Passive microwave quantification of tropical cyclone inner-core cloud populations relative to subsequent intensity change

Characteristics of over 15 000 tropical cyclone (TC) inner cores are evaluated coincidentally using 37- and 85-GHz passive microwave data to quantify the relative prevalence of cold clouds (i.e., deep convection and stratiform clouds) versus …

Seasonal and regional differences in the rainfall and intensity of isolated convection over South America

Isolated precipitating convection, though a minor contributor to total rainfall in the tropics, is important to regional and seasonal climate variability because its diabatic heating structure is characteristic of the convectively inactive phase of …
