Global warming poses a significant challenge to our society by changing weather patterns and intensity. Students in this project will investigate how extreme weather (precipitation, heat wave, blocking, etc.) responds to global warming by examining simulation data from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6). At advanced levels, students may also be expected to conduct numerical simulations themselves to develop insights into some physical processes.
Applicants will work on the analysis, visualization, and presentation of climate simulation data. It is preferred that the applicants have a basic level understanding of MATLAB, Python, or other data processing tools.
1. Be able to explain climate simulation scenarios and concepts.
2. Become proficient in analyzing climate data with programming tools.
3. Contribute new insights on the future of extreme weather under climate change.
