Intraseasonal Variability and Tropical Cyclones in the NASA GISS General Circulation Model

Lead PI: Prof. Adam Sobel

Unit Affiliation: Ocean and Climate Physics, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

June 2009 - June 2014
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The project will analyze the performance of the GISS model with respect to its simulations of inraseasonal variability and tropical cyclone-like vortices, and improve these simulations by diagnosing the mechanisms responsible of the development and maintenance of both elements of the model.

OUTCOMES: Carried out a 20-day hindcast experiment with is being analyzed. The model worked well until lead day 10.
