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)

July 2013 - June 2017
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.
