Rune Grand Graversen


Professor / Group Leader Complex Systems Modeling

Job description

Professor in Polar Meteorology and Climate Dynamics 

Research interests include: 

  • Arctic warming, governing mechanisms and processes related to ocean, atmosphere and ice. 
  • Energy transport in the atmosphere, how atmospheric waves accomplish this transport, and how the transport affects weather and climate.
  • Polar lows, governing processes, and methods to improve predictions of polar lows.
  • Climate sensitivity, how processes related to ocean, atmospheric and cryosphere impact the magnitude of global and regional warming induced by increase of atmospheric CO2.
  • Extreme weather events, how these events change due to global warming, and how the atmospheric circulation impact that change.
  • Sea-ice predictions, improvements of predictions of sea ice due to assimilation of various types of satellite-based observations.
