A Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) algorithm is developed to measure both cloud liquid water path (LWP) and cloud frequency (CF) over the oceans. For climate analysis, the LWP and CF parameters are computed on pentad and monthly timescales. Comparisons are made between cloud frequencies...
Regional climatic change, including significant reductions in Amazon Basin evaporation and precipitation, has been predicted by numerical simulations of total tropical forest removal. These results have been shown to be very sensitive to the prescription of the albedo shift associated with...
The spatial and temporal variability of the southwest Pacific Ocean is examined with the aim of describing the physical processes operating on interannual and decadal timescales. The study takes advantage of a new temperature atlas of the upper 450 m of the southwest Pacific Ocean, obtained from...
East Asian countries experienced record-breaking heat waves and drought conditions during the summer monsoon season of 1994. This study documents the large-scale circulation associated with the drought and suggests a forcing mechanism responsible for the anomalous evolution of the East Asian...
In order to calculate the vertical motion over some high mountain regions, such as Greenland, an ωω -equation without the quasigeostrophic approximation in σσ -coordinates has been developed. A dynamic method for retrieving precipitation over Greenland is based on this ωω -equation. The...
Three statistically optimal approaches, which have been proposed for detecting anthropogenic climate change, are intercompared. It is shown that the core of all three methods is identical. However, the different approaches help to better understand the properties of the optimal detection. Also,...
