Coastal Urban Environmental Research Group

The Coastal Urban Environmental Research Group (CUERG) conducts climate research studies on complex coastal urban areas including but not limited to; the states of California, New York, the islands of Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic. The research includes observational and modeling studies of coastal physical phenomenon and their practical impacts on climate modification. The research group uses the Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (RAMS) developed by scientists from Colorado State University and the Weather Research and Forecasting model (WRF) developed by NCAR as main modeling tools. The group has research collaborators from The City College of New York, Santa Clara University, San Jose State University, NASA Ames, NASA Marshall Space Center, and Laurence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). It also has a good number of Ph.Ds, masters, and undergraduate students from all academic institutions. 

Interests

  • Urbanized Weather Research and Forecasting
  • Understanding the Effects of Aerosols On Cloud Microphysics in Coastal Urban Environments
  • Understanding Impacts of Land Cover/Land Use Changes in Coastal Tropical Regions under a Changing Environment
  • Coastal Cooling
