The Atmospheric Hydrological Cycle and Climate Feedback

PI: Richard Allan
Institution: ESSC, University of Reading, UK
Evaluation of simulations of the atmospheric hydrological cycle (including clouds, water vapor, radiation and precipitation) and its variability utilising Earth Observation measurements of variability on a variety of scales and using a combination of new analysis techniques.
