Reconciling tropospheric temperature trends from the microwave sounding unit
The University of Alabama at Huntsville (UAH), Remote Sensing Systems (RSS), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have constructed long-term temperature records for deep atmospheric layers using satellite microwave sounding unit (MSU) and advanced microwave sounding unit (AMSU) observations. However, ...
On the structure of atmospheric warming in models and observations: Implications for the lapse rate feedback
This dissertation investigates the structure of atmospheric warming in observations and general circulation models (GCMs). Theory and GCMs suggest that warming is amplified in the tropical upper troposphere relative to the lower troposphere and the surface -- a phenomenon known as vertical amplification. We assess model and ...
