Alex Hall, UCLA Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
Dr. Hall studies the climate system from both regional and global perspectives. He has experience in analysis of climate simulations, and comparing output from these experiments to in situ and remote sensing data. At the global scale, he studies processes determining the climate system’s response to increases in greenhouse gases. At the regional scale, he has been active in the development and integration of regional climate models. He uses these simulations to examine mesoscale climate dynamics and interactions among earth-system components that are crucial for simulating and understanding regional climate but are largely unrepresented in current global climate models. This research also has applications in the areas of climate impacts, water resources, renewable energy, and conservation. At UCLA, Dr. Hall teaches climate-related courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. He is a recipient of the NSF Graduate Fellowship (1993-1996), the NASA Earth System Science Fellowship (1996-1998), the Lamont Fellowship (1999-2001), and the NSF CAREER award (2002-2007).
