AOS Research to Improve Climate Change Models

 

AOS Professor Alex Hall and Postdoctorate Researcher Anthony DeAngelis were featured on UCLA Newsroom discussing their research to help improve climate model accuracy. Findings where published on Nature, indicating that most models overestimate the amount of preciptation that will increase due to climate change, roughly 40 percent less than the current global models prediction. 

The research project was done in conjunction with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and in contribution toward UCLA’s Sutainable L.A. Grand Challenge, a campuswide initiative to transition the Los Angeles region to 100 percent renewable energy, 100 percent local water and enhanced ecosystem health by 2050. Further details on the research and implications the findings have for climate future are found on the UCLA Newsroom article.
