2011-emmacutler.jpgProject: Climate Modeling: Interactions Between Volcanism, Weathering, Ice Albedo, Energy Balance, and Temperature

Emma worked on developing mathematical models of climate dynamics to learn more about the causes of abrupt changes observed in the paleoclimate record. These models consider ice albedo feedback, changes in the earth's orbit, the carbon cycle, and greenhouse gases. She focused on the relationship between volcanism, silicate weathering, and atmospheric carbon dioxide.  

Pecha Kucha

These presentations are in PechaKucha format. PechaKucha is Japanese for ‘chit-chat’. It is a presentation methodology devised in 2003 in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each. The slides auto advance to keep the presentations concise and quick paced. Each presentation is (about) 6 minutes and 40 seconds long.
