Julie Caron - Associate Scientist
Research Interests and Activities
My main research interests are climate dynamics and variability, including MJO, ENSO, diurnal cycle of convection, low-level jets, and global and regional climate model representations of these. In my research, I work with CAM, CCSM, and the NRCM as well as numerous observational datasets.
