A project led by Princeton sophomore Grace Liu is examining whether the infrequent freezing of the Lake Carnegie in recent years is part of a larger trend linked to climate change. Liu began the project as a High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI) environmental intern in the research group of AOS Faculty Member...
Many tropical cyclone-prone regions of the world are expected to experience storm systems of greater intensity over the coming century, according to an extensive review of existing research published March 26 in ScienceBrief Review....
A recent analysis of the latest generation of climate models — known as a CMIP6 — provides a cautionary tale on interpreting climate simulations as scientists develop more sensitive and sophisticated projections of how the Earth will respond to increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
AOS Faculty Member Stephen Griffies, a GFDL senior scientist, is the new editor-in-chief at the AGU journal JAMES, effective January 1, 2021.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic led to a worldwide reduction in aerosol emissions. Anecdotal effects on air quality and visibility were widely reported. Less known are the impacts on the planetary energy balance, and by extension, on weather and climate.
Wintertime outbreaks of COVID-19 have been largely driven by whether people adhere to control measures such as mask wearing and social distancing, according to a study by Princeton researchers.
A newly-published review by AOS Faculty Member Sonya Legg, associate director of CIMES, summarizes current theory and observations of lee wave generation and mixing driven by lee wave breaking, distinguishing between steady and tidally oscillating forcing.
Previous studies report that extreme temperature events will occur more often and become more extreme in the future, yet there is no consensus on how much this increased likelihood of extreme heat events is due to a shift of temperature distribution mean or a changed temperature distribution shape.
