paleoclimate reconstructions and modeling, dynamical responses of climate to forcing Hurricane/Tropical Cyclone relationships
Description of scientific projects
Current areas of research include reconstruction of past climate using climate paleoclimate ``proxy'' data, and model/data comparisons aimed at understanding the long-term behavior of the climate system and its relationship with possible external (including anthropogenic) "forcings'' of climate. Other areas of active research include simulation of climate using theoretical models, development of statistical methods for climate signal detection, and investigations of the response of geophysical and ecological systems to climate variability and climate change scenarios.
