Dr Daniel Argüeso Barriga

Dr Daniel Argüeso Barriga
Chapter 6 ( Beatriz Galindo Researcher )


Brief CV

Dr Argüeso is an expert in atmospheric processes at local and regional scales. In particular, he makes use of observations and next-generation convection-permitting ocean-atmosphere coupled climate models, to investigate physical mechanisms governing climate extremes, the effects of urban development on future local climate, the climate aspects of wind energy, the interplay between sea-breeze, tropical convection and intense preciptiation.
