The purpose of Prof Sobel's research is to understand more deeply the relationship of extreme weather events to the climate in which they occur.
One facet of the research involves detecting predictable global patterns of multiple types of extreme weather events. He also uses a novel method to untangle the interaction of clouds and the large-scale circulation in computer model simulation of heavy precipitation.
In their research, Adam and his team aim both to increase fundamental understanding of atmospheric processes, and to better quantify the societal risks from extreme weather events in a useful way.
