NASA Langley 2002 American Meteorological Society Tip Sheet
Scientists from NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., will report on new atmospheric science research at the annual American Meteorological Society (AMS) meeting in Orlando, Fl., Jan. 13-17, 2002. Details of scheduled papers and poster sessions follow:
A first look at observations of the Earths energy budget from the Clouds and the Earths Radiant Energy System (CERES) instruments on the Terra satellite that show intraseasonal variations in the Tropics is presented by Takmeng Wong.
A better approach to obtaining the most accurate geographic information from a new CERES Terra data product at the NASA Langley Atmospheric Sciences Data Center is presented by John Olson.
A new method of analyzing Earth Observing System satellite data to improve the simulation of cloud processes in global climate models is presented by Kuan-Man Xu.
CERES measurements from the Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission satellite that tests a new global climate cooling hypothesis and disproves the theorys fundamental assumptions is presented by Bing Lin.
An overview of a web-based data set, called the Surface Meteorology and Solar Energy Project, for the renewable energy community is presented by Roberta DiPasquale.
A summary of CERES data products used to study climate change is presented by Susan Sorlie.
An overview of two applications that can create 3-D graphics and plot geographical information on world maps using Earth science data is presented by Nichole Silvers.
New information about rainfall patterns in Virginia over the last 100 years is presented by T. Dale Bess.
