A prestigious endowment established to fund projects that foster public engagement and the advancement of the Wisconsin Idea, the Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment grant was awarded to Michael Notaro and Rose Pertzborn for their project titled, Advancing Climate Science Education, Inquiry, and Literacy Across Rural Wisconsin Communities. In essence, this funding will allow Notaro and Pertzborn to provide a number of educators across the Curtis Tension Zone with the equipment and training they need to collect data on climate variability and change and its impacts while also making climate research a part of their curriculum and community engagement efforts.

Erin Thomas recently defended her PhD study. Her research focuses on understanding the complex interactions between El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and numerous oceanic and atmospheric phenomena. These phenomena complicate our understanding of the mechanisms responsible for generating ENSO diversity and make it very difficult to predict ENSO events. Her research utilizes statistical and physical modeling to identify both observationally-grounded and physically meaningful mechanisms that influence the development of ENSO events.
