Researchers at Princeton University and NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) have been awarded up to $40 million over five years to fund a new cooperative institute that focuses on Earth system research.
A recent study in the journal Nature Geosciences, led by AOS Faculty Member Laure Resplandy, assistant professor of geosciences and the Princeton Environmental Institute, and coauthored by AOS Research Oceanographer Keith Rodgers, among others, examined the global carbon cycle and suggests that scientists may have misgauged how carbon is...
Congratulations to former AOS postdoc Laura Jackson (Met Office), former AOS student Sarah Kang (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology), AOS faculty member and CICS associate director Sonya Legg, former AOS student Geeta Persad (Carnegie Institution for Science), former AOS student Anna Trugman (University of Utah) and former AOS...
Please join NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) and Princeton University’s Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences program as we honor the life and career of a departed colleague, Dr. Ants Leetmaa, former director of GFDL. Dr. Leetmaa served as GFDL director (2001–2007), and director of NOAA’s National Weather Service Climate...
AOS Senior Meteorologist Suki Manabe will be awarded the Crafoord Prize in Geosciences on May 24, 2018.
Congratulations to Jane Baldwin who successfully defended her Ph.D. Thesis, “Orographic Controls on Asian Hydroclimate, and an Examination of Heat Wave Temporal Compounding,” on May 15, 2018.
In a Nature News and Views entitled “Will Ocean Zones with Low Oxygen Levels Expand or Shrink?,” AOS Faculty Member Laure Resplandy discusses the extreme sensitivity of ocean oxygen minimum zones (OMZs) to biological and physical changes, and the difficulty of quantifying and anticipating these changes.
In the tropical Indian Ocean, the natural oxygen minimum zone (OMZ), when combined with global warming and agricultural runoff, triggers coastal "dead zones" in which near-zero levels of oxygen (O2) suffocate marine ecosystems and devastate local fisheries.
