The final UTIG seminar this semester will be given by UTIG grad students Allison Lawman, Tianyi Sun and Sophie Goliber. We asked each student to give us a little sneak-preview into what they’ll be talking about and why they’re excited about sharing their research with the science community. The seminar takes place at 10:30am (CST) […]
UTIG Ph.D. student Tianyi Sun was recently selected for one of three Outstanding Oral awards for the 2018 American Meteorological Society meeting in Austin. She presented on “Role of Stochastic Atmospheric Forcing in Tropical Pacific Decadal Variability and ENSO Modulation.” The presentation can be viewed on the AMS website. We caught up with Tianyi to learn more […]
Two new studies from The University of Texas at Austin have significantly improved scientists’ ability to predict the strength and duration of droughts caused by La Niña – a recurrent cooling pattern in the tropical Pacific Ocean. Their findings, which predict that the current La Niña is likely to stretch into a second year, could […]
Rising sea level is, and will be, an issue facing coastal regions, including Middle Pacific islands, for the foreseeable future. UTIG scientists are trying to assess the magnitude, rates and geographic distribution of future changes in sea level by studying past sea level changes.
Jud Partin, a Research Associate at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics, recently made waves in the climate community by challenging how the Younger Dryas affected rainfall in the Philippines.
