Thesis Title

The three-dimensional distribution of clouds around Southern Hemisphere extratropical cyclones and its representation in a climate model.

Biography

Pallavi's research involves construction of the three-dimensional structure of clouds associated with Southern Hemisphere extratropical cyclones using modern satellite observations.  The methodology used in this study reveals the relationship between dynamical and cloud processes in three dimensions around cyclones and provides the foundation for in depth evaluations of the ability of climate models to simulate the cloud and dynamical structures of Southern Hemisphere extratropical cyclones.
