Focus Areas

Earth System Science


Research Interests:
Dr. Sokolov's research interests include atmospheric general circulation modeling, and climate sensitivity and feedback studies. He has extensive experience in the development and modification of the underlying computer codes in general circulation models. He is presently working to generalize a two-dimensional climate model used in an integrated assessment of climate change. His modifications are making the model more suitable for assessing uncertainty and impacts of climate change on ecosystems.
