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

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 2:30 pm3:30 pm

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).

Monday, Apr 15, 2019 at 3:00 pm4:00 pm

Something to keep in mind when studying light and algae in polar ocean ecosystems  Samuel Laney, PhDAssociate Scientist, Biology Dept, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Numerous unusual aspects of marine photosynthetic ecology are found in polar oceans, one of which is the spatial juxtaposition of two distinctly different algal ecosystems: those living in sea ice, and those living in the water column below. These two systems have historically been treated separately, studied by two largely distinct research communities, yet they compete…
