Climate Science and Policy Affiliated Faculty
The Climate Science and Policy program is supported by a network of faculty and experts who provide subject depth, networking opportunities, and mentorship to each CSP cohort. These include:
Research Interests: atmospheric brown clouds, air-sea interactions, climate change mitigation, earth radiation budget measurements, lightweight unmanned aircraft vehicles as research platforms
Research Interests: error estimate of climate data, optimal gridding and averaging of climate data, historical climate data reconstruction, clouds, nonlinear water waves, ocean waves, climate extremes and drought, statistical climate prediction
Research Interests: energy policy, electric power market reform, rural energy development, genetically modified plants and related trade policy, climate-change policy, and the role of technology, innovation and competition in development.
Research Interests: accounting for uncertainty and heterogeneity, regional climate effects, solar geo-engineering international relations, decadal climate variability's influence on international climate agreements.
Research Interests: the effect that human activity has over island ecosystems through time, as well as how people have responded to climatic and environmental change in the past. Focuses on resilience and adaptation.
Research Interests: environmental epidemiology, social epidemiology, climate change and health, climate change impacts and adaptation, policy evaluation, air pollution and health, environmental justice
Research Interests: marine biology impacts on clouds and climate, air-sea exchange, aerosol-cloud interactions, on-line analysis of aerosol mixing state, education and outreach activities for the public, improvement of weather forecast models, impacts of long range transport on regional climate in California (CalWater)
Research Interests: measurements of variations in atmospheric oxygen, recent perturbations to the global carbon cycle, air-sea gas exchange, detection of ocean heat storage and transport using atmospheric gases, paleoclimate theory
