Philip Craig

PhD Year 4


Research Interests:

  • Large-scale atmospheric circulation
  • Global hydrological cycle: precipitation and evaporation patterns, atmospheric moisture transport
  • Ocean freshwater budgets: evaporation, precipitation and runoff
  • Global salinity patterns
  • Atlantic/Pacific asymmetries: moisture budget, salinity, meridional overturning circulation

Research Project:

  • The role of atmospheric moisture transport in the salinity of the Atlantic Ocean.: I am using an air mass trajectory model to partition the atmospheric moisture transports between ocean drainage basins to determine if fluxes from any particular regions are dominant in setting the asymmetry in sea surface salinity between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
