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 ...
Laser flash photolysis studies of halogen atom reactions of atmospheric interest
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-10-24)
The Earth's atmosphere is a large photochemical reactor consisting primarily of N2 (~78%) and O2 (~21%) with Ar and water vapor being the next most abundant constituents. All of the remaining gases in the atmosphere are ...
Understanding the sources and atmospheric processes of soluble iron in aerosols using a synergistic measurement approach
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-11-08)
This thesis focuses on the characterization of soluble iron in ambient/urban and source emission aerosols, primarily focusing on the sources and atmospheric processes contributing to iron solubility. Multiple techniques, ...
