Fields of Interest

numerical modeling of the climate system (atmosphere, land, ocean and lakes)

Description of Scientific Projects

Our research concentrates on the interactions between the atmosphere, the land (including water bodies) and the ocean at various spatial and temporal scales. Currently, we investigate the impact of landscape heterogeneity at various locations (mid-latitude, tropical regions and boreal forest) on the regional and global climate, using a combination of regional and global climate models and observations. We have also developed a regional two-way coupled ocean-atmosphere model to study coastal, estuary, and lake processes. Current as of 10/17/01
