In My Own Words
Peter Waylen is a physical geographer specializing in hydrology,
particularly the analysis of spatial variations in the statistics
describing interannual and interseasonal variability of
hydrometeorological variables. He has published papers on flood and
drought frequency, thunder and hail occurrences, cold spells and
freezes, and annual and seasonal precipitation totals, in Geographic
(e.g. Canadian Geographer, Professional Geographer, Transactions
I.B.G.) and related disciplinary journals, in both hydrology (e.g.
Water Resources Research, J. of Hydrology) and climatology (e.g. Int.
J. of Climatology, J. of Climate, J. of Climate and Applied
Meteorology). The research involves a combination of climatology,
hydrology and the application of statistical theory, the results of
which are applied over regions of interest. Recent research funded
by NSF, NOAA and the Inter-American Institute investigated the
influence of El Niņo - Southern Oscillation and other macro-climatic
indicators on precipitation and stream flow in Central and South
America, and Thailand/Cambodia.
Dr. Waylen is also a member of,
the consortium of faculty at Florida universities interested in the
effects of El Niņo, the University of Florida's Center for Latin
American Studies, the Land Use Environmental Change Institute, the
Inter-disciplinary Program in Hydrosciences and the School of Natural
Environment. He is a Professional Hydrologist, certified by the
American Institute of Hydrology.
