Daehyun Kim

Assistant Professor

Daehyun Kim is an atmospheric scientist who studies clouds, moisture, circulation, and the interaction between them in the tropics. Using climate models, software to simulate and predict weather and climate, along with satellite and other observations, he has focused primarily on the Madden-Julian oscillation and the El-Niño southern oscillation phenomena. These two phenomena are the primary sources of global predictability for weather and climate on seasonal and annual time scales. In recognition of his scientific research accomplishments as a young scientist, he received the American Geophysics Union James R. Holton Junior scientist award in 2012.
