Who we are

We are a research group in the department of Climate and Space Science and Engineering (CLaSP) at the University of Michigan. Our goal is to further our understanding of the physical processes that drive large-scale circulations through the analysis of observations and model simulations, and through the development of theory.

Our group collaborates with scientists from around the globe and we have published our results in reputable peer-reviewed journals. We also have ongoing efforts to communicate science to the public.

Our group is composed of undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs and is led by professor Ángel Francisco Adames-Corraliza.


About CLaSP

“The Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering combines scientific and technological excellence and leadership to explore the Sun, the Earth, our solar system, and the space beyond. We use observations, modeling, and theory to discover and explain phenomena that define our place in the universe, and address the pressing problems associated with global change.”
