    • Aerosol-cloud Interactions from Urban, Regional, to Global Scales 

      Wang, Yuan (2013-07-30)
      The studies in this dissertation aim at advancing our scientific understandings about physical processes involved in the aerosol-cloud-precipitation interaction and quantitatively assessing the impacts of aerosols ...
    • An Affine Based Homomorphic Encryption Scheme 

      Loyka, Kyle (2016-08-30)
      Standard encryption protocols do not allow for native searching or modification of data, without decryption. In this scenario, whoever is performing the operations on this file must also have the encryption key. Homomorphic ...
    • Investigation of the aerosol-cloud interaction using the WRF framework 

      Li, Guohui (2009-05-15)
      In this dissertation, a two-moment bulk microphysical scheme with aerosol effects is developed and implemented into the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model to investigate the aerosol-cloud interaction. Sensitivities ...
    • Satellite Remote Sensing of Mid-level Clouds 

      Jin, Hongchun 1980- (2012-11-07)
      This dissertation aims to study the mid-level clouds using satellite observations. It consists of two major parts: characteristics (including cloud top/base heights, cloud top pressure and temperature, and cloud thickness) ...
    • Use of airs and modis thermal infrared channels to retrieve ice cloud properties 

      Yost, Christopher Rogers (Texas A&M University, 2007-04-25)
      In this study, we use thermal infrared channels to retrieve the optical thickness and effective particle radius of ice clouds. A physical model is used in conjunction with Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) temperature ...
