Join us for the 2018 Climate Change and Health Symposium, featuring speakers, a panel discussion, and poster session covering topics such as worker health, climate and infectious disease, climate change education, and research challenges.
The Oceans and Climate Lab is proud to welcome postdocs Jody Wycech (CIRES Visiting Fellow) and Dhruba Samanta (visiting from Singapore), and UROP awardee Abby Clabaugh. All three focusing on tropical Pacific climate!
Professor Burt Jones from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology ( KAUST ) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia visits students and postdocs in the lab. SOARS Protégé Jamin Rader discusses his summer research on the physical controls on productivity in the southern Red Sea using satellite chlorophyll observations.
The Oceans and Climate Lab is excited to host Mr. Jamin Rader as a SOARS Protégé this summer! Jamin adds to a growing faction of the lab hailing from the University of Washington, where he is majoring in Atmospheric Sciences and minoring in Applied Math. Jamin is passionate about continuing his education to better understand and advocate for this place we share.
The Oceans and Climate Lab is delighted to welcome Mr. Christopher Heney to the group as a graduate student. Mr. Heney joins CU Boulder with a Bachelor's degree in Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences from the University of Michigan followed by 11 years experience as a U.S. Naval Officer, most recently as Training Officer at the U.S. Naval Satellite Operations Center.
Paleoclimate records reveal the emergence of modern Galápagos upwelling around 1.6 million years ago. Timing and mechanism confirmed by transdisciplinary models; submarine volcanoes built islands that blocked the Equatorial Undercurrent.
Our dynamical downscaling study in collaboration with J. Donnelly (WHOI) and K. Emanuel (MIT) and with funding from the DoD suggests that anthropogenic radiative forcing will increase hurricane track density, power dissipation and genesis over the N. Pacific, attributable to smaller vertical wind shear and warmer ocean temperatures.
As part of the seminar on climate change and human health, Dr. Kathy James (University of Colorado School of Medicine and Colorado School of Public Health) discussed her research on access to clean drinking water, associated health issues and climate.
