The lifetimes of tropical cloud regimes
2010 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This MSc thesis in Space Engineering is about the lifetime of cloud regimes over the tropical and subtropical regions of Earth. The International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project D1 dataset and the cloud regimes, derived using a cluster algorithm on cloud top pressure and optical thickness, form the basis of the analysis of the lifetime. The cloud regimes are measusered how long they appear at a certain location. Significant differences were found, among other things between convectives cloud states and suppressed ones. Transitions between the eight regimes were also examined and it was found that some regimes transformed to regimes with similar physical properties whereas others didn’t, suggesting that some regimes are transition regimes and others represent a more stable or unstable end state.
