  • Flight Operations in Boulder, CO and Lamont, CA

    Flight Operations in Boulder, CO and Lamont, CA

    Flight operations area includes two 740.8 km circles centered around Boulder, Colorado, and the ARM SGP site near Lamont, Oklahoma. Flights selected for this study roughly occurred within the red oval. Flights that sampled in regions around the Rockies were excluded to remove orographic clouds. (Figure from SPartICus Science Overview by Mace et al. []).

  • Measurements of a formaldehyde plume from source E in Houston Ship Channel

    Measurements of a formaldehyde plume from source E in Houston Ship Channel

    Measurements of a formaldehyde plume from source E in Houston Ship Channel. Each circle corresponds to one Mobile DOAS spectrum, and the size and color of the circle indicate the magnitude of the HCHO column evaluated from the spectrum. A line from each circle indicates the direction the wind is blowing from. The plume profile of formaldehyde is also plotted below.

  • Rainfall Characteristics and Landslide Magnitudes

    Rainfall Characteristics and Landslide Magnitudes

    Rainfall characteristics and landslide magnitudes. Cyan indicates wet soil and accumulated groundwater. Panel (a) illustrates a vertical cross-section of a fractured slope, under 909 dry conditions. Driving stress is exactly balanced by resistive stress and their magnitudes 910 are smaller than the maximum resistive stress the bedrock can provide , or 911 by several kPa. Panel (b) illustrates the situation under stratiform precipitation, where rainfall 912 intensity is low but lasts longer.

  • Latitude-height Plots

    Latitude-height Plots

    Latitude-height plot of (a) CloudSat reflectivity over the west coast of North America on 11 October 2006, (b) the CloudSat CPR cloud mask, and (c) the CALIPSO logarithm of 532 nm total backscatter. The resolution is the same as the original resolution of CloudSat and CALIPSO.

  • Tungurahua volcano and environs, overlain on a Digital Elevation Model basemap generated from the Instituto Geogr´afico Militar topography dataset

    Tungurahua volcano and environs, overlain on a Digital Elevation Model basemap generated from the Instituto Geogr´afico Militar topography dataset

    Tungurahua volcano and environs, overlain on a Digital Elevation Model basemap generated from the Instituto Geográfico Militar topography data set, showing prevalent plume dispersion, location of notable habitations and infrastructure, and the position of the volcano observatory and UV spectrometer (DOAS) stations.

  • Combination of Satellite-derived Data Sets of Top-of-Atmosphere Solar Fluxes and Surface Albedo

    Combination of Satellite-derived Data Sets of Top-of-Atmosphere Solar Fluxes and Surface Albedo

    Basic idea of method: Combination of satellite-derived data sets of top-of-atmosphere solar fluxes and surface albedo (area averages) with ground-based observations (point measurements) of surface solar radiation. The used data sets together with their spatial resolution are indicated as well. See respective sections for further details.

  • The Composite Pattern of SSTs

    The Composite Pattern of SSTs

    The composite pattern of SSTs in July between the late and early wet season onset years. Significant difference based on one-way analysis of variance test is shown in shading areas. The boxes represent the domains for Niño 3, Niño 4, NTA, and STA.
