The Dynamic Meteorology group studies a wide range of topics all of which are related to better understanding the Earth's weather and climate. Currently our research focuses on 3 key aims:
- Understanding the formation of tropical deep convection and its roles in extended range predictability of mid-latitude weather and global climate change
- Interactions of the atmospheric aerosols and microphysical processes with the large-scale flow in the present and future climates
- Dynamics of mid-latitude weather systems and hydrological cycle in a changing climate
In our research we utilize observations, reanalysis data sets, and numerical models of the atmosphere and climate system. Please see “Research” for more about our on-going research.
