The group's primary research objective is to understand the variability of the atmosphere to better interpret and predict changes within a range of climates. To reach this end, we use multiple data types: observations, reanalyses, 2-D models, idealized general circulation models (GCMs) and state-of-the-art climate models. Please see below for details on our ongoing research.
