Welcome to the Climate Dynamics and Variability Group!  We work in research areas at the intersections of climate dynamics and change, weather extremes and impacts, uncertainty, risk and decision making.  We combine observational data sets, climate models spanning a wide range of complexities, and statistical/mathematical methods to address  grand climate challenges.  Some recent and ongoing projects focus on: tropical cyclones, extreme temperature, sea-level rise, El Nino-Southern Oscillation, and geoengineering.  Please see our group’s Publication List for more information about current and past research.
