Abstract:

The priority goal of this research is to advance the utilization of satellite remote sensing methods and mesoscale simulation models for improved prediction of marine stratus and boundary layer structure. Related goals include the study of marine stratus evolution and analysis of microwave refractivity at the interface of the cloudy marine boundary layer and free troposphere.
