ESE/EPS Seminar: Anna M. Michalak, “Moving from Water Quantity to Quality: Exploring Climate Impacts on Eutrophication”

4:00pm to 5:00pm

Location: 

Haller Hall, Geological Museum Room 102, 24 Oxford St.

Dr. Anna M. Michalak is a faculty member in the Department of Global Ecology of the Carnegie Institution for Science and a professor in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford University. She studies the cycling and emissions of greenhouse gases at urban to global scales – scales directly relevant to informing climate and policy – primarily through the use of atmospheric observations. She also explores climate change impacts on freshwater and coastal water quality via influences on nutrient delivery to, and on conditions within, water bodies. Her approach is focused on the...

Munk - Mitrovica Article on Climate Change and Longer Days

May 17, 2016

Please follow this link to an interesting KPBS article featuring the work of renowned Earth scientist Walter Munk and our own Jerry Mitrovica discussing how rising sea levels actually make the days a bit longer by slowing the Earth's rotation.  A case of contemporary research validating and confirming the ideas of the wonderful minds that preceded our work.

Gazette Article Featuring Dave Johnston's Research

October 6, 2014

Please follow this link to a Harvard Gazette article "A Read on Seawater Sulfate" featuring the research of Dave Johnston's group.  Quoting from the article "The ocean is often depicted as teeming with life, from crustaceans and fish to whales and other mammals, but in fact large swaths of it are virtual deserts, populated only by bacteria and a handful of particularly hardy species."  Along with...
