Shih-Yu (Simon) Wang - Research
Simon is conducting research in the following areas:
Employing observational data sets for tree ring and other surrogate estimates for precipitation in the Intermountain region to analyze the distinct wet/dry climate cycles. Cooperating in current efforts to use various time statistical and dynamical analyses to quantify the magnitude and frequencies of drought and wet episodes.
Identifying large scale atmospheric and oceanic features at appropriate spatial and temporal scales that connect with the cyclical variations in wet and dry periods. Employing a synoptic climatology approach to identify connections between the characteristics of these features with low and high frequency variations in climate.
Connecting land-atmosphere interactions, mesoscale atmospheric models and regional climate in several ecosystems.
