PhD opportunity: The role of wave-cloud coupling in shaping patterns of clouds

September 30, 2019 9:19 am Published by Comments Off on PhD opportunity: The role of wave-cloud coupling in shaping patterns of clouds

This project analyzes satellite images and other observational data to study two-way interactions between convection and tropospheric waves. In particular, it investigates how these interactions influence patterns of convection and clouds. Numerical experiments in the form of high-resolution simulations are designed to support the results.

Alexandra Auderset – Gulf Stream intensification after the early Pliocene shoaling of the Central American Seaway

Alexandra Auderset (Max Planck Institute). Gulf Stream intensification after the early Pliocene shoaling of the Central American Seaway The shoaling of the Central American Seaway (CAS) around 4.6 Ma (million years ago) is thought to have enhanced the Gulf Stream, strengthening the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation and potentially influencing the evolution of Pliocene climate. Paleoclimate records indicate a buildup of heat and salinity in the Caribbean and changes in the formation of North Atlantic Deep Water (NADW) associated with a major... View Article
