Studying interaction of atmospheric dynamics and surface dryness in the subtropics

Xavier Levine Department of Geology and Geophysics 2012-2014

Dry regions, where evaporation and evapotranspiration exceeds precipitation in the annual mean, cover about 40% of Earth’s land surface and affect the livelihood of nearly 2 billion people, primarily in developing countries. Drought intensity and frequency may have increased in many dry zones of the subtropics over the past 30 years, and...

Belowground biotic interactions and how they respond to, and influence climate change via climate-ecosystem carbon feedbacks.

Thomas Crowther Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies 2012-2014

My research interests include soil, ecosystem and climate change ecology. Specifically, my work focuses on biotic interactions and how they respond to, and influence climate change via climate-ecosystem carbon feedbacks. My PhD work, conducted at Cardiff University, centered on the topic of soil biodiversity. This work advanced our...

Understanding the role of ocean dynamics in the transport, pathways and connectivity of marine organisms at different spatial and temporal scales.

Maria Andrea Pinones Department of Geology and Geophysics 2010-2012

I received my PhD and M.S. degrees in Oceanography from the Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography (CCPO) - Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department at Old Dominion University.  Before I moved to the US I received a B.S. degree in Oceanography from the Catholic University of Valparaiso in Chile.
