Minimize Postdoctoral position - Water Cycle Extremes and Climate

Date added: 22 September 2017

Organisation: NASA

Location: Maryland, U.S.

This research focuses on better understanding the extreme fluctuations of global and regional atmospheric water cycles and their interactions with the Earth's surface using NASA Earth science satellite observations, in-situ measurements, modelling including IPCC CMIP model outputs.

Topics include:

  1. statistical analysis of rainfall extreme characteristics (types, frequency and intensity), and associated changes in clouds, moisture and the large scale circulation,
  2. analysis and modeling of extreme events clusters including flash flood, severe drought, atmospheric rivers, and tropical cyclones, and possible teleconnections among them, and
  3. continental heat wave and prolonged droughts, role of remote forcing vs. local land-atmosphere feedback processes, and
  4. High impact hydroclimate events, including estimation of return interval, attributions, and feedback processes involving large scale environment and climate variability and change.
