Fricker, polar researchers present the future in Nature

The year is 2070, Antarctica has not what it was 50 years ago.  Helen Fricker and her colleages present scenarios of Antarcitca's future in the 14 June 2018 Nature article "Choosing the future of Antarctica." The aritcle presents continental and global outcomes from the options presented: "ambitious action" to halt enviromental impacts/greenhouse gas emission vs. a continued path of public disinterest and environmental diffidence.

Graduate Student Maya Becker wins award

Congratulations to Maya Becker, recipient of an AGU 2017 Outstanding Student Paper Awards (OSPA).  Becker, a graduate student working with Helen Fricker, won the award for her presentation at the AGU Fall Meeting titled "Mapping Ross Ice Shelf with ROSETTA-Ice airborne laser altimetry." 

Vernon awarded for "Innovation in Networking Award for Experimental Applications" by CENIC

Congratulations to Frank Vernon, Director of IGPP's Broadband Seismic Data Collection Center, who has been awarded CENIC's (California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology) "Innovation in Networking Award for Experimental Applications." The application was the implementation of real-time, data-driven simulation, prediction and visualization of wildfires. He has deployed high-speed wiresless networks that allow data collection from hundreds of stations, and developing fire cameras and multi-hazard (e.g.

Haase working with NOAA and CW3E to improve forecasting

Atmospheric Rivers, are a weather phenomena that plays a key role in the variability of the water supply and the incidence of extreme precipitation events along the West Coast of the United States.  AR2018 is a field campaign that will make offshore measurements of atmospheric rivers before they impact the west coast of the USA as part of the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes (CW3E) effort to improve forecasts for water resource management and flash flood prediction.
