New NSF Funding!

Two grants have just been funded by NSF to support our work on tropical Pacific climate variability.

“Collaborative Research: P2C2–The Role of El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Nonlinearities and Asymmetries in Modulating Tropical Pacific Climate” in collaboration with Drs. Christina Karamperidou and Fei-Fei Jin at University of Hawaii ($133K to Conroy)

“A Terrestrial Perspective of Last Millennium Hydroclimate Variability in the Central Tropical Pacific” ($367.5K to Conroy)

Thank you NSF!

 

Conroy seminar

Dr. Conroy will be speaking in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Northwestern University on Friday, January 29th, 2016. Her talk is titled: “Climate signals in stable water isotopologues across the tropical Pacific.
