(2017-07-20)Black carbon (BC) aerosol strongly absorbs visible light and therefore has a warming impact on climate. Quantifying this impact requires us to develop faithful model representations of its climate-relevant properties, such ...
Evaluating the regional impact of aircraft emissions on climate and the capabilities of simplified climate model (2017-07-17)Unlike other transportation sectors where pollutant emissions usually occur only near the Earth’s surface, aviation emissions happen primarily at altitudes of 8-12 km above the surface, impacting the upper troposphere and ...
Toward better subseasonal-to-seasonal prediction: physics-oriented model evaluation and predictability of tropical cyclones (2017-06-26)Skillful subseasonal-to-seasonal (hereafter S2S; 10 days - 12 weeks) prediction can greatly benefit decision-making on resource management and agricultural planning that falls into the weekly to seasonal time ranges. The ...
(2017-06-30)Knowledge of ice crystal particle size distributions (PSDs) is critical for parameterization schemes for atmospheric models and remote sensing retrieval schemes. In-situ observations are commonly used to obtain PSDs and ...
(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 ...
