Goal:

to better anticipate the evolution of Earth's climate by increasing our confidence in the results obtained through climate modelling. It is thus essential to improve:

  • the physical content of climate models
  • the physicla understanding of large-scale climate dynamics

 

Henceforth,  two major work axes for the group for the next few years:

  1. Developing further the LMDZ model and contributing to general improvment of the IPSL-ESM model:
    1. improving the representation of convective and cloud processes
    2. use it from regional to global scales
    3. reduce biases of the coupled model
  2. Using a "hierarchy" of models and approaches to:
    1. understand the couplings between diabatic processes and atmospheric circulation
    2. identifier
    3. comprendre
