Drs. Jack Williams, Fuyao Wang, Michael Notaro, and Dan Vimont of the Center for Climatic Research collaborated with Dr. Patrick Gonzalez of the National Park Service to develop high-resolution historical and future projections of climate change for all of our nation's national parks. Their published study in Environmental Research Letters, which showed that the national parks are warming more than the rest of the country, led to interviews and press coverage by the University of Wisconsin-Madison News, Weather Channel, and Science Daily.

A study published in the journal Scientific Reports by Steve Vavrus, Feng He, John Kutzbach, William Ruddiman, and Polychronis Tzedakis, provides new evidence that ancient farming practices led to a rise in the atmospheric emission of the heat-trapping gases carbon dioxide and methane – a rise that has continued since, unlike the trend at any other time in Earth’s geologic history.

The Great Lakes are an epicenter for power production, commerce, recreation, and so much more, but research suggests that they are also becoming a hotbed for climate change. In fact, research from the past two decades has shown intense weather extremes and fluctuations in the area, a trend Michael Notaro, associate director of the Nelson Institute Center for Climatic Research (CCR), will help to investigate through a three-year grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) Program.
