weather and climate
variability with a team of scientists from WHOI (Young-Oh Kwon and Claude
NCAR (Gokhan Danabasoglu and Steve Yeager).
The project aims to investigate the tropical and mid-latitude (collectively
referred to as lower
latitudes) oceanic and atmospheric drivers of regional Arctic changes as
well as the impact of
Arctic variability on the Northern Hemisphere climate and weather extremes,
based on a
combination of available observations and state-of-the-art climate models.
