BNL Regional Climate

Capabilities & Interests

Atmospheric Sciences Division

  • Impact Models with Observations (ARM, ASP)

    • Process studies

    • Parameterization development

    • Model constraints & validation

  • Regional climate modeling (NY Blue)

    • Modeling  ~ Scales we can observe

    • Assess fidelity of the regional simulation
