Postdoctoral fellowship at NCAR in the Atmospheric Sciences

31.10.2010

The postdoctoral program provides an opportunity for recent Ph.D. scientists to continue to pursue their research interests in atmospheric and related science. The program also invites postdoctoral physicists, chemists, applied mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, and specialists from related disciplines such as biology, geology, science education, economics, and geography, to apply their training to research in the atmospheric sciences. The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is a research institution located in Boulder, Colorado, operated by the nonprofit University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) under sponsorship of the National Science Foundation (NSF). Through its Advanced Study Program (ASP), NCAR offers a continuing program of postdoctoral study in the atmospheric and related sciences.

Oceans' deepest waters are warming and causing further sea level rise

30.10.2010

Ocean temperature measurements during the last 20 years show a clear warming trend of ocean water below 1000 metres depth. Warming is strongest around Antarctica, where the Antarctic Bottom Water temerature rises at about 0.03°C per decade.

Researchers 'see' how to capture carbon dioxide

29.10.2010

Researchers at the University of Calgary and University of Ottawa have provided deeper insights to CO2 capture by "seeing" the exact sites where CO2 is held in a capture material. Their discovery, published in Science, will allow scientists to design better materials to capture more CO2.

Nature Geoscience: Haiti strike-slip earthquake generated tsunami.

17.10.2010

The 12 January 2010 Mw 7.0 Haiti earthquake exhibited primarily strike-slip motion but unusually generated a tsunami. An extensive field survey reveals that coastal strike-slip fault systems produce relief conducive to rapid sedimentation, erosion and slope failure, so that even modest predominantly strike-slip earthquakes can cause potentially catastrophic slide-generated tsunamis.

Phytoplankton bloom after volcanic eruptions shows ocean seeding won't remove much atmospheric CO2

17.10.2010

Study of oceanic phytoplankton bloom after volcanic ash rain suggests that seeding oceans with iron will only have minor effect on CO2 absorption.

Rupture of south-central San Andreas fault long overdue

16.10.2010

A recent article in Geology argues that the average time interval between the last six earthquakes that ruptured the southern section of the San Andreas fault is 88 ± 41 yr. The last major earthquake in this region occurred in 1857.
