Using Remotely Sensed Fluorescence and Soil Moisture to Better Understand the Seasonal Cycle of Tropical Grasslands
September 1, 2017
Seasonal grasslands account for a large area of Earth's land cover. Annual and seasonal changes in these grasslands have profound impacts on Earth’s carbon, energy, and water cycles. In tropical grasslands, growth is commonly water-lim...
Role of Rossby wave breaking in the variability of large-scale atmospheric transport and mixing
August 24, 2017
We demonstrate that Rossby wave breaking (RWB) plays an important role in both horizontal and vertical large-scale transport/mixing in both observations and idealized general circulation models. In the horizontal direction, RWB contribut...
