Research

 

TIME AND CLIMATE ANALYSIS AND FORECASTING:

Evaluation of the instantaneous state of the atmosphere as input data for mathematical models of the atmosphere, in order to predict the weath.

OCEAN-ATMOSPHERE INTERACTION:

In this line of research, multidisciplinary investigations of several complementary and applied areas are developed, such as applications of climatology, physical oceanography and hydrology. The topics covered seek the understanding of the climate patterns, ocean dynamics with the atmosphere, in diverse environments and ecosystems. There is an emphasis on aspects of understanding physical mechanisms, predictability and impact of climatic variability and synoptic events.

MICROMETEOROLOGY AND AGRONETEOROLOGY:

In this line of research, studies of the meteorological phenomena of micro and mesoscale are carried out, as well as the investigation of observational processes of turbulent exchange in the atmosphere and in the ocean that affect the atmospheric planetary boundary layer. Agrometeorology seeks to provide useful information to field professionals and farmers in general to maximize agroforestry productivity and reduce weather and climate losses. Agrometeorology studies the interaction of meteorological phenomena and their impacts on the productive chain of the agricultural system. Agrometeorological information enables the farmer to rationalize the use of water and energy, making agriculture an environmentally correct, sustainable and increasingly profitable activity.

REMOTE SENSING AND HYDROMETEOROLOGY:

Meteorological, Hydrometeorological and Radar Satellite: Study, observation and interpretation of meteorological and hydrological phenomena occurring on the surface of the earth at a global and regional scale, through data obtained through satellites, fixed stations and radar.
