ESTIMATE OF RAIN EVAPORATION RATES FROM DUAL-WAVELENGTH LIDAR MEASUREMENTS: COMPARISON AGAINST A MODEL ANALYTICAL SOLUTION
Rain evaporation significantly contributes to moisture and heat cloud budgets. In this paper, we illustrate an approach to estimate the median volume raindrop diameter and the rain evaporation rate profiles from dual-wavelength ...
MIXED LAYER DEPTHS VIA DOPPLER LIDAR DURING LOW-LEVEL JET EVENTS
A low-level jet (LLJ) is a prominent wind speed peak in the lower troposphere. Nocturnal LLJs have been shown to transport and mix atmospheric constituents from the residual layer down to the surface, breaching quiescent ...
LIDAR PROFILING IN THE LOWER TROPOSPHERE: EXPERIENCE FROM PECAN
Results from the PECAN (Plains Elevated Convection at Night) campaign are discussed. In particular, the utility of simple backscatter lidars/ceilometers in quantifying atmospheric dynamics parameters and variables as well ...
