Climate Science, Collaboration, and Community
What We Do
Provide a framework for intense cross-disciplinary collaboration that furthers and supports research and education in climate science
Eric Steig is in The New York Times
The New York Times has been doing a series on Antarctica and the signals of climate change over the past few weeks. In Part 3 of their series, they talk about the culprit for the loss of ice around West Antarctica.
Former PCC graduate student of ESS says goodbye to glaciers
Twila Moon, a PCC Fellow and former Department of Earth and Space Sciences graduate student recently wrote an article in Science talking about the the global retreat of glaciers. Moon states that “photographs and aerial and satellite images of glaciers show consistent, substantial, and anomalous retreat from the Antarctic Peninsula through Patagonia, Kilimanjaro, and the Himalayas to Greenland and the Arctic.
Surprising results with the atmosphere from looking at ice cores, bacteria and isotopes!
UW researchers, Lei Geng, Qiang Fu, and Becky Alexander published a study in the journal Nature that shows during large climate swings, oxidants shift in a opposite direction than researchers had expected, which means they need to rethink what controls these chemicals in our air.
