Dr. T.N. Krishnamurti, Ph.D. University of Chicago, 1959
Professor of Meteorology
Tropical Meteorology. Research interests are in the following areas: high resolution hurricane forecast (tracks, landfall, and intensity), monsoon forecasts on short, medium range, and monthly time scale and studies of interseasonal and interannual variability of the tropical atmosphere. As a participant in the meteorology team in tropical field projects, he has been responsible for the acquisition and analysis of meteorological data, which extends over most of the tropical atmosphere over several years and is now being assembled and analyzed. These data are unique; it is unlikely that a meteorological data record will be available for decades. Phenomenological interests include hurricanes, monsoons, jet streams, and the meteorology of arid zones.
