Ian Lloyd, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences

The focus of Ian’s research is on the interaction between hurricanes and the climate system under global warming, for three major areas.

  • The first area is ocean-atmosphere interaction associated with hurricanes; in particular, the influence of oceanic heat content on hurricane intensity, which could have important consequences for changes in hurricane activity under global warming scenarios.
  • The second is the influence of hurricane-induced feedbacks on the climate system, via both ocean and atmosphere.
  • The final area is large-scale controls on tropical cyclone activity by the climate system under global warming, using newly developed high-resolution models at GFDL.
