Research

Dr. Galarneau has broad research interests in multiscale aspects of planetary-scale, synoptic-scale, and mesoscale meteorology. He has particular interest in tropical cyclone formation environments, mesoscale convective system-driven heavy rains and extreme winds, extratropical cyclone life cycles, and dynamics and predictability of extreme weather events. He is also interested in analyzing and evaluating numerical weather prediction models.
