Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.
Retrieval of aerosol microphysical properties from extinction and backscatter measurements from multiwavelength Raman Lidar
Raymond Hoff and Patricia Sawamura, Department of Physics

The problem of retrieving microphysical properties(such as size distribution, refractive index and effective radius) from optical data is a severely ill-posed problem that require regularization methods to stabilize the solution space. In this project we will try different methods to accomplish that.
