Contribution of Tropical Cyclones to the Global Precipitation from Eight Seasons of TRMM Data: Regional, Seasonal, and Interannual Variations
Abstract Based on the University of Utah Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) precipitation feature (PF) database, tropical cyclone PFs (TCPFs) are identified for over 600 storms that reachedExpand

Mutations in centrosomal protein CEP152 in primary microcephaly families linked to MCPH4.
Primary microcephaly is a rare condition in which brain size is substantially diminished without other syndromic abnormalities. Seven autosomal loci have been genetically mapped, and the underlyingExpand

Predicting tropical cyclone rapid intensification using the 37 GHz ring pattern identified from passive microwave measurements
[1] A distinctive satellite-derived precipitative ring pattern around the tropical cyclone (TC) center is found to be related to rapid intensification (RI). The ring pattern appears on the NavalExpand
