Observations and simulations of climate forcings and feedbacks. Final report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The research conducted under this agreement sought to use available satellite data sets to document a variety of climate feedback processes by understanding the mechanisms of current climate variability (seasonal, interannual, temperature dependence). Comparisons with feedback processes operating in the GCM were performed to determine which aspects of the variability serve as the most reliable proxies for decadal climate change. This report focuses on three general areas of progress: upper troposphere water vapor, low cloud optical thickness, and tropical cumulus anvil clouds.
