Dr Jatin Kala
Former Post Doctoral Research Fellow
Field of Research: 
Land Surface Processes
Contact details:

Jatin’s work focuses on improving our understanding of land-atmosphere interactions by using state-of-the-art land surface models coupled to atmospheric models. He is also interested in model development and improving parameterisation schemes to better represent land surface processes within models. He is particularly interested in the representation of vegetation within coupled  climate models, and how this influences land-atmosphere feedbacks. Prior to joining the CCRC, Jatin completed his PhD at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia, and investigated the impacts of land-cover change on meteorological phenomena in southwest Western Australia using both observational data-sets and a non-hydrostatic mesoscale regional atmospheric model. Jatin is also interested in regional climate modelling and impact assessment studies for agriculture and forestry.
