(2015-07-20)The projected increase in global air traffic raises concerns about the potential impact aviation emissions have on climate and air quality. Previous studies have shown that aircraft cruise emissions (emitted between 9-11 ...
The potential implications of bioenergy crop production for water and energy balance and carbon and nitrogen dynamics in the United States (2015-07-16)In this dissertation, I systematically investigate the impacts of large-scale growth of bioenergy crops on water and energy balance and coupled carbon and nitrogen dynamics in the US. To achieve this objective, I apply ...
(2015-07-06)Recent field observations suggest that cloud-top precipitation generating cells (GCs) are ubiquitous in the warm-frontal and comma-head regions of midlatitude winter cyclones. The presence of fall streaks emanating from ...
(2001)A severe lake-effect snowstorm on 25--26 December 1993 was successfully modeled using the Penn State/NCAR MM5 model at 7 km grid resolution. Another simulation performed with Lake Michigan removed from the domain resulted ...
Understanding the Maintenance and Seasonal Transitions of the Climatological Stationary Waves in the Atmosphere (2000)The deficiency of the GCM in simulating the observed reanalysis stationary waves mainly originates from the deficiencies of the GCM simulated diabatic heating field. Therefore, a significant improvement in the parameterization ...
