A giant lenticular cloud was seen in Maryland at about 5:50 pm on March 1st, 2022. ESSIC/CISESS Post-doctoral Associate Daile Zhang captured the cloud in Figure 1 below and a video posted to her Twitter account. GOES-East also detected the cloud as seen in Figure 2 and 3.
Lauren Zamora, ESSIC Assistant Research Scientist and a contractor in the Climate and Radiation Laboratory at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, has a new article out in Journal of Climate titled, “Saharan dust aerosols change deep convective cloud prevalence, possibly by inhibiting marine new particle formation”.
