Ph.D. student Alexander MacIsaac gave a talk at the 2021 European Geophysical Union meeting about new applications for the coupling of the University of Victoria Earth system climate model version 2.10 with FAIR, the atmospheric chemistry module he developed.
Congratulations to Claude-Michel Nzotungicimpaye who defended his PhD. thesis on “Investigating the importance of methane for future climate change: wetland methane emissions, the permafrost carbon feedback, and methane mitigation”. Well done, Claude-Michel!
Lab director, Kirsten Zickfeld, and lab members Claude-Michel Nzotungicimpaye & Rachel Chimuka presented their research virtually during the 2020 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting.
Former lab member, Nadine Mengis, recently published her article “Evaluation of the University of Victoria Earth System Climate Model version 2.10 (UVic ESCM 2.10)” in the Geoscientific Model Development Journal. You can view the article here.
Former lab member, Xinru Li, recently published her article “Irreversibility of Marine Climate Change Impacts under Carbon Dioxide Removal” in the Geophysical Research Letters Journal. You can view the article here.
Congratulations to lab director, Kirsten Zickfeld, who received an SFU Distinguished Professor of Climate Science designation for her exceptional performance and distinguished accomplishments relative to her rank and years of service.
Congratulations to Nesha Wright who defended her MSc. thesis on “Projected Changes in Northern Hemisphere Permafrost in Temperature Stabilization and Overshoot Scenarios”. Great job, Nesha!
Welcome to SFU Environmental and Biological Science undergraduate student, Jesse Kemp, who will join the Climate Research Lab for the summer to work on a project on the carbon cycle response to carbon dioxide removal. To fund her project, Jesse was awarded a VPR Undergraduate Student Research Assistantship.
On October 8 2018 the Intergovernmental Panel (IPCC) released its Special Report on the Global Warming of 1.5 degrees. Kirsten Zickfeld, a lead author of the report, commented on the report’s finding in numerous interviews. She says the world is at a "critical juncture" if it is to avoid a potentially devastating rise in global mean temperature.
Congratulations to research assistant Rachel Chimuka, who won 2nd place at the undergraduate research poster competition organized by the SFU Science Undergraduate Research Journal.
Congratulations to PhD student Claude-Michel Nzotungicimpaye, who was awarded a KEY graduate scholarship to incorporate big data approaches, tools, and analysis into his doctoral research.
Congratulations to Mehdi Aminipouri who was awarded a Mitacs Globalink Research Award to fund a research stay at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden in the fall.
Kirsten Zickfeld attended the First Lead Author Meeting for the Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in Guangzhou, China. Kirsten will work with an international team on the Carbon Cycle chapter of the report.
