Desert Research Institute

Dr. David Mitchell has contributed to the peer-reviewed literature in the atmospheric science sub-disciplines of cloud physics, radiation, remote sensing and climate dynamics (North American monsoon).  He published the first paper on the radiation management method known as “cirrus cloud thinning” (CCT) and has developed a satellite remote sensing method to test the viability of CCT and to verify its impact should it ever be tested in a field campaign.  He has given 40 invited talks at universities and research institutes in the USA, the U.K., Germany, Mexico, Norway, France, and Sweden.
