I am interested in the circulation changes in the lower stratosphere and upper troposphere region in response to changes of greenhouse gases and ozone. With help of different observational data and GFDL model simulations, I am trying to separate the effect of different forcing agents and to understand the circulation changes on the process level.
I am also interested in understanding the general circulation especially in the context of climate change.
