Research Interests

Development of climate record of global air-sea momentum, heat, and moisture fluxes using satellite observations from multi-sensors and multi-platforms. Use of remote sensing of salinity to understand the global water cycle variability. Use of air-sea flux datasets to assess the surface energy imbalance and climate impacts. Analysis of the multiscale variability and dynamics of El Niño – Southern Ocean. Analysis of ocean-atmosphere interaction at both short (synoptic to interannual) and long (decadal to climate trend) temporal scales and form meso to basin scales.
