In this study we geostatistically interpolate spatial Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) for the entire Colorado River using multiple interpolation methods and multiple combinations of the snow telemetry (SNOTEL) and snow-course data. This study evaluated four techniques: Inverse Distance Weighting (IDW), Optimal Distance Averaging (ODA), hypsometric (regression(More)
A major characteristic of the hydrometeorology of semi-arid regions is the occurrence of intense thunderstorms that develop very rapidly and cause severe flooding. In summer, monsoon air mass is often of subtropical origin and is characterized by convective instability. The existing observational network has major deficiencies for those regions in providing(More)
Ten avian serotype 3 paramyxoviruses were isolated for the first time in Israel from passerine and psittacine imported caged birds. The birds were submitted for investigation of an illness characterized by nonspecific signs of weakness, anorexia, vomiting, and sneezing. In addition, only the parakeets developed specific neurologic signs. In bacteriologic(More)
Studies show a divergence in correlation between aerosol and cloud proxies, which has been thought of in the past as the results of varying physical mechanisms. Though modeling studies have supported this idea, from an observational standpoint it is difficult to attribute with confidence the correlations to specific physical mechanisms. We explore a(More)
