Dr. Hyodae Seo

Associate Scientist with Tenure
I am a climate scientist and numerical modeler, with a broad range of research and teaching interests in oceanic and atmospheric processes and their interactions relating to climate.  The overall goal of my research is to better understand the climate processes and their variability and changes at regional to local scales and to deliver useful and usable predictions and projections to adapt to and mitigate climate change impacts. These interests are pursued using numerical model simulations of the ocean and the atmosphere, theory of the geophysical fluid dynamics, and the use of satellite and in situ data and global climate model outputs. For more information, please see the list of my current projectspublications, and CV.
