A coral ensemble record of the El Niño southern oscillation over the mid-to-late holocene
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-07-28)
The El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) represents the largest source of year-to-year global climate extremes. However, its sensitivity to external climate forcing, whether natural or anthropogenic, is difficult to assess ...
Signatures of the El Nino-southern oscillation on rainfall and cave dripwater oxygen isotopes in N. Borneo
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-12-11)
Oxygen isotope (δ18O) records of speleothem carbonates are a critical terrestrial paleoclimate archive, providing insight into past hydroclimate variations and past changes in atmospheric circulation. Specifically, time ...
The role of meridional modes in pacific climate variability and change
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-11-13)
Decadal changes in Pacific climate affect long-term transitions in marine ecosystems and influence the statistics of weather including ocean and atmosphere extremes such as strong droughts, hurricanes and marine heatwaves. ...
Regional hydrology captured in northern Borneo rainwater and dripwater isotope variability
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-04-08)
Oxygen and hydrogen isotopes (δ18O, δD) are increasingly powerful tools for reconstructing past hydroclimate variability. The utility of δ18O- and δD-based paleoclimate records, however, depends on our understanding of how ...
On the uncertainties and dynamics of Pacific interannual and decadal climate variability and climate change
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-11-11)
Tropical and extratropical Pacific decadal climate variability substantially impact physical and biological systems in the Pacific Ocean and strongly influence global climate through teleconnection patterns. Current ...
Coral records of central tropical Pacific sea-surface temperature and salinity variability over the 20th century
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-07-07)
Accurate forecasts of future regional temperature and rainfall patterns in many regions largely depend on characterizing anthropogenic trends in tropical Pacific climate. However, strong interannual to decadal-scale tropical ...
