    A low frequency record on tropospheric HCFC since the late s is available from measurements of the Southern Hemisphere Cape Grim Air Archive (CGAA) and a few Northern Hemisphere air samples (mostly from Trinidad Head) using the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE) instrumentation and calibrations. Results show that declining cloud cover caused by the weakening of both the South Asian summer monsoon and local-scale atmospheric upward motion mainly led to the accelerated ground surface warming during the summers of –, whereas the decreased surface albedo caused by the snow melting was the major warming factor in winter.

    Five years of continuous observations indicate that interannual variation in winter air temperature and snow cover conditions control ground thermal regimes. At sandy aeolian sites, thin snow cover and high thermal conductivity promote rapid freezing, high rates of ground cooling, and low near-surface ground temperatures ( to °C). online version of the program book.

    Snow cover (C) Snow cover extent in the Northern Hemisphere has fallen by 7 % in March and 11 % in April during the past four decades. In winter and autumn no significant changes have occurred. Snow mass in Europe has decreased by 7 % in March from to Full text of "Satellite Altimetry for Geodesy, Geophysics and Oceanography [electronic resource]: Proceedings of the International Workshop on Satellite Altimetry, a joint workshop of IAG Section III Special Study Group SSG and IAG Section II, September .

Snow Cover: present Mean annual northern hemisphere snow cover is million average, million km2 lies over Eurasia and million km2 over North America (including Greenland).In figure 1, the variability of snow cover over the Northern Hemisphere between January and August is expressed through anomalies of individual months and twelve-month running means.

Cells with at least 50% of their surface covered with snow were considered snow covered. All other cells were considered snow free. In this paper we use monthly means of snow cover ex-tent calculated using a routine described fully in Robinson.

Prior to Maythe SCE CDR is based on weekly, satellite-derived Northern Hemisphere snow cover extent maps. These maps were initially produced by trained NOAA meteorologists visually interpretting photographic copies of shortwave imagery, and as time progressed, new sources of imagery as they became available.

Associations between Continental-Scale snow cover anomalies and air mass frequencies across Eastern North America Article in International Journal of Climatology 22(12) - October The major hypothesis of this study is that continental-scale snow cover anomalies should influence air mass frequencies because of their important effects on land-surface energy budgets.

To test this hypothesis, satellite-derived Northern Hemisphere snow cover data were used in conjunction with a unique air mass classification routine to. The study area is located in Liaoning Province, northeastern China (between 38° 43'N to 43° 2'N and ° 37'E to ° 33' E) (Figure 1), covering an area ofsquare kilomet ers.

Introduction. The annual cycling of water is the largest movement of a chemical substance at the surface of the earth.

Evaporation from the tropics and transport to higher latitudes not only transfers water, but also much of the absorbed heat energy (Schlesinger, ).Besides a major role in the redistribution of the earth's surface energy, water vapor plays a key role in regulating the Cited by: Visit to get more information about this book, to buy it in print, or to download it as a free PDF.
