Clouds, Climate, and Precipitation

The Stachnik Research Group

The Clouds, Climate, and Precipitation Group studies the dynamics and impacts of clouds and precipitating systems ranging from local to regional and global scales. In particular, our research group focuses on tropical meteorology, climate variability and change, cloud physics and dynamics, mesoscale precipitating systems, multi-scale interactions, with a budding interest in weather, climate, and society. To achieve these goals, we rely on radar and satellite meteorology in addition to investigating large-scale numerical products including reanalyses and global climate models (GCMs).
