Global to Regional Climate Change:

Much of our research has involved analyzing global-to-regional numerical model systems in order to study regional climate variability and its societal impacts. Research in this area has led to the development of new methods for identifying non-linear evolutions in regional climate-change parameters such as water availability, ecosystem health, and extreme event occurrences, which in turn have important consequences for local and regional planning activities. We have also developed a stochastic modeling framework to better understand the impacts of a 2 ░C increase in global mean temperatures upon local occurrences of hot extremes. In addition, as part of a 40-person research consortium, we are helping to diagnose statistically and numerically down-scaled projections of future climate change and its impacts upon socio-economic sectors in New England. Additional research has focused on evaluating, quantifying and diagnosing regional climate change impacts upon vegetation.
