Research Focus

Ocean-atmosphere interaction plays a crucial role in climate variability on a broad range of time scales. The coupling between atmosphere and ocean is essential for analyzing complex phenomena. The coupled solutions exhibit a strong sensitivity to perturbations in the initial conditions, coupling frequency and to air-sea fluxes. A mathematically consistent algorithm  leads to reduced stochasticity; less sensitivity of coupled solution to perturbations in the initial conditions and coupling frequency.

My research focuses on adaptation of schwarz decomposition methods to ocean atmosphere coupling to obtain a stable and consistent coupling method. The idea of schwarz decomposition method is to separate the original problem on a domain into sub-domain (sub-problems) which cann be solved separately. An iterative process is then applied to achieve convergence to the solution of original problem.
