Research brief: New product improves satellite rainfall estimates for data-scarce regions

June 10, 2020 3:05 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: New product improves satellite rainfall estimates for data-scarce regions

Researchers have developed a hybrid approach to estimate recent rainfall that combines satellite-based rainfall estimates with satellite-based soil moisture estimates. When this approach was tested against independent rain gauge measurements it showed notable improvements.

PhD opportunity: The role of wave-cloud coupling in shaping patterns of clouds

September 30, 2019 9:19 am Published by Comments Off on PhD opportunity: The role of wave-cloud coupling in shaping patterns of clouds

This project analyzes satellite images and other observational data to study two-way interactions between convection and tropospheric waves. In particular, it investigates how these interactions influence patterns of convection and clouds. Numerical experiments in the form of high-resolution simulations are designed to support the results.
