Personal profile



Martin's research interests are in atmospheric dynamics and climate change. He is particularly interested in the influence of cloud and precipitation processes on atmospheric circulations of a wide range of spatial scales. Understanding the role of such moist processes in determining the climate is an important step toward predicting the possible impacts of human-induced global warming.

Martin's particular research interests include:

  • Understanding the large-scale tropical overturning circulation
  • Earth's monsoons in the past, present and future
  • Tropical convection in different climates
  • Precipitation extremes under global warming
  • The entropy budget of a convecting atmosphere
