Dr. Seth's research group focuses on the physical climate system, in particular, how regional climates are likely to evolve in the larger setting of human initiated global warming. We work with large global and regional observational datasets and numerical climate models to understand regional processes involved in monsoon regions and mid-latitude climates.
