric warmings in the Southern Hemisphere
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995-05)
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 ...
