· Research interests
My research interests are in
the dynamics of the large-scale circulation of the atmosphere and its
variability on time scales from days to centuries. Specific research interests include
greenhouse climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion and interannual
climate variations associated with El Niņo-Southern Oscillation. I was Co-coordinating Lead Author of the
chapter "Detection of Climate Change and Attribution of Causes" in
the international scientific assessment of climate change prepared by the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published in 2001. In 2002, I was lead author of a short report
I have developed a keen interest in the
cross-disciplinary aspects of global change research and earth system science,
as well as the applications of my research in policy areas. I have given a
number of presentations on climate change and global warming to government and
industry groups, as well as to community groups. I have been involved in recent
research publications on the public health impacts in
I joined the
1993 - Meisinger Award from the American Meteorological Society, with citation "for contributions to the understanding of the role of Rossby wave propagation in atmospheric teleconnections and to greenhouse climate change research".
1998 - Norbert Gerbier-Mumm International Award from the World Meteorological Organization for a joint research paper with ten international collaborators.
1999 - elected a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society for outstanding contributions to the atmospheric sciences over a substantial period of years.
