Dr. Hosmay Lopez Climate projections for the 21st Century suggest an increase in the occurrence of heat waves. However, the timing for the externally forced signal of anthropogenic climate change (ACC) to emerge against the background natural variability (i.e., Time of Emergence, ToE) particularly on regional scale make reliable future projections of heat waves challenging. Here, we combine observations and model simulations under present and future climate forcing to assess internal variability versus ACC in modulating US heat waves. The…

Rafik Zarrad Institut National des Sciences et Technologies de la Mer (INSTM-Mahdia), Tunisia This study helped characterise the spawning habitats and nurseries for anchovy, sardinella and sardine in the central Mediterranean sea. Additionally, the research allowed for a description of the larval fish larval assemblage, its diversity, and its relationhip to environmental parameters. Mr. Zarrad is a visiting scientist at CIMAS. He is a Tunisian researcher active in the scientific Committee of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic…

Edwin K. Schneider George Mason University The Interactive Ensemble (IE) CGCM strategy couples the mean of an ensemble of AGCMs to an OGCM. The IE filters out forcing of the ocean by the specific evolution of the atmospheric weather noise, while effectively parameterizing the response of the 3D atmospheric transient eddy fluxes to time dependent external and SST forcing. A new IE coupling strategy has been developed at RSMAS for CESM and has been tested in a CCSM4 version. The…

Exploring the persistence of reef ecosystems in acidified oceans: Incorporation of ecological and environmental complexity to understand real-world responses

Dr. Ian Enochs The rising concentration of anthropogenic CO 2 in seawater, a process known as ocean acidification (OA), will have serious implications for the structure and function of numerous marine ecosystems such as coral reefs. Laboratory studies have revealed that OA will decrease calcification, accelerate biological carbonate dissolution (bioerosion), and influence the behavior and physiology of numerous species. Understanding the net outcome of these processes requires incorporation of ecological and environmental complexity greater than that provided by studies of…

Dr. Jagadish Shukla George Mason University Jagadish Shukla is a Distinguished University Professor at George Mason University. He had a modest beginning – born in a village without roads and electricity, he received his primary education under a large Banyan tree. He received his Ph.D. from Banaras Hindu University in India, and Sc.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Shukla’s scientific contributions include studies of monsoons, deforestation, and predictability of weather and climate. His research led to the notion of…
