    Two Types of California Central Valley Summer Heat waves

    Seminar by Dr. Yun-Young Lee from APEC Climate Center (APCC)

    KST 15:00 – 16:00

    Understanding the mechanisms of how Californian Central Valley (CCV) extreme heat waves develop is very important as the events have major impacts on the economy and human safety. This study […]

    Impact of marine phytoplankton on tropical Pacific and Arctic climate using GFDL CM2.1

    Seminar by Dr. Hyung-Gyu Lim from Division of Environmental Science and Engineering / POSTECH

    KST 13:30 – 14:30

    The presentation will give key results of recent two papers of Lim et al. (2018a; 2018b). In the tropical Pacific, climate modeling groups nowadays develop earth system models (ESMs) by incorporating biogeochemical […]

    Paleoenvironmental Influences on the Earliest Peopling of the Japanese Archipelago

    Seminar by Prof. Christopher J. Bae from University of Hawai’i at Manoa

    KST 15:00 – 16:00

    During major glacial periods when sea levels were substantially lower the main islands of the Japanese archipelago (Honshu, Kyushu, Shikoku) that form paleo-Honshu would have been connected to the Asian […]

    Global- and regional paleoclimate reconstructions from greenhouse gas and borehole temperature of polar ice cores

    Seminar by Dr. Ji-Woong Yang from Seoul National University

    KST 15:00 – 16:00

    According to IPCC report, the Earth’s climate has been warming rapidly since the 20thcentury, and the current warming trend is expected to continue in the upcoming decades. Therefore, the “paleoclimatologists” […]

    Paleoclimatic investigations using carbonate speleothems in South Korea

    Seminar by Prof. Kyoung-nam Jo from Kangwon National University

    KST 15:00 – 16:00

    A cave is defined as a naturally formed underground cavity large enough for human entry. According to the formation processes, caves are usually divided into solution, volcanic, glacier, crevice, and […]

    On ENSO Theory

    Seminar by Prof. Fei-Fei Jin from University of Hawaii

    KST 10:00 – 11:00

    The fundamental dynamical mechanisms of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO)phenomenon have been extensively studied since Bjerknes envisioned ocean-atmosphere interaction in the equatorial Pacific as its main cause. This talk provides […]

    Identifying the Garden of Eden

    Seminar by Prof. Vanessa M. Hayes from University of Sydney

    KST 10:00 – 11:30

    Archaeological and genetic data concur that anatomically modern humans (AMHs or Homo sapiens sapiens) arose in Africa some 200 thousand years ago (ka). However, the exact birthplace and the reasons for […]

    How can we tell how glaciers vary over time?

    Seminar by Dr. Øyvind Paasche from Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research

    KST 10:00 – 11:00

    Mountain glaciers are still abundant in high-latitude, high-altitude areas on Earth. Their presence in the landscape, and dynamic behaviour, are intimately linked to the local climate. From observations we know […]
