Giuseppe Zappa

Research Activity
He is a researcher in climate and atmospheric dynamics, with interests in understanding and reducing the uncertainty in the atmospheric circulation response to greenhouse forcing. An additional goal of his research is understanding the changes, and communicating the impacts, of weather extremes at the regional scale, with a particular focus on the Euro-Atlantic sector and Mediterranean region. Some specific topics he has been working on are: the hydro-climate of Mediterranean-like regions, the response of mid-latitude storm tracks and extratropical cyclones to climate change, the development of storylines of atmospheric circulation change, and the time of emergence and timescales of the climate change response
