Global Atmospheric Dynamics

We study the motion of the atmosphere from synoptic to planetary scales in past, present and future climates, employing modeling approaches over a hierarchy of complexities as well as data-driven statistical approaches. Focus areas include the Hadley cell, momentum transport and superrotation, the NAO and its relation to the North Atlantic storm tracks, as well the as the dynamics underlying extreme midlatitude storms.
