Gildas Dayon

Hydroclimate Scientist
Telephone: 
250-472-4484

Gildas is a hydroclimate scientist at the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium, which he joined in early 2017. His research interests include internal and forced climate variability and how these impact the hydrological cycle. Gildas also worked on statistical downscaling methods and on the assessment of their transferability in the future climate.

His work at the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium focuses on the impacts of internal climate variability on the hydrological cycle of British Columbia and streamflow temperature modeling.
