Climate Physics Journal Club

This is a venue for presenting your most recent discoveries, fresh ideas, current papers and hot topics in climate science in general.

Our main focus is on the physics of drivers of weather and climate on all scales, but we also welcome talks about issues related to climate system dynamics.

As a presenter, you'll discuss your research and results in a very informal setting. Talks are designed to foster conversation and interaction, both in-person and online (click on any event title below to add comments).

Questions (even the tough ones) are always welcome. Hope to see you there!

Interested in presenting?

Please contact Vladimir Alexeev.

Climate Physics Journal Club- Arctic warming amplification & arctic-lower latitude linkages

By IARC Web Design | May 21, 2019 | Comments Off on Climate Physics Journal Club- Arctic warming amplification & arctic-lower latitude linkages

Presenter: Xiangdong Zhang. Surface air temperature increase has been amplified in the Arctic. However, the sparse observational network limits accurate estimates of Arctic warming. There is uncertainty in global warming rate, including the period of so-called “hiatus” from 1998-2012 as indicated by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report (IPCC AR5).

Climate Physics Journal Club- Climate-scale predictability and variability of Alaska wildfire

By IARC Web Design | May 21, 2019 | Comments Off on Climate Physics Journal Club- Climate-scale predictability and variability of Alaska wildfire

Presenter: Peter Bieniek. Wildfire in Interior Alaska is a key natural driver of the landscape and can be a hazard at the wildland-urban interface. Years with extreme wildfire activity in Alaska have increased in frequency in recent decades and are projected to continue to increase under climate change.
