Research Topics

  • large-scale atmospheric dynamics and climate
  • eddy-mean flow dynamics (e.g. annular-modes, wave propagation)
  • the use of simplified models to understand the general circulation
  • air quality and its ties to the large-scale circulation
  • effects of climate change on tropospheric and stratosphere-troposphere transport

Welcome to the homepage of the Barnes Research Group! Our research covers atmospheric dynamics and variability under different climates. See above for a list of our general interests, and check-out the "RESEARCH" tab for detailed summaries of our past and current work.
