Bill Boos, Department of Geology & Geophysics at Yale University, explains new research into the mechanics of monsoons answering the question why it rains where it rains in the tropics.

Bill Boos introduces Professor Yutaka Kondo, Department of Earth and Planetary Science, The University of Tokyo, as the first speaker in a day-long symposium devoted to recent advanced in atmospheric science. Professor Kondo discusses a range of chemical and physical processes incorporating recent models and in situ measurements.

Nadine Unger, Department of Geology & Geophysics and School of Forestry & Environmental Studies at Yale University, explains the advantages of considering multiple species of aerosols based on their industrial source and the implications for regulating how they enter the environment. The agricultural sector receives special attention as...

Ayako Abe-Ouchi, Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute at The University of Tokyo, lectures on Modeling the 100,000-year Glacial-interglacial Cycles: Forcing and Feedback.

Trude Storelvmo, Department of Geology & Geophysics at Yale University, explains how various species of aerosol differentially effect cloud formation and the consequences for radiative forcing. She further explains some of the implications of those findings for proposed geo-engineered options such as cloud seeding to counteract the effect...

Jeffrey Shaman, from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, discusses the “crossroads of scale” between climate change and infectious disease, and what it implies for malaria and cholera in a warming world.
