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.
Targeted geoengineering to preserve continental ice sheets deserves serious research and investment, argues an international team of researchers in a Comment published March 14 in the journal Nature.
A seemingly small difference between an increase of 1.5 and 2.0 degrees C would mean the inundation of lands currently home to about 5 million people, including 60,000 who live on small island nations, a new study found. Michael Oppenheimer...
An international team of researchers, assembled by Lucia Gualtieri, a postdoctoral research associate in Geosciences, and AOS Associate Research Scholar Salvatore Pascale, has found a new way to identify the movement and intensity of hurricanes, typhoons and other tropical cyclones by tracking the way they shake the seafloor, as recorded on...
Nereus Alum Rebecca Asch, an assistant professor in the Department of Biology, East Carolina University, and AOS Alum Daniele Bianchi, an assistant professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, UCLA, are among the 126 early-career scholars awarded prestigious 2018 Sloan Fellowships, the Alfred P.
It is our pleasure to announce a new informal seminar series focused on climate research. The Climate Seminars are scheduled biweekly on Mondays, 4:00-5:00 p.m., in Guyot Hall, Room 220.
Congratulations to AOS Graduate Student Jane Baldwin, a PEI-STEP fellow, who was awarded an Outstanding Student Presentation Award at AGU's Fall Meeting in December for her presentation on the research she's conducting under the fellowship.
