Evaluation of reanalysis precipitation estimates in the Canadian precipitation analysis (CaPA)

Choi, Hyaesun 04 January 2017 (has links)
Canadian Precipitation Analysis (CaPA) has been developed by Environment Canada to produce the most accurate near-real-time gridded precipitation estimates. It uses the Global Environmental Multiscale model (GEM) as a background and assimilates the synoptic network of weather stations through Optimal Interpolation. Accurate estimation of gridded precipitation is useful for hydrological modeling, stream ow forecasting, and climate change studies. However, the calibration and validation of hydrologic models requires long temporal coverage of data for a better performance. Since GEM/CaPA data are available only for the recent past (2002-present), the development of historical data sets starting earlier than 2002 becomes important. Using alternative models for producing the atmospheric gridded background is one solution to overcome the short temporal coverage of archived GEM data. This thesis evaluates and analyzes two candidate data sets. ERA-Interim and NARR were selected as potential alternatives to GEM background. The general conclusion of the study is that the use of ERA-Interim and NARR as background elds leads to performance results that are not signi cantly inferior to GEM after assimilation with stations in the CaPA framework. While result with the GEM background remains the best, one can cautiously conclude that for most practical applications, ERA-Interim and/or NARR may be used for the period that predates archived GEM data. The thesis presents a more detailed evaluation of ERA-Interim and NARR for di erent seasons and di erent regions of Canada. / February 2017

The effect of poly (crylic acid) and poly (ethyleneco-maleic anhydride) on nickel powder precipitation

31 July 2012 (has links)
M.Tech. / The study into the effect of additives used in nickel powder precipitation by sodium hypophosphite has been carried out. Reduction experiments were conducted in a 10 L stainless steel batch reactor fitted with 3 baffles, 4-bladed axial impeller, heating element, thermocouple and thermostat. Nickel seed was used to initiate the reduction process, sodium hypophosphite was used as a reducing agent, and ammonia solution was used to adjust pH, poly(ethylene-comaleic anhydride) (EMA) was used as the first additive and poly(acrylic acid) (PA) as the second additive. Reduction experiments were conducted at a temperature between 60oC to 70oC, pH around 8 and a reaction time of 3 min. Synthetic nickel sulfate solution and sodium hypophosphite solutions at concentration of 0.5 g/L were used as nickel feed solution and reducing agent, respectively. Additives were investigated at high and low concentrations of 5 mg/L and 10 mg/L. The effect of additives on reduction behavior of nickel was investigated by studying the evolution of the volume distribution, moments, specific surface area, and rate of reduction and purity of the powder product. EMA was found to be a growth promoter and PA was found to be a growth inhibitor. The highest reduction rate was observed in the presence of EMA and the lowest in the presence of PA. The SEM micrographs of the powder obtained in the presence of EMA and PA showed that the powder was spherical shaped, open, dentritic and more porous compared with that of the seed particles. Both additives were found to increase the pore size of the powder particles. The presence of particle fragments observed in the scanning electron micrographs confirmed breakage as one of the major particulate process. The addition of additives significantly affected the volume distribution at lower concentrations of 5 mg/L. The extent of aggregation increased with increasing dosages of PA and decreased with increasing dosages of EMA. The highest specific surface area was obtained in the presence of 5 mg/L of EMA.

Interannual variability of summer precipitation in Texas and its implication to summer drought

Myoung, Boksoon 15 May 2009 (has links)
Since Texas normally receives most of its precipitation in the warm season, precipitation deficits in summertime may bring serious agricultural and hydrological disasters. While the underlying physical processes of summer precipitation deficit and drought are unclear, they can be understood in terms of convective instability. This research is designed to investigate how convective instability influences monthly mean precipitation in Texas in the summertime and to examine the modulation of convective instability and precipitation by upper-level circulations, soil moisture, vertical motion, and low-tropospheric warm air transport using NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data. Statistical approaches including correlation analysis, multiple linear regression analysis and back trajectory analysis were used to reveal the underlying dynamics of their linkage and causality. The results show that warming at 700 mb and surface dryness result in excessive convective inhibition (CIN), leading to precipitation deficits on a monthly time-scale. Temperature at 700 mb (Tlt) and surface dewpoint have little correlation suggesting different processes contribute to warming at 700 mb and surface dryness, respectively. Correlation analysis among the surface variables emphasizes the role of soil moisture on the dewpoint and thermodynamics at the surface. Back trajectory analysis indicates that a significant contributor to warming at 700 mb is the inversion caused by warm air transport from the Rocky Mountains and the Mexican Plateau where the surface potential temperature is greater than 307.5K rather than by subsidence. It was found that downward motion and warm air transport are enhanced in Texas when upper-level anticyclonic circulation develops in the southern US. Upper-level anticyclonic circulations in the southern US strongly affect Texas summertime precipitation by modulating the principal processes as follows. They increase CIN not only by enhancing warm air transport from the high terrain but also by suppressing occurrence of disturbances. The resulting reduced precipitation and dry soil significantly modulate surface conditions, which elevates CIN and decreases precipitation. The aforementioned chain-reaction of upper-level anticyclone influences can be understood in the context of CIN.

Diurnal variation of tropical precipitation using five years TRMM data

Wu, Qiaoyan 15 November 2004 (has links)
The tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Microwave Imager (TMI) and Precipitation Radar (PR) data are used in this study to reveal diurnal variations of precipitation over the Tropics (30◦S − 30◦N) from January, 1998, to December 2002. The TMI data were used for the regions over oceans and islands and the PR data was used over continents. The observations are sorted regionally to examine the difference in diurnal cycle of rainfall over ocean, island, and continental regions. The rain rate is averaged over individual two hour intervals of local time in each region to include more observations in order to reduce the sampling error. F-test is used to determine those regions whose diurnal cycle is detected at the 95% confidence level. In most oceanic regions there is a maximum at 0400 LST - 0700 LST. The amplitude of diurnal variation over ocean regions with small total rain is a little higher than that of the ocean regions with heavy total rain. The diurnal cycle peaks at 0700 LST - 0800 LST over islands with rainfall variation similar to surrounding oceanic regions. A maximum at 1400 LST - 1500 LST was found in areas over continents with heavy total rain, while the maximum occured at 1900 LST - 2100 LST over continents with lesser total rain. The amplitudes of variation over continents with heavy total rain and with small total rain do not show significant differences. The diurnal cycle in in JJA (June, July, August) and DJF (December, January, February) varies with latitude over continents. A seasonal cycle of diurnal cycle can also be found in some oceanic regions. The diurnal cycle annual change is not evident over continents, while the diurnal cycle annual change over oceans exists in some regions. Island regions in this paper exhibit no evident seasonal and annual diurnal change.
