Ice particles have systematic covariations and temperature dependences that are surprisingly consistent with a simple ice growth theory as revealed by satellites.
The first study to simultaneously investigate precipitation and cloud structures in tropical weather systems concludes observation systems significantly overestimate the height of raining clouds.
Cloud droplet size changes with height, but passive sensors are virtually blind to see it; however, combining passive with active sensors helps profile it in vertically inhomogeneous warm clouds.
The assimilation of cloud-cleared infrared data improves numerical weather forecasting, especially for hurricanes, by providing thermodynamic information in cloudy atmosphere.
Researchers illuminate how and why cloud feedbacks depend on spatial patterns of global warming.
Research on the newest entry in the International Cloud Atlas produces insights into what these cloud features are made of and how they form.
Researchers explain how a new radiative scheme can be incorporated into global weather and climate models to better capture the effect of clouds on climate.
A new framework provides a more comprehensive view of how subpixel variations can create biases in a commonly used method of analyzing cloud properties with satellites.
