I am working with my group on theoretical approaches to understand atmospheric water vapour and cloud distributions, and more generally on the interplay between dynamics and radiatively active trace constituents of the atmosphere. We also work on Kelvin waves in the tropical atmosphere, cloud microphysical problems, and are interested in far more than what we can pursue actively ...
Tra Dinh, PhD. Tra is working on clouds in the Tropical Tropopause Layer, with a focus on the dynamical conditions leading to clouds, and, conversely, the impact of cloud radiative heating perturbations on dynamics.
Thomas Flannaghan, PhD. Tom is working on Kelvin waves in the tropical atmosphere, and just about anything else we study in our group.
Martin Jucker, PhD. Martin is working with Geoff Vallis and myself on the structure and dynamics of the stratosphere using GFDL's dynamical core. He is also an expert in computer animations, as you can see on his homepage.
Claire Radley, PhD student. Claire is working on the global radiative balance, with a focus on the role of clouds and the question how local model biases may affect the models' response to perturbations.
