Atmospheric Dynamics, Numerical Weather Prediction

Research Interests

    I am interested in the geophysical fluid dynamics of circulations in the atmosphere and ocean.  Recent publications have treated fluid instabilities at large scales in middle latitude and at much smaller scales in the outflow layer of hurricanes.  I have developed a dynamical system to investigate slowly evolving tropical circulations and applied it to the zonally symmetric Hadley circulation.  I am interested in tropical waves as well as ocean/air interactions.  I have also begun a set of investigations into the atmospheric around the Hawaiian islands.  The weather and climate of the Hawaiian islands are being studied with a complex three-dimensional model which includes detailed physical processes.
