Retrieval of ice cloud properties using an optimal estimation algorithm and MODIS infrared observations: 1. Forward model, error analysis, and information content
An optimal estimation (OE) retrieval method is developed to infer three ice cloud properties simultaneously: optical thickness (τ), effective radius (r ₑ𝒻𝒻 ), and cloud top height (h). This method is based on a fast ...
Retrieval of ice cloud properties using an optimal estimation algorithm and MODIS infrared observations: 2. Retrieval evaluation
An infrared-based optimal estimation ( OE-IR) algorithm for retrieving ice cloud properties is evaluated. Speciﬁcally, the implementation of the algorithm with MODerate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) observations ...
Dimensionality Reduction Using Sliced Inverse Regression in Modeling Large Climate Data
Prediction of precipitation using simulations on various climate variables provided by Global Climate Models (GCM) as covariates is often required for regional hydrological assessment studies. We use a sufficient dimension ...
Spatio-temporal analysis of precipitation data via a sufficient dimension reduction in parallel
(American Statistical Association, 2016)
Prediction of precipitation using simulations on various climate variables provided by Global Climate Models (GCM) as covariates is often required for regional hydrological assessment studies. In this paper, we use a ...
The impact of cloud vertical profile on liquid water path retrieval based on the bispectral method: A theoretical study based on large‐eddy simulations of shallow marine boundary layer clouds
Passive optical retrievals of cloud liquid water path (LWP), like those implemented for Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), rely on cloud vertical profile assumptions to relate optical thickness (τ) and ...
Shortwave direct radiative effects of above-cloud aerosols over global oceans derived from 8 years of CALIOP and MODIS observations
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2016-03-04)
In this paper, we studied the frequency of occurrence and shortwave direct radiative effects (DREs) of above-cloud aerosols (ACAs) over global oceans using 8 years (2007–2014) of collocated CALIOP and MODIS observations. ...
