    Why did we become so smart?

    KST 15:00 – 16:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) – Integrated 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

    KST 10:00 – 11:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) – Integrated 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

    KST 10:00 – 11:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) – Integrated 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 […]

    Ice Ages, Interglacials and a 450ppm CO2 world

    KST 10:00 – 11:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) – Integrated mechanical engineering building

    We argue for a pervasive link between cold climates and polar ocean stratification. In both the Subarctic North Pacific and the Antarctic Zone of the Southern Ocean, ice ages were […]

    Climate and Societies

    KST 10:00 – 11:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) – Integrated mechanical engineering building

    High-resolution paloeclimate reconstructions show a strong relationship between climatically induced changes in environmental conditions and social, political, and economic responses in several parts of the world during the past millennia. […]

    Ocean research using multi-satellite observations: from climate to micro scales

    KST 14:00 – 15:30 | 1010 (Jasmin) – Integrated mechanical engineering building

    When Apollo 11 landed on the Moon in July 20, 1969, some of oceanographers imagined global view of oceans from a satellite in a day. Since then, over 6000 satellites […]

    A round Earth for Climate Models

    KST 10:00 – 11:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) – Integrated mechanical engineering building

    Sunlight drives the Earth’s weather, climate, chemistry, and bio-sphere. Recent efforts to improve solar heating codes in climate models focused on more accurate treatment of the absorption spectrum or fractional […]

    Global oceanic emissions of nitrous oxide to the atmosphere: from global patterns to regional-scale processes

    KST 10:00 – 11:00 | 1010 (Jasmin) – Integrated mechanical engineering building

    Assessment of the global budget of nitrous oxide (N2O), a major greenhouse gas, is limited by poor knowledge of the oceanic N2O flux to the atmosphere, whose magnitude, variability, and […]
