CCR scientist Feng He is the coauthor on a recent paper in Nature Geoscience exploring the spatial extent and dynamics of the Antarctic Cold Reversal, a cooling episode in the Southern Hemisphere that coincided with the abrupt warming in the Northern Hemisphere ~14,000 years ago. The study shows how past abrupt climatic changes in the North Atlantic propagated globally and provides evidence from ice-core data and paleoclimate modeling that both oceanic and atmospheric transport played important roles during abrupt climate changes.

Dr. Michael Notaro presented "Climate Change in Wisconsin, With Gardening Implications" to the Mount Horeb Gardening Club on September 1, 2015. He gave an overview of the greenhouse effect, global and local historical trends in climate, future climate projections for Wisconsin, and implications to gardening in our state.

Feng He and Zhengyu Liu are coauthors on a recent paper in Nature Communications investigating the mechanisms for the global scale glacier retreat during the last deglaciation. The study shows while insolation, ice sheets and ocean circulation modulated glacier responses regionally, global scale glacier retreat is most likely related to increasing greenhouse gas concentrations during the last ice age termination, which implies that the current worldwide glaciers are prone to melting away due to anthropogenic carbon emissions.
