(2019-04-24)A Halo Photonics Doppler Wind LiDAR (LiDAR) was deployed during a lake-effect snow event over Lake Michigan to develop a method of processing and reviewing the data collected by the LiDAR, create a conceptual model of the ...
(2019-04-17)This dissertation focuses on understanding the complex interaction of air quality and climate change using a suit of global climate chemistry model simulation using Community Earth System Model (CESM). The first phase of ...
Particle-resolved aerosol modeling on the regional scale – insights into importance of capturing aerosol mixing state (2019-04-11)Aerosol particles in the atmosphere are complex mixtures of different chemical species, and their compositions are constantly evolving as coagulation and multiphase processes act on the particle population. The particles ...
Examination of the behavior of modis-retrieved cloud droplet effective radius through misr-modis data fusion (2018-11-08)Listed as one of the Essential Climate Variables by the Global Climate Observing System, the effective radius (Re) of the cloud drop size distribution plays an important role in the energy and water cycles of the Earth ...
Observed microphysical characteristics and inferred thermodynamic processes contributing to the structure, evolution, and maintenance of nocturnal elevated mesoscale convective systems (2018-09-04)During the 2015 Plains Elevated Convection at Night (PECAN) project, airborne radar and optical array probe data were collected within 42 spiral ascents/descents of the NOAA P-3 aircraft across various regions of six ...
