Benjamin Lintner is an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences.His research focuses on tropical climate dynamics, in particular understanding the processes controlling the spatiotemporal distribution of rainfall. On-going projects in Dr. Lintner’s research group include analyzing relationships among large-scale circulation, moisture, and rainfall in the South Pacific across multiple temporal scales; diagnosing the mechanistic pathways through which the land surface and atmosphere interact; isolating controls on atmospheric moisture vertical structure; and developing and applying novel methodologies for analyzing rainfall and other climate variables. Currently, Dr. Lintner serves as the Director of the Rutgers Graduate Program in Atmospheric Sciences as well as a university delegate to the Organization for Tropical Studies, a nonprofit consortium of universities dedicated to strengthening education and research in the study of the tropics.
