• Lidar Method to Estimate Emission Rates from Extended Sources 

    Willis, William B.;Eichinger, William E.;Prueger, John H.;Hapeman, Cathleen J.;Li, Hong;Buser, Michael D.;Hatfield, Jerry L.;Wanjura, John D.;Holt, Gregory A.;Torrents, Alba;Plenner, Sean J.;Clarida, Warren;Browne, Stephen D.;Downey, Peter M.;Yao, Qi (American Meteorological Society, 2016)
    AbstractPollutant emissions to the atmosphere commonly derive from nonpoint sources that are extended in space. Such sources may contain area, volume, line, or a combination of emission types. Currently, point measurements, ...
  • Estimating Range-Dependent Evaporation Duct Height 

    Zhao, Xiaofeng;Yardim, Caglar;Wang, Dongxiao;Howe, Bruce M. (American Meteorological Society, 2017)
    AbstractThe refractivity from clutter (RFC) technique has been proved to be an effective way to estimate atmospheric duct structure. An important issue for RFC is how to make the estimate more robust, especially in ...

    McMillan, Justine M.;Hay, Alex E. (American Meteorological Society, 2016)
    AbstractSpectral and structure function methods are implemented to compute the dissipation rate ε from broadband, diverging-beam acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) data collected at four sites in a high-flow tidal ...
  • Ceilometer-Based Analysis of Shanghai’s Boundary Layer Height (under Rain- and Fog-Free Conditions) 

    Peng, Jie;Grimmond, C. S. B.;Fu, Xinshu;Chang, Yuanyong;Zhang, Guangliang;Guo, Jibing;Tang, Chenyang;Gao, Jie;Xu, Xiaodong;Tan, Jianguo (American Meteorological Society, 2017)
    AbstractTo investigate the boundary layer dynamics of the coastal megacity Shanghai, China, backscatter data measured by a Vaisala CL51 ceilometer are analyzed with a modified ideal curve fitting algorithm. The boundary ...
  • Designing Effective Tsunami Messages: Examining the Role of Short Messages and Fear in Warning Response 

    Sutton, Jeannette;Vos, Sarah C.;Wood, Michele M.;Turner, Monique (American Meteorological Society, 2017)
    AbstractAlthough tsunamis have the potential to be extremely destructive, relatively little research on tsunami messaging has taken place. Discovering whether tsunami warning messages can be written in a way that leads to ...
