Temperature, relative humidity, and divergence response to high rainfall events in the tropics: Observations and models
(American Meteorological Society, 2010)
Radiosonde measurements and Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) 3B42 rainfall are used to construct composite anomaly patterns of temperature, relative humidity, and divergence about high rainfall events in the ...
A one-dimensional cloud model with trimodal convective outflow
(American Meteorological Society, 2009)
The author describes a one-dimensional cloud model designed to investigate the relationships between stratiform downdrafts, congestus outflow, stability, and relative humidity in the tropical lower troposphere. In the ...
The vertical structure of tropical convection and its impact on the budgets of water vapor and ozone
(American Meteorological Society, 2005)
Convective clouds in the Tropics that penetrate the boundary layer inversion preferentially detrain into a shallow outflow layer (2-5 km) or a deep outflow layer (10-17 km). The properties of these layers are diagnosed ...
Contribution of water vapor dimers to clear sky absorption of solar radiation
(Swedish Geophys. Soc, 1999-03)
Using previously derived-values of the water vapor dimer spectral absorption cross section we calculate the water vapor dimer contribution to the clear sky absorption of solar radiation. We consider the water dimer ...
