Research Interest
Prof. Adegoke investigates the role of the land surface as drivers of weather and climate using satellite remote sensing, climate diagnostic tools and regional climate models. Two interconnected issues continue to engage his attention: the direct influence of surface representation in regional atmospheric models using high resolution satellite products; and the feedbacks and interactions between the land surface and various physical components that are triggered by the land surface representation in the models. Since joining the faculty of the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) in September 2002, he has developed additional interests in climate-societal issues, especially cross-scale linkages and feedbacks between processes that impact heat stress and air quality in changing urban areas. Dr. Adegoke’s research portfolio includes funded international projects addressing environmental degradation and climate change impacts in the Lake Chad Basin and the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria. Dr. Adegoke also maintains very strong interest in Geoscience Education and is a passionate advocate for programs geared towards increasing minority representation in the sciences. He directs the UMKC GLOBE ( partnership and the NSF funded Geosciences Education Opportunities: Partnerships to Advance Teaching & Scholarship (GEOPATHS) project.
