Postdoctoral Scientist – Representation of atmosphere-ocean processes in the tropical Atlantic by climate models

Violetter Blitz

Closing date: 15 May 2016
Centre National des Recherches Météorologiques (CNRM), Toulouse, France

The main specific research activities of the climate group of CNRM, GMGEC, concern the development of climate models, the studies of climate variability and change at global and regional scales, of long-range forecasting, of atmospheric chemistry and of ocean-air interactions. Besides, the CNRM climate group has recently developed a new version of its global coupled climate model including a deeply revised set of atmospheric parameterisations. This new model will be used for the CMIP6 exercise.
