Climate Dynamics

Understanding the complexities of the global climate system and predicting future changes to the system requires a detailed understanding of and access to large-spatial data sets collected over decades, and a robust analytical and numerical modeling capability that can accurately detail the interplay between the world’s oceans, atmosphere, polar regions, ecosystems, and land masses.  SOEST researchers and students advance the global understanding of climate dynamics through sustained and detailed data collection, analysis, and modeling of climate systems, projecting climate signals and impacts from the global to the local scale.
