Local and nonlocal mechanisms of Arctic warming
25 Feb 2016  Presentations
Polar amplification (PA) is a prominent feature of currently observed and predicted future climate change suggested by both observations and models. We will discuss several PA mechanisms and feedbacks in the ocean and the atmosphere suggested by different researchers and connect it to the real...

Where's the Math in Climate Science?
09 Nov 2015  Presentations  Contributor(s): Laura Slivinski
Abstract: Climate science is dominated by the use of largescale models, of which there are only 30 or so around the world. It might then seem that the need for mathematics is limited to areas that directly support the operation of such models. I will explain, by digging into the way the models...
