Physical Oceanography Department
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
My research interests span a broad range of topics related to climate and climate dynamics including: air-sea interactions; atmospheric boundary layer dynamics; synoptic meteorology; tropical meteorology and physical oceanography; climate dynamics; coupled climate modeling; global and regional climate variability and changes. These interests are pursued using numerical model simulations of the ocean and the atmosphere, theory of the geophysical fluid dynamics, and the extensive use of satellite and in situ data and global climate model outputs. I am the developer of the Scripps Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Regional (SCOAR) model, which is one of the first and perhaps the most widely used regional coupled models for climate study. For more information, please see the list of my current projects and CV, or directly contact me.
