Research Activity

Planetary Scale Dynamics:
  • Fundamental properties of the large scale circulation
  • Low frequency variability
  • Atmosphere-ocean coupled models of the general circulation
Atmospheric Predictability:
  • Application of dynamical system theory to low order atmospheric models
  • Development of local predictability measures in phase space
  • Statistical properties of error growth and prediction. Application to ensemble forecasting and data assimilation
Mesoscale Dynamics:
  • Orographic effects on atmospheric circulation, orographic cyclogenesis, frontal interaction with topography
  • Role of latent heat release and surface fluxes on baroclinic cyclones
  • Organized convective storms and their interaction with larger scale circulations.
  • Mesoscale Alpine Programme (MAP)
