  1. Local and non-local mechanisms of Arctic warming

    25 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir Alexeev

    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...

  2. Vladimir Alexeev Seminar II (joint Paleo and Cryosphere)

    06 Dec 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir Alexeev

    One of the most pronounced changes in the Arctic is the decline in minimum sea ice extent that has been continuing for a couple of decades. One potential reason for this decline is the changed polarity of the transpolar drift (TD) pattern, also often called Arctic Dipole. This pattern is at least...

  4. Gomez Seminar Part 1 (joint Paleo and Cryosphere)

    30 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Natalya Gomez

    I will begin with an overview of the physics, modeling and measurement of static sea-level changes and glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) following variations in the distribution of grounded ice, including some applications of sea-level theory to paleo and modern climate problems. I will then...

  5. Jaffrey Seminar

    30 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Marc Jaffrey

    Glaciers are known to be responsible for some of the fastest erosion rates observed, with basin-scale erosion rates reaching up to 10 mm/yr and varying by orders of magnitude. This variability in erosion rates has yet to be addressed systematically in quantitative terms. While the roles of...
