Researchers have struggled to accurately model the changes to the abundant summer rains that sweep across the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, known to scientists as the “North American monsoon.” In a study published Oct.
Although the Atlantic Mutidecadal Oscillation (AMO) is well documented, the underlying mechanism that drives it is unknown and remains up for debate. In a new study, AOS Faculty Member Rong Zhang presents compelling findings in support of the idea that ocean dynamics play a central role in the AMO.
To understand Earth's climate, climate modelers employ a hierarchy of climate models spanning a wide spectrum of complexity and comprehensiveness.
Several studies show that changes in precipitation can amplify the effects of nitrogen input on coastal ecosystems. V.
Congratulations to AOS Faculty Member Steve Griffies, a GFDL physical scientist, who was recently named a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union (AGU). His election to the rank of AGU Fellow will be recognized at the upcoming 2017 Fall Meeting in New Orleans.
A new statistical model developed by researchers at Princeton University and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) predicts that climate change will amplify dust activity in parts of the U.S.
The authors of a new study, led by AOS Postdoctoral Research Associate Angel Munoz, have developed a new experimental forecast system for the potential risk of transmission of mosquito-borne diseases like zika, dengue and chikungunya, using an ento-epidemiological model driven by state-of-the-art climate forecasts.
A team of researchers, led by AOS Associate Research Scholar Benjamin Sulman, developed a new model that connects plant demand for nitrogen with soil microbial growth, allowing scientists for the first time to simulate how plants actively manage soil decomposition to meet their nutrient needs. The researchers showed that plants can support...
The Princeton Environmental Institute selected 11 new graduate students to join the Princeton Energy and Climate Scholars Program (PECS) for a two-year fellowship commencing this fall. Among them, AOS Graduate StudentsMichelle Frazer, Aaron Match and Sarah Schlunegger...
