An Evaluation of Marine Boundary Layer Cloud Property Simulations in the Community Atmosphere Model Using Satellite Observations: Conventional Subgrid Parameterization versus CLUBB
(American Meteorological Society (ACM), 2018-02-19)
This paper presents a satellite-observation-based evaluation of the marine boundary layer (MBL) cloud properties from two Community Atmosphere Model, version 5 (CAM5), simulations, one with the standard parameterization ...
Quantifying the Impacts of Subpixel Reﬂectance Variability on Cloud Optical Thickness and Eﬀective Radius Retrievals Based On High-Resolution ASTER Observations
(American Geophysical Union, 2018-04-26)
Recently, Zhang et al. (2016, https://doi.org/10.1002/2016JD024837) presented a mathematical framework based on a second-order Taylor series expansion in order to quantify the plane-parallel homogeneous bias (PPHB) in cloud ...
Comparisons of bispectral and polarimetric retrievals of marine boundary layer cloud microphysics: case studies using a LES–satellite retrieval simulator
(Copernicus Publications, 2018-06-26)
Many passive remote-sensing techniques have been developed to retrieve cloud microphysical properties from satellite-based sensors, with the most common approaches being the bispectral and polarimetric techniques. These ...
The importance of considering sub-grid cloud variability when using satellite observations to evaluate the cloud and precipitation simulations in climate models
(Copernicus Publications, 2018-08-03)
Satellite cloud observations have become an indispensable tool for evaluating general circulation models (GCMs). To facilitate the satellite and GCM comparisons, the CFMIP (Cloud Feedback Model Inter-comparison Project) ...
Assessing Water Budget Sensitivity to Precipitation Forcing Errors in Potomac River Basin Using the VIC Hydrologic Model CyberTraining: Big Data + High-Performance Computing + Atmospheric Sciences
The Potomac River Basin is a watershed located on the East Coast of the USA across West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. Inter-annual variations in precipitation makes it challenging ...
