Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
My name is Ángel F. Adames Corraliza. I'm currently a graduate student in atmospheric sciences at the University of Washington in Seattle. . My research interests range from tropical meteorology, air-sea interactions, boundary layer dynamics, and atmospheric waves. Currently a NSF graduate fellow in Geosciences. I graduated from UPR-Mayaguez with a degree in Physics!
Looking to make contacts and know people from PR that are interested in science, and to be part of this community.
My research focuses on tropical meteorology, with a specialization on the Madden Julian Oscillation (a pulse of convection and wind anomalies with a period of 30-90 days). It has widespread impacts around the globe, ranging from flood events, hurricane modulation to El Niño connections. In the Caribbean zone, it is known to modulate hurricane activity and rainfall.
One of my goals is to understand how this oscillation begins and propagates. I will be in the Indian Ocean next year in a project that seeks to further understand this phenomena.
