讲座摘要

Frontiers of satellite observations and their applications

Satellite observations have revolutionized how we view and understand our home planet. This seminar present practical examples to show how to use measurements from satellite to understand the physical processes that govern the Earth’s atmosphere and ocean, and to address scientific challenges of weather and climate.

 

Building A Successful Career in Science and Technology

It's pretty hard to pursue career as a scientist or engineer if you can't seem to find something you'd love doing. This seminar brings together inspiring stories of how we change our daily experiences to achieve some of the most important breakthroughs in science and technology. The topics will include: “What determines success?”  “How can we excel in science and technology?”, “Where does passion come from?” and “How US research institutes select future scientists and engineers?”.

 

Contrasting effects on deep convective clouds

Convective clouds produce a significant proportion of the global precipitation and play an important role in the energy and water cycles. We quantify changes of the convective cloud ice mass-weighted altitude centroid (ZIWC) as a function of aerosol optical thickness (AOT). Analyses are conducted in smoke, dust and polluted continental aerosol environments over South America, Central Africa and Southeast Asia, using the latest measurements from the CloudSat and CALIPSO satellites. We find aerosols can inhibit or invigorate convection, depending on aerosol type and concentration. On average, smoke tends to suppress convection and results in lower ZIWC than clean clouds. Polluted continental aerosol tends to invigorate convection and promote higher ZIWC. The dust aerosol effects are regionally dependent and their signs differ from place to place. Moreover, we find that the aerosol inhibition or invigoration effects do not vary monotonically with AOT and the variations depend strongly on aerosol type. Our observational findings indicate that aerosol type is one of the key factors in determining the aerosol effects on convective clouds.

 

Simulation of remote sensing of clouds and humidity from space using a combined platform of radar and multifrequency microwave radiometers

This study presents a simulated simultaneous retrieval of mass mean cloud ice particle effective diameter, ice water content, water vapor, and temperature profiles using a combination of a 94GHz cloud radar and multifrequency (118, 183, 240, 310, 380, 664, and 850 GHz) millimeter and submillimeterwave radiometers from a space platform. The retrieval capabilities and uncertainties of the combined radar and microwave radiometers are quantified. We show that this combined active and passive remote sensing approach with SmallSat technologies addresses a gap in the current stateoftheart remote sensing measurements of ice cloud properties, especially deriving vertical profiles of ice cloud particle sizes in the atmosphere together with the ambient thermodynamic conditions. Therefore, this new approach can serve as a plausible candidate for future missions that target cloud and precipitation processes to improve weather forecasts and climate predictions. 

 

Publishing with AGU

The preparation of a manuscript publication is a very important step for scientists to make contributions to a specific scientific field. The purpose of this editorial seminar is to discuss how to approach and write a well-organized manuscript for a successful publication in the AGU journals. The topics will include: “AGU Journals, Impact Factors and Manuscript Types”, “Keys for Successful Submission”, “Keys for Reviewing Manuscript” and “’Secrets’ of how editors handle the review process”.
