  • Measurements of methyl chloride in the Northwest Atlantic 

    Tait, V. K.; Moore, R. M.; Tokarczyk, R. (American Geophysical Union, 1994-04)
    Methyl chloride was measured directly in seawater using a purge and trap system and gas chromatography with electron capture detection. The results indicate that surface waters of the northwest Atlantic are a source of ...
  • Origin of lapse rate changes in the upper tropical troposphere 

    Folkins, Ian (American Meteorological Society, 2002)
    Vertical motions in clouds arise from a variety of thermodynamic processes, including latent heat release, evaporative cooling, melting, and cloud radiative heating. In the Tropics, the net upward vertical mass flux from ...
  • The vertical structure of tropical convection and its impact on the budgets of water vapor and ozone 

    Folkins, Ian; Martin, Randall V. (American Meteorological Society, 2005)
    Convective clouds in the Tropics that penetrate the boundary layer inversion preferentially detrain into a shallow outflow layer (2-5 km) or a deep outflow layer (10-17 km). The properties of these layers are diagnosed ...
