James Done, National Center for Atmospheric Research
Dr. James Done is a Project Scientist at National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) primarily working on the manner in which atmospheric circulation changes can effect tropical cyclone activity. He has been a key participant in the development of the Advanced Research Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model model for regional climate simulations and the establishment of the NCAR Nested Regional Climate Model for future regional climate projections. His past research has explored the importance of domain size and internal model variability for regional climate simulation with focus on water resources over the Western and Central US. As a Willis Research Fellow with the Willis Research Network, funded by Willis Re a large global re-insurance broker, and in collaboration between the scientific and commercial sectors, James is engaged in an active research program on future changes in tropical cyclone activity and landfalling hurricanes.
