Tyler Hanke is a graduate student studying atmospheric science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is being advised by Dr. Cristian Proistosescu, and is interested in the large-scale interactions between the atmosphere and the ocean. Climate science has an understanding of the link between regional sea surface temperature (SST) patterns and the formation of low clouds, which impact the Earth's energy budget by bouncing incident solar radiation back into outer space, providing a cooling feedback on the Earth's climate system.
However, while climate science has investigated the impact that SSTs have on cloud radiative feedbacks, not much is known about the impact that these cloud radiative feedbacks have on setting regional SST patterns. Tyler Hanke's research hopes to describe this relationship.
