We bridge the gap between climate science, oceanography and statistics to quantify and understand variability and change.

Recent advances in climate and ocean monitoring, observational platforms, measurement techniques, and Earth System models contribute to a rapid increase in quality and quantity of available data. Our efforts are based on a range of interdisciplinary approaches that implement statistical techniques to make best use of observations and outputs from model simulations. The ultimate goal of our work is to reduce some of the greatest uncertainties about ocean and climate variability and change.

We are located in the Ocean Sciences Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz, in the #2 happiest city in the United States.
