Barnes, Elizabeth

Questioning rivers in the sky

 | 

Barnes, Elizabeth

Since the 1960s scientists have used the so-called "butterfly effect" to explain why we struggle to predict such extreme events with more than two weeks of advanced notice. But Elizabeth Barnes, Assistant Professor at Colorado State...

Alin, Simone

Understanding the ocean's changing chemistry

 | 

Alin, Simone

Ocean chemistry is changing faster right now than at any time over the past 50 million years. “We are fundamentally altering marine ecosystems,” says NOAA oceanographer Simone Alin, Ph.D. With her colleagues at...

Lau, Gabriel

Projecting climate variations

Otkin, Jason

Predicting rapidly-developing droughts based on plant stress

 | 

Otkin, Jason

Growing up on a farm in Minnesota, Jason Otkin felt that the weather controlled everything in his life. In the middle of “farm country,” Otkin’s parents made a living herding cattle and growing corn, soybeans, alfalfa,...

Pan, WeiChiang

Hurricane Ready - Sea Grant Researcher Seeks Stability in Chaos

Pan, WeiChiang

WeiChiang Pang is developing a framework for predicting failures of the building envelope -- including the foundation, roof, walls, doors, and windows -- with the goal of desigining a hurricane-resistant home.

Ginoux, Paul

Bringing a sense of wonder to climate modeling

 | 

Ginoux, Paul

A physical research scientist, who has evaluated climate models and observed aerosols at GFDL since 2004, Paul Ginoux likes making discoveries but enjoys correcting mistakes within those findings even more.
