Hurricane Eta is the ninth named storm and fifth consecutive hurricane to rapidly intensify this year, a phenomenon that has doubled in proportion since 1982.
In a new study published in Nature Communications, the authors used multi-year observations from a very large array of robotic drifting floats in the Southern Ocean to determine key factors governing phytoplankton biomass dynamics over the annua
Estuary and coastal ocean forecasts based on predictions of temperature, salinity, currents, and storm surge have been shown to be able to protect lives and property from storm surge, assist search and rescue operations, and protect public health. These forecasts enable predictions of harmful algal blooms and the dispersion of oil spills.
In a new paper, led by AOS Associate Research Scholar Alex Haumann, the authors find that there is much more supercooled ocean water on planet Earth than previously thought. Supercooled ocean water refers to seawater that has a temperature lower than the freezing point.
You can now explore the full scope of Princeton’s latest environmental research – plus the University’s legacy of environmental commitment – through a single portal: Princeton Environmental Research: A Half-Century at the Forefront. The new site was launched Thursday, October 15.
Hurricane Delta, gaining strength as it bears down on the U.S. Gulf Coast, is the latest and nastiest in a recent flurry of rapidly intensifying Atlantic hurricanes that scientists largely blame on global warming. (AOS Faculty Member Gabe Vecchi quoted)
A new paper led by former AOS Postdoc Lucas Harris (GFDL) on the development of a unified “one code, one executable, one workflow” global prediction modeling system, called SHiELD, has been published in the Journal of Advances in Modeling the...
