Welcome to Yi Deng's Climate Research Group

The primary interest of our group is climate variability on timescales ranging from a few weeks to several decades. Employing a suite of diagnostic and modeling tools, we seek to understand the origin, dynamical interactions, and regional water, energy an hazard implications of major modes of variability in the Earth's climate system, with a special goal to elucidate the role played by extratropical, sub-monthly-scale atmospheric disturbances. 

A non-exhaustive list of current research topics in our group:

-) regional hydroclimate variability with an emphasis on water extremes
-) aerosol-circulation interaction
-) feedback processes in natural modes of variability and forced climate change
-) causal discovery and probabilistic graphical models in climate analysis
-) polar-extrapolar interaction
-) surface heat flux parameterization and surface energy balance
