  • A one-dimensional cloud model with trimodal convective outflow 

    Folkins, Ian (American Meteorological Society, 2009)
    The author describes a one-dimensional cloud model designed to investigate the relationships between stratiform downdrafts, congestus outflow, stability, and relative humidity in the tropical lower troposphere. In the ...
  • 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 ...
