Mechem Discovers Complexity in Low Ocean Clouds

Monday, September 26, 2016

Department of Geography and Atmospheric Science Associate Professor Dave Mechem recently co-authored an article published in the Journal of Climate that discussed how day-to-day weather influences climatologically important low clouds over the ocean.  He co-authored the article with Simon P. de Szoeke and Kathryn L. Verlinden from Oregon State University and Sandra E. Yuter of North Carolina State University.  

They found that large regions of low clouds over the ocean cool the climate but the mechanisms governing their behavior is far more complex than was previously thought.  The title of the article was “The Time Scales of Variability of Marine Low Clouds.”  Here is a link to the article. 

Great work Dave!
