A team of researchers has found that greenhouse gasses a million years ago were only slightly higher than they were between 450,000 and 800,000 years ago.
Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI) and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment (ACEE) have announced awards totaling $780,000 to support eight (8) innovative projects in energy and the environment.
Book cover of "Paleoclimate" authored by Michael Bender, professor of geoscience at Princeton University In his new book “Paleoclimate”, Michael Bender, professor of geosciences at Princeton University and a lead-member of the Carbon Mitigation Initiative (CMI), produced a concise and comprehensive history of the Earth’s climate and how it has changed over time. The field of Paleoclimatology is the study of such changes and their causes. In particular, the stud
Jorge Sarmiento and Daniel Sigman are among Princeton researchers pushing through the challenging conditions of the Southern Ocean because they want to learn more about the waters at the bottom of the globe.
Princeton geosciences professor Michael Bender, an internationally recognized authority on paleoclimate, provides a concise, comprehensive, and sophisticated introduction to the subject.
Princeton University has one of the most extensive and capable investments in climate science of any institution, suggests Stephen Pacala.
Understanding what changed at a million years B.C. could help climate scientists, like Michael Bender, better understand the climate system overall.
Two New Investigator Awards Support Research on Desalination Technology and Metabolic Rate Processes of Plants
The Grand Challenges Program has awarded two New Investigator Grants for 2011-2012. One will support a proposal by Michael Bender to develop new methods of measuring plant respiration and photosynthesis rates.
