Please join ATOC in congratulating Nikki Lovenduski for being invited to be a Kavli Fellow by the National Academy of Sciences. The Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium series (KFoS) is the Academy’s premiere activity for distinguished young scientists. Attendance at a KFoS symposium is by invitation only and attendees are selected from among award winners for early career scientists in the US and abroad.
Please join ATOC in congratulating Associate Professor Julie Lundquist for receiving the Graduate School’s Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award. This award recognizes Dr. Lundquist's outstanding graduate student advising and mentoring as ATOC's Graduate Director and as a research advisor for several graduate students.
A range of less than one degree Fahrenheit (or half a degree Celsius) of climate warming over the next century could make all the difference when it comes to the probability of future ice-free summers in the Arctic, new University of Colorado Boulder research shows.
Researchers from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and the University of Colorado Boulder led a Climate Change and Health Symposium at CU Anschutz on March 12 to explore the imminent challenges and opportunities arising from the nexus of these two interdependent arenas.
For the first time in decades, it's hard to ignore the threat of nuclear war. But as long as you're far from the blast, you're safe, right? Wrong. In this sobering talk, atmospheric scientist Brian Toon explains how even a small nuclear war could destroy all life on earth -- and what we can do to prevent it.
Congratulations to ATOC graduate student Jessica Tomaszewski who won the best student oral presentation award at the Ninth Conference on Weather, Water, Climate, and the New Energy Economy at the AMS Annual Meeting in January 2018.
Congratulations to ATOC graduate student Aleya Kaushik who was awarded and Outstanding Student Paper Award for her talk "Reconciling isotopic partitioning estimates of moisture fluxes in semi-arid landscapes through a new modeling approach for evaporation", presented at the AGU Fall Meeting in December.
