CLASP is very pleased to welcome Prof. Anantha Aiyyer of NC State University.
Prof. Aiyyer will give a presentation titled:
"New Perspectives in the Dynamics of African Easterly Waves"
Abstract: African Easterly waves are the main synoptic scale disturbances of the North African monsoon. They are also the primary precursors to tropical cyclones in the Atlantic. Many aspects of their origin, evolution and storm track structure are still poorly understood. In this talk, I will provide an overview of the basic properties of these disturbances and present some recent results from our group pertaining to their instability and coupling to precipitating convection.
