Tropical Convective Systems

Courtney Schumacher is studying tropical convection using ground and spaceborne radar observations, with research foci ranging from shallow precipitating cumulus to anvil production from deep convection. In addition, her group is looking at the impact of the latent and radiative heating associated with the convection on the general circulation.



TWP-ICE Field Experiment

The Tropical Warm Pool International Cloud Experiment took place in Darwin, Australia in early 2006 to study deep convection and its associated cirrus production. Courtney Schumacher and other Texas A&M participants focused on radar analysis of convective towers like the one pictured.
