Calibration and Flight of a Balloon-Borne O2 Atmospheric Band Fabry-Perot Spectrometer
The Fabry-Perot spectrometer is an extremely useful tool for retrieving spectral information of the Oxygen A-band at nadir viewing angles, as well as for remote sensing purposes. Testing the performance of this spectrometer ...
Evaluating the Top-down Emission Rate Retrieval Algorithm (TERRA) Using Virtual Aircraft-based Sampling Within the GEM-MACH Model
Between August 13th and September 7th of 2013, aircraft-based measurements of air pollutants were collected in support of the Joint Canada-Alberta Implementation Plan on Oil Sands Monitoring (JOSM). The Top-down Emission ...
Investigation into the Spatial Distribution of AGN Companion Galaxies in Gravitationally Isolated Environments
Active galaxies are an important subclass of galaxies, distinguished by an energetic core driven by enhanced accretion onto a central supermassive black hole. However, this accretion mechanism inevitably opens up a problem: ...
Impact of Saharan Dust Aerosols on Radiation and Clouds Over the Tropical East Atlantic Ocean
Aerosols affect the atmospheric processes by interacting with shortwave (SW) and longwave (LW) radiations and also by modifying the cloud microphysics (direct and indirect effects respectively). This study investigates the ...
Quantum-Mechanical Approach to Collision-Induced Radiative Emissions
Charge exchange is a process that occurs in an atomic collision where an electron from one of the colliding particles is transferred to the other; typically from a neutral atom or molecule to an ion. Electrons transferred ...
