    Mechanisms of Atlantic Multidecadal Variability Intiated by Ocean Thermohaline Dynamics

    Seminar by Dr. Who Myung Kim from Climate and Global Dynamics Laboratory, National Center for Atmospheric Science

    16:00 - 17:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) - Intergrated mechanical engineering building

    Atlantic multidecadal variability (AMV) of sea surface temperature (SST) is a key source of climate variability in surrounding regions. Low frequency Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) variability is often invoked […]

    Noble gas analysis in conventional and unconventional aquatic environments - a plea for simplicity

    Seminar by Prof. Rolf Kipfer from Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag)

    10:00 - 11:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) - Intergrated mechanical engineering building

    Atmospheric noble gases enter aquatic systems by gas / water partitioning. Therefore, aquatic noble gas concentrations in waters reflect the physical conditions prevailing during gas exchange.  Consequently, applications of dissolved […]

    Phase locking, predictability barrier, and coupling in tropical climate

    Seminar by Dr. Woosok Moon from Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics

    14:00 - 15:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) - Intergrated mechanical engineering building

    Earth’s orbit and axial tilt imprint a strong seasonal cycle on climatological data. Climate variability is typically viewed in terms of fluctuations in the seasonal cycle induced by higher frequency […]

    Natural Variability in a Changing Ocean: Emergence and Impacts

    Seminar by Ms. Sarah Schlunegger from Princeton University

    10:00 - 11:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) - Intergrated mechanical engineering building

    Anthropogenically-forced changes in the ocean are underway and critical for the ocean’s role as a carbon sink and marine habitat. Detecting such changes will require quantification of not only the […]

    Part 1) Trends and Teleconnections among South and East Asian Monsoons: A Review, Part 2) Monsoon Variability over South and East Asia : Role of Southern Annular Mode

    Seminar by Dr. Ramesh Hiranand Kripalani from Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology

    13:00 - 15:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) - Intergrated mechanical engineering building

    Part 1) The connections between South and East Asian Summer Monsoons have been a topic of research since decades. Several studies by the Chinese and the Indian scientists have documented […]

    Multi-Decadal Variability in the Indian Summer Monsoon Rainfall: Evidences through Proxy Sources

    Seminar by Dr. Ramesh Hiranand Kripalani from Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology

    10:00 - 11:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) - Intergrated mechanical engineering building

    Based on the analysis of the observed Indian summer monsoon rainfall (ISMR) for the period 1871-2000, a 60-year cycle appeared to be evident. However, the decreasing trend in the ISMR […]

    Impacts of Urbanization on Climate Change in Asian Cities

    Seminar by Prof. Johnny Chan from City University of Hong Kong

    15:30 - 16:30 | Room 3F - Building of Construction

    During the last 20-30 years, because of rapid economic growth, extensive areas of agricultural and rural land in many countries in Asia have been transformed into cities. Such changes have […]

    Can we predict northern hemisphere land monsoon rainfall a decade in advance?

    Seminar by Prof. Bin Wang from University of Hawaii

    14:00 - 15:00 | Room 3F - Building of Construction

    Predictions of changes of the land monsoon rainfall (LMR) in the coming decades are of vital importance for successful sustainable economic development. Current dynamic models, though, have shown little skill […]
