(2017-04-27)Land is scarce in Bangladesh: Bangladesh occupies ~0.03 % of world’s land area, but supports over ~2% of human population. This high population to land ratio, combined with socioeconomic development has placed tremendous ...
Controls of updraft size, cold pool characteristics, and potential tornado intensity in supercell thunderstorms (2017-04-27)While the overall understanding of moist convective processes has advanced greatly, the two-way interconnections between convection initiation, updraft structure, and subsequent cold pool generation are not well understood. ...
Investigation of the positive interaction between the primary and secondary circulation and the roles of different types of precipitation in tropical cyclone formation (2017-04-21)Our understanding of tropical cyclogenesis, one of the greatest mysteries in tropical meteorology, has advanced significantly in the past few decades, partly owing to the availability of satellite data and high-resolution ...
(2016-12-07)The semi-arid Salt and Verde River basins in Arizona depend, in part, on Atmospheric River (AR)-related precipitation for meeting the water demands of the Phoenix metropolitan area. On the other hand, the region is also ...
Analyzing the effects of unforced natural variability and anthropogenic forcing on ENSO variability using CESM (2016-12-05)The El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is an important contributor to Earth’s inter-annual climate variability, with worldwide weather effects (Whetton and Rutherfurd, 1994; Hoerling and Zhong, 1997; Dai and Wigley, 2000). ...
