Gregory J. Carbone

Professor of Geography, University of South Carolina

Greg Carbone earned a B.A. from Clark University, an M.A. from the University of Kansas, and a Ph.D from the University of Wisconsin. His research includes climate variability and change and climate impacts. He is an investigator with the Carolinas Integrated Sciences and Assessments (CISA) program, a NOAA-sponsored center designed to work with decision makers to improve the use of climate information in resource management. Carbone has won university teaching awards for his instruction of weather and climate courses.

Greg Carbone’s research interests center on climate variability and change and their impacts during the instrumental period. Two areas characterize his most recent work. The first is an investigation of the spatial and temporal nature of drought and measurement of its intensity and duration. He and his colleagues have developed a web-based hydroclimate extremes atlas for the Carolinas. A second focus has involved development and assessment of climate change scenarios and their application for regional decision making. This has included the use of general circulation model and regionally-downscaled output, and has centered on tailoring projections of climate change to decision making.
