Daniel B Whitt

Project Scientist
National Center for Atmospheric Research

I am an Earth system scientist. I develop mathematical and computational tools in order to discover, understand, and predict Earth system processes.

My Research Interests

Geophysical fluid dynamics

Geophysical fluid dynamics plays an integral role in many Earth system processes on a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. I develop and use mathematical and computational tools to build understanding of geophysical fluid dynamics.

Marine physical/biogeochemical interaction

Every year, marine phytoplankton convert 50 billion tons of carbon into organic form via photosynthesis, which refuels the trophic base of marine ecosystems. I develop and use mathematical and computational tools to build understanding of coupled physical/biogeochemical dynamics.

Societal Dimensions

Earth system dynamics and human society are coupled. I develop and use computational tools to build understanding of coupled societal/Earth system dynamics.
