The successful applicant will investigate the ability of the current CMIP6 class and higher resolution climate models to capture these processes, for example, the connections between tropical convection and extratropical waves and how these processes have and will change in response to anthropogenic climate change.Read More
Climate change is affecting the amount of water evaporating (from soils and surfaces) and transpiring (evaporating through plant leaves) from the land surface. Trends derived from DOLCE V3 show clear increases in ET since 1980 over the majority of the Earth’s surface.Read More
Kim Reid offers a useful list of common unspoken knowledge for postgraduate students in the climate sciences. Hopefully, she says, this will save you some time and mistakes in the future.Read More
Irrespective of tipping points, climate change adaptation efforts will be less costly and disruptive to society – and will stand a better chance of success – if warming can be limited to 1.5°C rather than 2°C or higher. We therefore in no way advocate for policies that forgo pursuing the ambition to limit global warming to 1.5°C, regardless of whether that target remains feasible or not.Read More
