Summary of Research
Tropical cyclones (TCs) are powerful phenomena that pose significant risks to public health and infrastructure. Projections of TC activity are crucial to understand their future impacts and associated risk mitigation and prevention strategies. These projections are made using global climate models (GCMs). As climate changes, GCMs show that tropical cyclone activity will increase, although there is large uncertainty in these projections.
My research aims to decompose TCs into their component physical processes and evaluate GCM performance in representing these processes in past climates. The goal of this research is to identify potential improvements in GCM representation of component processes to minimize uncertainty and increase confidence in TC activity projections.
