EH2r pre-journal work in progress

Coming soon...   Pre Peer reviewed Article construction site

    For science journal editors,  those who actually look for interesting articles.  Here is a preview oh EH2r,  horizontal refraction work in progress,  if editors are interested in publishing any of these articles please contact the author  found on the bottom of my main web page.

Paper 2012 1 .    Ascending boundary layers.  

           Near refraction analysis have shown disparities between radiosonde measurements and simultaneous optical refraction readings.  A discussion
of why these conflicting results exists.   Progressive disappearance of extreme inversions at the surface to air interface were observed first hand.    Diagonal green flashes reveal what happened,  the  high Arctic SAI is becoming more and more adiabatic.

    Paper ready for review and publication since May 2012.

Paper 2013 1 .  Pre massive blizzard optical distortions.  

            While remote sensing gives enormous insight in upcoming weather.  Hard to explain near refraction optics do the same.

      Paper writing in progress.

Paper 2013 2.    Greater thermal influence of the horizon sun.

                      This small paper is rather photographic proof of thermal influence of the very low elevation sun.  Commonly thought as contributing next to nothing in terms of heat ,   the low sun in clear Arctic air actually significantly  alters the structure of the lower troposphere,  especially with thinner sea ice.   Days of data show a sun with zenith
angle 84 degrees or greater reshaping the structure of the lower troposphere.

   Paper writing in progress.

Ilulissat Mystery early sunrise, highly likely a refraction event

Neven suggested commenting on a news article similar to this one... It is not surprising to read  about such an event, refraction is very poorly misunderstood. Even for top notch scientists.

Its been excessively warm over Baffin Bay,

Ilulissat glacier ice ensures
steep inversion air layers right off the surface of its ice. EH2r web page illustrates refraction events, steep air inversions create refraction causing sunrises to shift upwards given the impression that the sun has moved Northwards (to the left by azimuth). However, probable Ilulissat case its not due to bitterly cold air just starting to mix with warm spring sun, its the opposite, extremely warm air over a not as cold as before glacier generating the same surprise. Arctic people have and will observe these events more and more, and its a known effect formed by a great warming just above frozen ground air.  A glacier makes refraction effects a certainty, but there can also be a glacier dropping in height or a combination of topography and refraction, but without actual facts its hard to be certain.

{can anyone confirm by description or picture the actual Ilulissat 2 day early sunrise event, the actual sunrise image will put a close to any other speculation, I am going to print this EH2r article when I review some harder facts},   So far Feb 13,  no hard facts have been shown,  just  a news story,
seems very difficult to pin point exactly the reason for this long night sunrise, a description would suffice, but I have no contacts there,  either way Ilulissat case has certainly something to do about warming.

Thanks Neven!
