Active Research Projects
The Paleo Hydrodynamics Data Assimilation product (PHYDA) is the first global reconstruction of hydroclimate and associated dynamical variables. It uses a novel data assimilation method and the largest multiproxy database assembled to date by combining several community-complied proxy datasets. The reconstructions, code, and proxy data were all made public upon publication and are available through the NOAA NCEI data pages and through th
The 2019 Fall AGU meeting is next week and there will be many presentations from our PaleoDynamics Group, affiliated colleagues, and collaborators. Below is a chronological list of all our activities.
The way that plants and trees respond to a warming climate and increasing levels of atmospheric CO2 has a significant impact on how they use water.
But will this leave more or less freshwater available for societies to use? That millions of people suffer from life-threatening water stresses in the current climate tells us that the answer to this question really matters.
Justin Mankin's paper on the role of plants in future freshwater availability has been published in Nature Geosciences
Justin Mankin, a former postdoctoral fellow in the Paleodynamics Lab, has published a paper in Nature Geosciences on the role of plants in future freshwater availability. Plants are expected to generate more global-scale runoff under increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations by reducing evapotranspiration.
