SMART Talks: The Meteorology of Renewable Energy 2
Professor Ronald Smith leads Yale’s program in mesoscale meteorology and regional climate. This program includes 1) atmospheric dynamics emphasizing density-stratified fluid dynamics and applied mathematics, 2) observations of the atmosphere using aircraft and satellite, 3) hydrometeorology using stable isotopes of water and theories of evaporation and rain, 4) satellite remote sensing of landscape changes and climate sensitivity. Professor Smith’s current projects include orographic precipitation in the tropics, gravity waves in the stratosphere, satellite analysis of surface climate feedbacks, stable isotope gradients across mountain ranges, mathematical models of dispersion.
About SMART Talks on Climate Change:
SMART Talks on Climate Change is a program jointly launched by Caixin Global and Yale Center Beijing in 2022. It aims to provide the leaders of the next generation with opportunities for cross-border, cross-discipline and cross-generation dialogue with top scholars and leading experts on the issue of climate change.
