Description of Scientific Projects

In the Theoretical Climate Dynamics (TCD) group we study climate dynamics on all time scales -- from intraseasonal (multiple regimes and intraseasonal oscillations), through interannual (ENSO and low-frequency variability of the mid-latitude wind-driven ocean circulation) and interdecadal (variability of the thermohaline ocean circulation), to millenial (slow and fast paleoclimatic variations) -- using the methods of nonlinear dynamics. We apply these methods to observations, numerical models, and experiments concerning the climate system -- the atmosphere, ocean, bio- and cryosphere -- through collaboration with researchers in North America and on other continents.
