Current Work


Chunzai Wang is working on the roles of ocean-atmosphere interaction in global and regional climate processes, impacts of climate variability and climate changes on extreme weather events, and ocean and atmosphere circulation. He performs dynamically oriented analysis of large-scale ocean and atmosphere data fields, together with numerical modeling experiments using oceanic and atmospheric general circulation models as well as theoretical study.

His current research activities include (1) investigating the variability, mechanisms, and impacts of Atlantic climate and ocean phenomena such as the Atlantic warm pool and the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation; (2) studying climate and ocean variability and their impacts in the Pacific and Indian Oceans; and (3) examining the impacts of climate variability and climate changes on extreme events such as tropical cyclones and tornado activity in the United States.
