office: 620, ATG Building
favorite interdisciplinary program: UW's Program on Climate Change
Research interest: Physical consequences of global change. Greenhouse gas changes are spatially uniform, yet the temperature changes they induce create rectified, structured changes in various non-temperature variables (circulation, precipitation, clouds, ...) as well as changes in dimensionless quantities like relative humidity and soil moisture. Why?
