–white arrows lifting up mountains), and convergence between sea-breeze (red arrows) and easterly (blue arrows) winds. Sensor sites are also shown, including the NWS NEXRAD site (NEX), Tropinet radar sites (purple dots) and ranges (purple dashes), the UPRM site (UPRM), the La Parguera site (LP), San Juan (SJ), NRCS soil moisture sites (black dots), and the Cabo Rojo soil moisture site (silver dot). To better understand how island-scale processes contribute to regional-scale Caribbean precipitation, improved

. Important feedbacks for climate and the other modeling communities have been identified by the COST Action ES1004. WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF METEOROLOGY ON THE ABUNDANCE AND PROPERTIES (CHEMICAL, MICROPHYSICAL, AND RADIATIVE) OF AEROSOLS ON URBAN–REGIONAl–GLOBAL SCALES? Many processes relevant for air quality depend on meteorological conditions. Some examples include the importance of wind and turbulence for the release of dust and sea salt aerosols, humidity for dry deposition, temperature for volatile

that variations in cloud-active particles, their emission, aging, interaction with other aerosols, and their response to weather conditions could compound these feedbacks by inducing additional variability across geographic sites and over time. These traits of aerosols could also be influenced by regional meteorological conditions (i.e., temperature, relative humidity, and dynamics). Disentangling the macrophysical meteorological factors from the aerosol microphysical effects on precipitation

’s platforms (and the datasets generated from them) do not typically cross the U.S.–Canadian border because they are constrained by jurisdictional (rather than basin or watershed) boundaries. These inconsistencies can propagate into gaps, discontinuities, and errors in corresponding datasets. Regional precipitation datasets from NOAA, for example, typically originate from radar, satellite, and monitoring station data that are quality controlled within each of NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS) River
