Welcome to our new website!
Prof. Wing's first NSF grant has been awarded! The grant, "AGS-1830724 Collaborative Research: Climate Feedbacks in Radiative-Convective Equilibrium-The Role of Self-aggregation of Convection in a A Multi-Model Ensemble of Idealized Simulations", is funded through NSF's program on Climate and Large-Scale Dynamics and is in collaboration with Prof. Kevin Reed at Stony Brook University. It will provide three years of funding for Prof's Wing and Reed, a graduate student, and a postdoc. They will analyze the RCEMIP simulations to better understand the response of clouds to warming, the robustness of self-aggregation of convection across the spectrum of models and the extent to which the degree of aggregation depends on temperature, and the climate sensitivity of the RCE state and the impact of self-aggregation on the climate sensitivity. We are thrilled to receive this grant and are excited to get started on the work!Read more
American Geophysical Union (AGU) Publications announced today that Prof. Wing has received the 2017 Editor's Citation for Excellence in Refereeing for Geophysical Research Letters. This award recognizes in-depth evaluations, often over more than one round of revision, that greatly improved the final published papers. All the recipients of Editor's Citations were recognized in an article in EOS. Prof. Wing thanks AGU for their recognition of her reviewing efforts!Read more
Prof. Wing was honored to participate as an invited speaker at a recent workshop on the Future of Earth System Modling at Caltech. The focus of the workshop was on Atmopshere, Oceans, and Computational Infrastructure. She presented about the implications of recent CRM results on convective aggregation, clouds, and climate. The workshop featured three days of thought-provoking discussion on process parameterization, machine learning, parameter estimation, computational infrastructure, and the biggest areas in which our models need to improve.
We are excited to attend the 33rd Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL next week! Prof. Wing will give a talk about her work analyzing tropical cyclone formation and intensification in high-resolution climate models [talk 9C.5 on Wednesday at 11:30AM], as well as a poster on RCEMIP [poster 48 on Tuesday] and a poster on her work with Prof. Tim Cronin of MIT on clouds, circulation, and climate sensitivity in convection-pertmitting models of radiative-convective equilibrium [poster 49 on Tuesday]. M.S. student Jake Carstens will participate in his first hurricane conference as a student assistant.
Prof. Wing recently participated as an invited speaker in "MIT on Chaos and Climate", a symposium which celebrated the lives and scientific legacies of Jule Charney and Ed Lorenz. The talks are all available to watch online at bit.ly/MITChaosClimate.
Prof. Wing recently returned from Australia, where she attended the Pan-GASS Conference on Understanding and Modelling Atmospheric Processes, along the beautiful Great Ocean Rd. in Lorne, Australia. She discussed RCEMIP and encouraged members of the GASS community to participate. Her presentation can be found here. Prof. Wing also visited Monash University, the University of Melbourne, and the University of New South Wales to present her research and meet with colleagues in the tropical convection and tropical cyclone communities. She also managed to find time to see koalas, kangaroos, wallabys, little blue penguins, kookaburra, and many many cockatoos!
The protocol paper for RCEMIP, an international intercomparison of models configured in RCE that is being lead by Prof. Wing, is now finalized and published in Geoscientific Model Development! The paper can be found at https://doi.org/10.5194/gmd-11-793-2018.Read more
We are now a group of two! Jacob Carstens joins the group as a M.S. student. Jake received his B.S. in Meteorology from Florida State University and will be studying tropical cyclone genesis. Welcome, Jake!
