Sanjiv Kumar

Sanjiv Kumar is a NRC Research Associate at NOAA Earth Systems Research Laboratory Physical Science Division, Boulder Colorado. He conducts climate modeling experiments to better understand the roles of land processes and their coupled atmospheric interactions in improving soil moisture predictability at inter-seasonal to decadal time scales. He also employs observations and re-analysis data in his research. His current research also includes clarifying the role of internal climate variability in regional hydroclimatic variability and change by employing advanced statistical techniques and large ensemble climate simulations. Sanjiv earned his PhD in hydroclimatology from the School of Civil Engineering at Purdue University in 2011. He completed his postdoctoral training at the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies in Virginia and the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Colorado from 2011 to 2014. He was a Research Associate at the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium at the University of Victoria, Canada, prior to joining NOAA ESRL in August 2015. See publications on his Google Scholar profile
