The goal of the work is to understand how soot aerosols react with oxidizing agents, such as ozone, the hydroxyl radical, and oxides of nitrogen.
The goal of this research is to study the role of subtropical precipitating systems in the large-scale circulation using both observations and mesoscale and global circulation models.
The ultimate goals of the proposed work are to estimate the predictability of mesoscale features embedded within different synoptic-scale flow regimes and to identify key physical processes that control the limit of predictability at the mesoscale through explicit simulations of idealized moist baroclinic waves and case studies of high-impact weather event. This was the only ONR YIP award to an atmospheric scientist in 2004.
This project is focused on the study of the single-scattering and radiative transfer within ice and mixed-phase clouds from remote sensing and radiative forcing perspectives.
