Biography: Geoffrey Vallis is a professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Exeter and the author of Essentials of Atmospheric and Oceanic Dynamics, recently published by Cambridge University Press (CUP). His research interests are in climate dynamics and planetary atmospheres, and his work varies between basic research in geophysical fluid dynamics and more applied modeling of various aspects of the oceans, atmospheres, or climate, although distinguishing between these subfields can sometimes be quite arbitrary. A common feature of his work is trying to use basic theory in conjunction with more complete numerical models to come to a more well-rounded understanding of phenomena than can be achieved with a single approach. He focuses on:

  • Atmospheric and oceanic fluid dynamics, including,
  • General circulation of the ocean and atmosphere
  • Circulation of planetary atmospheres
  • Turbulence theory, especially geostrophic turbulence
  • Climate dynamics

The American Meteorological Society's NYC/Long Island Seminar Series, sponsored by Columbia University's Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, presents seminars one to two times per year. For more information, contact Prof. Lorenzo Polvani or Prof. Michael Previdi.
