The development of cirrus cloud
forecast products based upon operational forecasts from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) was essential to direct the aircraft into selected cirrus cloud
Fahey, 2015: A two-channel, tunable diode laser-based hygrometer for measurement of water vapor and cirrus cloud
ice water content in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere.
Researchers had expected high-level winds to disperse its contrails, but instead, they appeared to attract more clouds that continued to grow as they were blown southwards until eventually they formed a hazy high-level blanket of cirrus cloud
across southeast England.
When cirrus clouds
contain ice crystals with the proper orientation, a pair of these parhelia (Greek for "beside the Sun") can appear 22[degrees] or more to either side of the Sun, sometimes on a sky-circling band called the parhelic circle.
Penner, 2010: Cirrus clouds
in a global climate model with a statistical cirrus cloud
In the other cases, the presence of clouds increases the emission, with a contribution that is visible primarily in the transparent windows, and ranging from the small effect of a thin cirrus cloud
(red curve in Fig.
proposed that cirrus clouds
regulate ocean surface temperatures in the tropical Pacific (SN: 5/11/91, p.
full) perspective in Science, researchers investigate the pros, cons and nuances of thinning cirrus clouds
to allow more heat to escape Earth.
What two-word name can mean a wispy cirrus cloud
and a pond plant?
While homogeneous freezing is important for cirrus cloud
formation, heterogeneous freezing is the dominant process by which mixed-phase clouds form.
Our upper air witnessed two examples of tropical advection in the higher levels: lengthy bands of Cirrus cloud
emanating from equatorial latitudes closer to South America and melding with mid latitude flows south and east of the sub-continent.
The U-2 flew above, in and below cirrus cloud
formations to take thermal temperature measurements and aerial cloud formation photographs.
The persistent formation of contrails is associated with increased cirrus cloud
cover, another factor warming the Earth's surface.
His attempts to precisely describe the cirrus cloud
reflect the need to extend descriptive grammar towards a rhythmically paratactic prolixity, when the object of description itself is in a state of constant transformation.
The new data could be used to improve models of cirrus cloud
formation, the researchers say.
