Atmospheric Dynamics & Variability

Department of Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University

*We are looking for stellar earth scientists who love data analysis to join the Barnes Group team! This includes at the Masters, PhD and postdoctoral level. Please email Libby if you are interested.

Our research covers atmospheric dynamics and variability under different climates. This includes...

  • machine learning for atmospheric and climate research
  • causal discovery
  • large-scale atmospheric dynamics and climate change
  • sub-seasonal to seasonal prediction of extreme events, temperature, and precipitation
  • tropical-extratropical teleconnections
  • eddy-mean flow dynamics (e.g. annular-modes, wave propagation)
  • air quality and its ties to the large-scale circulation
  • the use of simplified models to understand the general circulation
