CPC Tropical Weather MJO EEOF Phase Diagram

Welcome To Paul Roundy's Home Page


I am an associate professor of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at the University at Albany, with interests in climatology and meteorology, oceanography, geology, astronomy, art, mountain climbing, cooking, gardening, history, languages, and agriculture.


My main research focus is analysis of observations of waves in the tropical atmosphere and ocean, and the impacts of these waves on global weather and climate. Examples of my most important research questions include:

How do wave and climate modes interact to control the variability of moist
deep convection in the tropics?

How do these waves interact to enhance or suppress the development of
tropical cyclones?

How do tropical intraseasonal oscillations, atmospheric waves, and related westerly wind bursts interact to influence the development and demise of
El Nino conditions in the tropical Pacific Ocean?
