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.
New NOAA-Princeton research suggests that annual snowmelt in the American West can be predicted to the scale of a mountain range as early as March — some eight months before winter begins. The research has the potential to improve water-related decisions for numerous sectors, including agriculture, tourism and fire-control.
Having played dominant roles in climate research, AOS Senior Meteorologist Syukuro (Suki) Manabe and Susan Solomon (MIT) are being rewarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences with Sweden’s Crafoord Prize in Geosciences 2018 for...
For the past two years, AOS Postdoc Michael Wolovick has studied whether a set of targeted geo-engineering projects could hold off the worst sea-level rise for centuries, giving people time to adapt to climate change and possibly reverse it.
