Informal info about me.
I am happy to announce that our paper has been accepted for publication in Journal of Geophysical Research Atmospheres (JGR Atmospheres). The article describes a realistic way of including stratospheric dynamics in a simple dry GCM with Newtonian damping. More importantly, it discusses the effects of various stratospheric setups in such models on the frequency of Stratospheric Sudden Warmings (SSWs), which are an important feature of stratosphere-troposphere interaction.
My movies section has just been updated to include my newest creation, this time ocean science related. The movie shows anthropogenic (human-made) CO2 concentrations in the worlds' oceans, dives into the deep of the Atlantic, and flies over the top of Mauna Loa to go and take a look at Antarctica.
The pictures and videos of this year's Art of Science competition are online. My contribution is listed in the videos section, and can be watched there, in the 3D part of my movies section, or following the official Princeton Youtube channel here.
Princeton has also created a compilation of all winner movies 2014, which can be seen here.
The guys from The Research Bazaar invited me for a small discussion about the recognition of programming skills in academia, based on my article about pv_atmos earlier this month. The 30 minute interview can be seen here.
My open source paper describing the the visualization routines I have developed for my 3D renderings has been published. It's open access, and includes detailed descriptions of how to make it work, where to get the code, and how to run the example files. Have a look.
After winning last year's Art of Science competition, I will be among the finalists this year as well. This time, instead of a picture, I submitted a video. The winners will be announced at the opening ceremony on May 8th.
