Numerical Model Simulations of Global Climate and Lake Superior
These researchers have two main lines of research, one global and the other regional. The regional focus is on Lake Superior. The group utilizes a regional ocean modeling architecture called ROMS (Regional Ocean Model System), which they have configured to understand lake dynamics and to characterize transport of lake constituents and its ecosystem, both in the historical past and projected future. In global studies, the researchers use an earth system model of intermediate complexity developed at the University of Minnesota, called MESMO. One of the goals of this line of research is to understand the partitioning of carbon among the carbon reservoirs using paleo-, present, and future-climate scenerios.
