Multidisciplinary research is being conducted to understand the atmospheric large-scale waves, monsoon, atmospheric river, tropical cyclone, diurnal cycle, cloud, and precipitation processes to improve weather and seasonal prediction capabilities. The focus is on the coupled air-ocean, air-wave, air-land-hydrology forcing and feedback mechanisms. Opportunities exist to study these multiscale nonlinear interactions using the NRL regional coupled model and in-situ/remotely sensed observations, through the diagnosis and development of coupled parameterizations, and by participating in field programs.
