Spatio-Temporal Modeling of Rain Rates
Modeling episodes of heavy rain is an important component of hydrological studies. Based on the analysis of ship-borne radar data over the tropical ocean, we propose a new class of probability densities that capture the ...
An Investigation of Raman Lidar Aerosol Measurements and their Application to the study of the Aerosol Indirect Effect
The problem of the increasing global atmospheric temperature has motivated a large interest in studying the mechanisms that can influence the radiative balance of the planet. Aerosols are responsible for several radiative ...
Improved Refraction Corrections for Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR) by Ray Tracing through Meteorological Data
The most important accuracy-limiting factor for modern space-based geodetic techniques such as Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR), Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI), the Global Positioning System (GPS), and satellite ...
Investigations of the spatial and temporal resolution of retrievals of atmospheric CO2 from the Atmospheric InfraRed Sounder (AIRS).
As the dominant anthropogenic greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide (CO2), represents an important component of climate change (IPCC 2007). Owing to burning of fossil fuels and deforestation, atmospheric CO2 concentrations have ...
Temperature Change and Water Vapor Feedback in The Atmosphere. A Comprehensive Assessment Using The Atmospheric InfraRed Sounder Instrument on NASA AQUA Satellite.
Global surface temperature has increased &sim0.2 degree Celsius per decade in the past 30 years [Hansen et al. 2006] . Observational data recorded from 1850 to 2007 indicate that the warmest 11 years have occurred between ...
