The Carbon Mitigation Initiative (CMI) recognized CIMES Researcher Yujin Zeng, an AOS associate research scholar, at the CMI Annual Meeting for outstanding published research.
Princeton University researchers report in the journal Science that unless greenhouse gas emissions are curbed, marine biodiversity could be on track to plummet to levels not seen since the extinction of the dinosaurs.
The Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES) has announced awards totaling $612,000 to support eight innovative, cross-disciplinary projects aimed at modeling and understanding the Earth system, projects that align closely with the strategic goals of NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL).
Ocean acidification (OA) is a consequence of the absorption of anthropogenic carbon emissions and it profoundly impacts marine life. Arctic regions are particularly vulnerable to rapid pH changes due to low ocean buffering capacities and high stratification.
CIMES Researcher Noemi Vergopolan, an AOS postdoctoral research associate, won the 2022 Paul F. Boulos Excellence in Computational Hydraulics/Hydrology Award from the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists for her work on hyper-resolution land surface modeling.
AOS Faculty Member Ching-Yao Lai's "Project Learning How Quickly Antarctic Ice Shelves Melt Using Neural Networks" is one of eight interdisciplinary AI research projects that have won seed funding from Princeton University’s ...
Prediction on weather and seasonal timescales has become routine, but the “subseasonal” time scale of a few weeks has proven difficult.
Record-setting fires in the western US over the last decade caused severe air pollution, loss of human life, and property damage. Enhanced drought and increased biomass in a warmer climate may fuel larger and more frequent wildfires in the coming decades.
In the tropical Pacific, year-to-year changes in chlorophyll, a proxy for the phytoplankton base of ocean food webs, is dominated by the El Niño–Southern Oscillation. El Niño, triggered by westerly wind anomalies and subsequent redistributions of upper ocean heat content, can sharply reduce the regional supply of nutrients, limiting...
AOS Faculty Member Laure Resplandy, assistant professor of geosciences and the High Meadows Environmental Institute, co-led a huge international effort that used modeling and observations to determine the role of waterways – streams, rivers, estuaries, mangrove forests, and more – in both storing and transporting carbon.
