Cloud Feedback

PI: Patrick Taylor
Institution: Florida State University
Abstract:
This data will be used to quantify the cloud feedback using a new technique developed by Lu and Cai (2007). Posed questions include, what is the cloud feedback factor, how much of the climate sensitivity is related to clouds, and how does the interannual variability of clouds and the general circulation affect one another? This new technique for quantifying climate feedbacks is useful because it allows for the separation of individual feedbacks and does not require a lapse rate feedback. Thus, we will be able get a more robust estimate of cloud feedback than previously obtained.
