North American Monsoon:

Our research has focused upon numerous aspects of the North American monsoon system, including: the seasonal evolution of the large-scale and fine-scale monsoon circulation features; inter-annual to diurnal variations in the corresponding energy, moisture, and momentum fields; and the relation of this variability to tropical, subtropical, and extra-tropical boundary condition forcing. Recently, our research has focused on systematically identifying and analyzing the inherent predictability of inter-annual to multi-decadal changes in seasonal-mean precipitation and extreme events using observed daily rainfall characteristics (i.e. frequency and intensity) in combination with stochastic modeling techniques. In addition these models have been used to discern systematic trends in observed precipitation associated with a large-scale expansion of the summertime North American monsoon system during the last 70 years.
