The COMAP Group

 

The COMAP group improves the understanding and forecasting of meteorological phenomena in the coastal margins of North America. Many near-shore features, such as coastal fronts, land/sea breeze circulations, orographic flows and precipitation, marine clouds/fog, and convection in a marine environment are challenging to forecast. Using conventional data, field study observations, as well as atmospheric (Weather Research and Forecasting model, Bryan Cloud Model, and MM5) and ocean (ADCIRC and SWAN) models, our research explores many types of coastal flows, precipitation processes, storm surge, and regional climate over the Northeast U.S.
