Dr. Ben Abbott
Dr. Kevin Schaefer
Prof Kevin Schaefer’s research focuses on potential carbon dioxide and methane emissions from thawing permafrost. Permafrost is permanently frozen ground that occurs in 24% of the northern hemisphere land surface. Read more..
Dr. Jay Zwally
Prof. Ove Hoegh-Guldberg
Prof Ove Hoegh-Gulldberg’s research focuses on the biology of coral reefs, particularly how these vast ecosystems respond to global climate change and ocean acidification. So far, his published work has spanned disciplines from molecular biology to ecology and remote sensing (see laboratory website for more details: www.coralreefecosystems.org), with a particular focus on integrating multiple perspectives to single problems.

Dr. Erik van Sebille
Dr Erik van Sebille is an AR Research Fellow at the Climate Change Research Centre at the University of New South Wales, and an Associate Investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. Erik studies the pathways and time scales of water as it circulates around the oceans. Read more
Dr. Michael Marshall
The primary questions I hope to further over my research career are 1) How does agricultural expansion impact the terrestrial energy and water balance?; 2) How does this relationship influence local and regional climate?; and with an understanding of 1 and 2, 3) What are the climate and land-induced factors of water scarcity in agrarian communities and how can these communities adapt to these vulnerabilities?

Dr. Ramanathan discovered the greenhouse effect of halocarbons, particularly, CFCs in 1975. Along with R. Madden, predicted in 1980 that global warming would be detected by 2000. In 1985, he led the first international NASA/WMO/UNEP assessment on the climate effects of non-CO2 greenhouse gases and concluded that they are as important as CO2 to global climate change. He was among a team of four which developed the first version of the US community climate model in the 1980s. Read more..
