Professor Schneider's research group studies atmospheric dynamics, both here on Earth and on other planets, on scales from clouds to the globe. To answer fundamental questions about atmospheric dynamics, such as what controls Earth's winds and precipitation patterns, the group analyzes observational data and performs systematic studies with numerical models, simulating flows ranging from the meter-scale motions in clouds to global circulations. Professor Schneider's group also strives to translate scientific discoveries into improved models for weather forecasting and climate prediction.
List of Research Areas
Large-scale atmosphere dynamics of Earth and other planets; dynamics of climate changes; turbulence in atmosphere and oceans; climate modeling.
