    Modern vs past abrupt changes in the Arctic

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

    The Arctic is currently warming at a high rate of change, with an average amplitude twice the global mean.  Are these changes unprecedented in the climate record as we know it? […]

    How large-scale atmospheric circulation changes drive fire activity in Equatorial Asia and southeastern Siberia?

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

    Fire activity in Equatorial Asia shows large interannual variability. Teleconnections by El Niño‐Southern Oscillation and Indian Ocean Dipole are linked to drought and fire events; however, we found here that […]

    The Impact of the AMO on the Tropical Pacific

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

    The Atlantic multidecadal oscillation (AMO) has been shown to play a major role in the multidecadal variability of the Northern Hemisphere, impacting temperature and precipitation, including intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ)-driven […]

    Role of Maritime Continent Land Convection on the Mean State and MJO Propagation

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

    The Maritime Continent (MC) region is known as a ‘barrier’ in the life-cycle of the Madden-Julian oscillation (MJO). During boreal winter, the MJO detours the equatorial MC land region southward […]

    Speleothem Fluid Inclusion Isotope Analysis: A Powerful Tool for Reconstructing the Climate of the Past

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

    Speleothem oxygen isotope records from the Asian Monsoon (AM) region cover the last 640.000 years and are important to understand teleconnection patterns across the globe. The δ18O of speleothem calcite […]

    Why did we become so smart?

    15:00 — 16:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) - Intergrated mechanical engineering building

    Humans are rather weak compared with many other animals. We are not particular fast and have no natural weapons. Yet Homo sapiens currently number nearly 7.7 billion and influenced almost […]

    Understanding the Indian Ocean Carbon Cycle variability via forward and inverse modeling methods

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

    Indian Ocean exhibits complex biophysical interactions in response to the seasonally reversing monsoons winds. Direct observations and biogeochemistry modeling studies have been employed to parameterize these complex biogeochemical interactions in […]

  • Effect of aerosol on instability and convective clouds

    Effect of aerosol on instability and convective clouds

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

    The conventional understanding of aerosol-cloud interactions, so-called Twomey and Albrecht effects, only focuses on microphysical modifications of clouds by aerosol with no consideration of dynamic responses to aerosol. Numerous recent […]
