Christopher Castro

Christopher Castro’s research interests include climate variability and change, the North American monsoon, regional atmospheric modeling, and land-atmosphere interactions.  Current research within his group at the University of Arizona focuses principally on physical understanding and prediction of climate in North America through regional atmospheric modeling and analysis of observations.  His main research emphasis is the North American Monsoon.  As the Chair of the Geophysics Commission of the U.S. National Section of the Pan American Institute for Geography and History, Dr. Castro also helps facilitate joint research in this area between investigators in the United States and throughout Latin America.
