Center for Prototype Climate Modeling

CPCM is an interdisciplinary research unit at New York University Abu Dhabi, generously supported by the NYU Abu Dhabi Research Institute.

Our mission is to bridge the gap between climate theory, modeling, and observation, with the goal of better understanding fundamental processes in the earth system, and improving our ability to predict future climate.

Atmospheric conditions over the Middle East

  • Our center encompasses three central research areas:
    • Prediction of Low Frequency Variations of South Asian Monsoon using Nonlinear Models, led by Primary Investigator Andrew Majda
    • Regional climate modeling for the Arabian Peninsula and South Asia, led by Co-Primary Investigator, Olivier Pauluis
    • The biogeochemistry of the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean, led by Co-Primary Investigator, Shafer Smith
