  1. 1. Satellite measurements of upper tropospheric water

    Author : Mattias Ekström; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cloud ice; upper troposphere; microwave; retrieval; the Odin satellite; humidity; limb-sounding;

    Abstract : Water vapour and clouds in the upper troposphere have strong influence on the Earth's climate system. The present uncertainties regarding the distribution and feedback mechanisms of water to a changing climate are today among the greatest limitations for accurate climate predictions. READ MORE

    Abstract : .... READ MORE

  3. 3. Satellite measurements and climate modelling of water in the tropical upper troposphere

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Alfvénlaboratoriet

    Author : Marston Sheldon Johnston; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Model; Satellite; Climate; Humidity; Radiation; Tropics;

    Abstract : The International Panel on Climate Change (2007) has identified key areas of uncertainty with regards to future climate change, e.g., the upper troposphere. A portion of the uncertain- ties come from climate models and this makes model accuracy very important. READ MORE

  4. 4. Auroral Electric Fields From Satellite Observations and Numerical Modelling

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Tomas Karlsson; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Satellite measurements; electric fields; ionosphere; magnetosphere; diverging electric fields; downward current region; black aurora; westward travelling surge; auroral bulge; subauroral ion drifts SAID ; subauroral electric fields SAEF ; mid-latit; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis is about electrodynamics of thehigh-latitude/auroral region of near-Earth space. The work ismainly based on electric field measurements made by the doubleprobe instrument on the Freja satellite at altitudes ofapproximately 800-1700 km, together with measurements fromother instruments on the same satellite, and ground-basedinstrumentation.

  5. 5. Satellite and radiosonde measurements of atmospheric humidity

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Ajil Kottayil; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Earth sciences - Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences; Geovetenskap - Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap; Rymdteknik; Space Technology;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis is based on two papers which are related to the study ofatmospheric humidity. The first paper mainly focuses on a non linear method forretrieving atmospheric humidity from infrared sounder satellite measurements basedon fuzzy clustering which could potentially improve the retrieval accuracy.
