Xiquan Dong
University of North Dakota

This talk will cover four topics:

Cloud formation-dissipation processes (more movies/videos will be used to demonstrate the cloud formation-dissipation processes).

Marine and continental low cloud properties derived from ARM surface observations (More than 10-yr of DOE ARM SGP (continental) and 19-month of ARM AZORES (Marine) observations will be used to investigate the similaries and differences between continental and marine low clouds)

Satellite remote sensing (more movies and cloud-radiation results)

Evaluations of CMIP5 GCMs simulated clouds and Radiation (more satellite data, such as CERES, MODIS, CloudSat/CALIPSO, will be used to evaluate the model results).

Finally, we will briefly present other studies from Xiquan Dong's group, such as aerosol properties, deep convective cloud, and extreme events etc.
