The ESA EARTHCARE Explorer Mission features the first spaceborne atmospheric Doppler radar. Researchers from our Department are involved in the development of the algorithms for the Exploitation of the spaceborne Doppler radar observations.
The J.S. Marshall Radar Observatory: At McGill University, we own and operate several weather radars and other meteorological sensors. Our large S-band Doppler radar is used for weather surveillance around the Montreal area.
Simulated fields of trade-wind convection impinging on an idealized island ridge with a height of 500m. Conditions for these cases are derived from field campaigns (BOMEX and RICO) over the western Atlantic Ocean. By Prof. Daniel Kirshbaum
Responses in the zonal-mean zonal winds of the Northern Hemisphere stratosphere to instantaneous doubling of atmospheric CO2. For reference, contours of the control winds are overlaid. The 3 panels represent 3 different experiments. By Dr. Barbara Winter
It is often quoted that every doubling of atmospheric CO2 decreases the outgoing radiation by ~3.7 W m-2. However, this relationship was not fully understood: A few new papers by Huang's group have investigates
