About Us

Our research group is an enthusiastic group of scientists interested in scale interaction in our atmosphere. We are interested in meso to planetary spacial scales as well as synoptic to subseasonal time scales of the upper troposphere-lower stratosphere region.

We are part of the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at the University at Albany, State University of New York. Our address is:

1400 Washington Ave, ES 351
Albany, New York, 12222
