  1. EAS Faculty & Research Interest • Dr. Michael Bergin • Formation, transport, and deposition of Aerosols, Human health effects , Characterization of exposure in micro-environments • Dr. Robert Black • Dynamical diagnoses of large-scale phenomena, weather regimes, extreme temperature regimes, storm tracks and stratosphere-troposphere coupling. • Dr. Annalisa Bracco • Climate variability and role of the oceans at interannualto decadal scales, uncertainties and parameter optimization in climate models. • Dr. Kim Cobb • Tropical Pacific climate variability on decadal to millennial timescales; Paleoclimate reconstruction and modeling; Water isotopes; Energy and climate policy • Dr. Judith A. Curry • Remote sensing, Climate of the polar regions, Atmospheric modeling, and Air/sea interactions. • Dr. Yi Deng • Storm track and extra tropical energy and water cycle, atmospheric low-frequency variability, and weather and climate extremes. • Dr. Jean Lynch-Stieglitz • Reconstruction of past ocean circulation, and the tropical ocean/climate system; Focus on last 100,000 years on millennial to multi-millennial time scales • Dr. AthanasiosNenes • Modeling of aerosol-cloud-climate interactions on global scales, Parameterization of cloud microphysical processes. Thermodynamic modeling of tropospheric aerosols, Instrumentation and techniques for hygroscopicity and CCN activity • Dr. Irina Sokolik • The physical, chemical, and optical properties of atmospheric aerosols and their radiative impacts, combining modeling and measurements in order to study the aerosol characteristics needed for climate change, remote sensing, atmospheric chemistry, and air pollution applications. • Dr. Peter Webster • Low frequency atmospheric and ocean dynamics, ocean-atmosphere interactions, monsoon predictability. • EAS Research Areas • Atmospheric Chemistry, Aerosols & Clouds • Paleoclimate • Planetary Science • Geochemistry • Dynamics of Weather and Climate • Geophysics • Oceanography and Climate • Remote Sensing Overview Research in atmospheric dynamics ranges from studies of squall lines and gravity waves to cyclogenesis, weather regimes, hurricanes, remote sensing applications, and climate dynamics. Studies of climate and factors that affect climate change seek to link the existing interactions between the land, oceans and atmosphere. This information is used to improve the representation of these processes in global climate models. The ultimate goal of this research is to optimize the accuracy of global climate models that are used to study climate dynamics, climate change, and the global scale transport of pollutants. A variety of observational, theoretical, and modeling strategies are used to explore the dynamics of weather and climate, towards improved understanding and predictions. Paleoclimate research at Georgia Tech is focused on reconstructing and understanding abrupt climate change and the long term behavior of the tropical ocean-climate system.
