Brief Bio

Anthony DeAngelis is part of the National Climate Assessment group at NASA's Global Modeling and Assimilation Office. His research interests include climate variability and change, the global hydrological cycle, extreme weather and climate events, and weather and climate prediction. His current research focuses on the U.S. Great Plains low-level jet, physical mechanisms underlying extreme weather/climate events in the Northern Hemisphere, and the subseasonal-to-seasonal prediction of extreme events in global dynamical models.
