Extreme Events-Tropical Cyclones
Extreme events have a profound impact on society. We are using statistical methods and regional fully coupled ocean-atmosphere- wave models to understand the physical processes of tropical cyclones. Through international partnerships we are studying tropical cyclones in the West Pacific, the South China Sea, East China Sea and the Indian ocean.
