Climate Dynamics

My studies of coupled climate dynamics can be drawn in to the following three broad themes:

  1. Aquaplanets: a study of the elemental role of the ocean in setting the mean climate of the planet, both the present climate and past (paleo) climates.
  2. Modes of Climate Variability: interactions of atmospheric modes of variability with ocean circulation.
  3. Anthropogenic Climate Change and the role of the ocean therein.
