Accelerating Climate Action: A Workshop for Community and Education Leaders

Katie Boyd will be attending this workshop during the Global Climate Action Summit.



In China, people breathe air thick with the lung-damaging pollutant ozone two to six times more often than people in the United States, Europe, Japan, or South Korea, according to a new assessment. By one metric—total number of days with daily maximum average ozone values (based on an 8-hour average) greater than 70 ppb—China had twice as many high ozone days as Japan and South Korea, three times more than the United States, and six times more than Europe.

New study: Ozone levels higher across China than in other countries tracking the air pollutant

Neesha Schenpf

Neesha Schnepf and her geomagnetism research group works with space-based, airborne, marine, and in-situ magnetic field observatories to study changes in Earth’s magnetic field on a minute, hourly, daily, and yearly time frame. The primary application of this research is to improve navigation accuracy for land, sea, and airborne modes of transportation, to enhance satellite orientation, and to explore natural resources.

Ariel Morrison

Ariel Morrison’s research focuses on the physical processes of the Arctic climate system and how the Arctic is changing in a warming world. She uses satellite observations and climate models to study the relationships between clouds and sea ice. Her other research passion is geoscience education research: she uses biometric data to measure student engagement in climate change classes to improve undergraduate interest in and learning retention of climate science information.

Aditya Choukulkar

Aditya Choukulkar received his PhD from Arizona State University, where his research centered on developing a vector retrieval technique based on optimal interpolation for retrieving two-dimensional wind fields from a coherent Doppler lidar. His current research focus is on characterizing uncertainties associated with Doppler lidar measurements. This work will lead to improved understanding of wind and turbulence retrievals and ensure proper interpretation of observations when comparing to forecast models.
