Abstract:

The long-term goal of this PI team is to understand the physical processes of the air-sea interaction and coupling of the atmosphere-ocean system in high-wind maritime regimes, with a particular emphasis on hurricanes, and to determine the changes that must be made to the coupled atmosphere-wave-ocean models in order to simulate the coupled boundary layers under extreme wind conditions.
