Changes in NH cyclones

PI: Kris Wile
Institution: University of Wisconson-Madison
My thesis research is focused upon determining how "intense" NH extratropical cyclones will evolve in a greenhouse warming scenario. It is pretty well understood with a global warming scenario that there will be a reduced pole to equator temperature gradient thus reducing the mean barolcinity. Less understood is some modeling studies showing an increase in "intense" cyclones in the NH. My project is to more thoroughly look at how the intense cyclone structure changes in a global warming scenario compared to modern cases. For this study I therefore will need to use the daily temporal resolution datasets from the CAM3 model both for a modern control case and the 1% annually increasing CO2 until doubling scenarios.
