General Lab Information

Earth’s climate system involves multiple physical processes acting over a wide range of scales ranging from microphysics at the level of individual cloud droplets to cloud systems at regional and global scales. The Climate and Process Modeling group aims to address the multi-scale system by using multi-scale process modeling and observational analyses to understand the processes essential to clouds, precipitation, land-atmosphere interactions, and urban impacts; by developing parameterizations of these processes for large scale models; and by evaluating the impacts of these processes with regional and global climate models.
