Statement of Purpose
I am pursuing a career with research as my prime goal. During the last few years in research, I have developed a strong commitment to a research oriented academic career in atmospheric science. I found myself thoroughly enjoying keeping in track of the growing wealth of information on the subject. I would like to continue research in Atmospheric Science and feel that I am intellectually quite capable of handling research activity at a professional level. I have developed the necessary traits of percept and organizational ability to work in a group in a co-operative fashion, which I feel is mandatory in the field of any scientific research.
Simulation and Diagnosis of Indian Summer monsoon variability and its impact on the global climate and vice-versa.
Climate model development (Convective parameterization).
Analysis of CMIP data.
Extreme rainfall analyses.
To quantify the scopes and opportunities of the Stochastic Multicloud Model (SMCM; of Khouider and Majda fame) in simulating the variability of organized convection. NCEP CFSv2 model has been adopted as the reference model in order to achieve this. This is the first time SMCM has been implemented in a climate model.
Study of Indian Summer Monsoon Intraseasonal Oscillation in Multiscale Modelling Framework: The primary objective of my PhD research is to study the simulation of Indian summer monsoon intraseasonal oscillation in superparameterized general circulation model and subsequently to quantify the fidelity of this superparameterization technique (of Prof. Marat Khairoutdinov fame) in simulating Indian summer monsoon intraseasonal oscillation. The NCEP CFSv2 model has been taken as the GCM to be superparameterized.
Pre-PhD Research (2006-2008)
Study of precipitation extremes in the North-east Indian region: This study tries to reveal the trend and, for the first time, mechanism of the extreme rainfall events over the north-eastern region of India. I collected and analyzed rainfall data for over 30 stations spread across the north-east India.
Historical simulations of 32 CMIP5 models were analyzed in order to find the systematic bias in the simulated mean rainfall among the pool of models. Inability to adequately simulate the synoptic variability found to be common to majority of the models; especially for the ones with coarser grid resolution.
