Nan Rosenbloom, Associate Scientist

Research Interests

I am an associate scientist in the Climate Change and Prediction group, which is part of the Climate Change Research section within the Climate and Global Dynamics Laboratory. In this role I provide scientific and technical support for multiple projects within the section. One of my primary technical roles is to implement and support scientific model simulations using the CESM model. These runs are conducted on multiple High Performance Compute platforms including the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), as well as NCAR’s NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC).

Recent projects include orchestrating and conducting ensembles of high resolution CESM experiments. Analysis of these high resolution simulation focuses on the effect of climate change on the frequency, duration and distribution of mid-latitude storm tracks and tropical cyclones. Another project looks at the effects of regionally forced ocean temperatures on climate variability and decadal predictability.
