Mid latitude cyclone variability and long term changes

Energy and Moisture Transport, Cyclone variability

EarthPuzzleMid latitude climate variability is strongly connected to variability in the stormtracks. My work includes analysing different aspects of low pressure systems and how the may change with climate change.

Variability and changes in the hydrological cycle

Precipitation, snow and ice, hydrology

EarthPuzzleChanges in the hydrological cycle, including precipitation, snow and ice changes may have pronounced impact on society. My work focus on understanding the changes in the hydrological cyle related to changes in synoptic and mesoscale atmospheric circulation.

Climate in Norway

Precipitation, snow, low pressure systems

EarthPuzzleVariations in the Norwegian climate is strongly linked to cyclone variability which govern the variations in heat and moisture into the country. To understand variations and changes in precipitation and extreme events related to precipitation one has to understand the extratropical cyclone behaviour.
