Young-Oh Kwon


Fellow Term: May '09 - April '12

Young-Oh Kwon is an Assistant Scientist in the Physical Oceanography Department. His research primarily revolves around one question, ‘what is the role of the ocean in climate?’  More specifically, his research focuses on the variability in the ocean and atmosphere, and the interaction between the two in the extra-tropics with time scales of a few years to several decades.  As an OCCI fellow, he will examine the global climate model simulations and compare them with the observational data, to understand the role of ocean-atmosphere coupling in the decadal climate variability primarily in the North Atlantic and North Pacific.
