Hovedinteressen i min forskningsaktivitet ligger innenfor klimadynamikk og dynamisk meteorologi. De arbeidene jeg har vært innvolvert i har vært mest knyttet til simuleringer med numeriske modeller av atmosfæren. De fleste av disse simuleringene er såkalte sensitivitetseksperimenter hvor vi benytter modeller til å studere betydningen enkeltprosesser eller egenskaper ved underlaget har på klimaet.

Forskningstema som jeg har arbeidet med:

  • Parametrisering av skyprosesser i numeriske modeller
  • Mesoskala atmosfæredynamikk
  • Klimamodellering og klimaanalyse
  • Storskala vekselvirkning mellom hav og atmosfære
  • Storskala variabilitet og stormbane

 

Fra 1998 og fram til i dag har jeg undervis i følgende kurs ved Geofysisk Institutt:

 

GFF001 - Innføringskurs i meteorologi og oseanografi

GEOF212 - Fysisk klimatologi 

GEOF310 - Turbulens i the atmosfærens- og havets grenselag

GEOF110 - Innføring i dynamikken til atmosfæren og havet

GEOF326 - Atmosfærens dynamikk

GEOF329 - Lokalmeteorologi

GEOF327 - Atmosfæren sin generelle sirkulasjon
