About the Author
My name is Chris Colose. I am currently a PhD candidate in an Atmospheric Science program at the University of Albany, and collaborate with members of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (all opinions expressed in this blog are my own and not necessarily of these institutions). My current research is funded under an NSF grant to study the behavior of tropical paleoclimate using oxygen isotope signatures embedded within “proxy records” (ice cores, speleothems, lake sediments, etc) and in the modeling of such behavior. I am currently investigating the influence of volcanic eruptions on tropical hydroclimate during the Last Millennium, using General Circulation Models as my main tool of inquiry.
I earned my B.S. in Atmospheric and Oceanic science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
In addition to my research, I have retained interest in a number of problems directly related to Earth’s climate, and other planets, on timescales that range from decades to billions of years. This extends to the problem of modern global warming, where I hope to clarify a number of matters that can get lost in the public discourse.
