Description of scientific projects
Our group’s research concentrates on regional and global climatic variability on daily to multi-decadal time scales. Analysis focuses on in situ observations of upper-air and surface temperature and humidity, with an emphasis on data quality and continuity issues. Current projects include: development of new global temperature data products from both radiosonde and satellite observations, the vertical structure of tropospheric and stratospheric temperature change, the tropical tropopause and its variability, variability in measures of atmospheric stability.
