Ocean, Atmosphere & Climate

This research program includes studies of atmospheric particulates, their characteristics and their impact on human health; material transport between land and sea; and ocean response to anthropogenic carbon emissions. One focus is on improving our understanding of the ocean’s role in climate by model prediction and analysis of the responses of ocean physics, ecology and biogeochemistry to climate warming, and resulting feedbacks to the atmosphere.
