The objectives of our research are to improve understanding and
prediction of high-impact weather events. We utilize
observations, theory, and numerical models in attaining these goals.|
In recent years, we have studied extratropical and tropical cyclones, organized convection, winter storms, heavy precipitation events, and topographically forced flows. We seek to improve short-term prediction of these phenomena through enhanced understanding of the physical mechanisms responsible for their evolution, and optimization of process representation in numerical models. The question of how longer-term climate change might affect the frequency and severity of high-impact events is another topic of our ongoing investigations.
