research overview

  • Dr. Winters's research interests are focused on understanding the dynamics, variability, and predictability of atmospheric flow patterns that are conducive to the development of high-impact weather events at middle latitudes. At the moment, Dr. Winters is investigating the processes that facilitate the merger of the typically separate polar and subtropical jet streams, and how that merger relates to high-impact weather. Additionally, Dr. Winters is exploring the predictability of the North Pacific jet stream, and how certain North Pacific jet regimes relate to weather conditions across North America. The research questions explored by Dr. Winters's research group are investigated employing a combination of long-term reanalysis datasets, operational and idealized model output, and representative case studies.
