Climate Seminar - 04/15/2019 - Mitch Bushuk, UCAR/GFDL, Princeton University
"Arctic Sea Ice Predictability in a Changing Cryosphere"

Forty years of satellite observations have documented a striking decline in Arctic sea ice area. These changes have spurred research into the predictability and prediction of Arctic sea ice on seasonal-to-interannual timescales
In this talk, I will address two related questions: (1) What is the inherent predictability of Arctic sea ice and what physical mechanisms underlie this predictability? and (2) How can this knowledge improve operational sea ice predictions? I will present findings on the relative roles of the ocean, sea ice, and atmosphere in controlling Arctic sea ice predictability. I will also present evidence for a spring predictability barrier, which may limit our ability to predict the summer sea ice minimum.

Light refreshments will be served.

PWiGS Event - 04/18/2019 - Adina Paytan, University of California, Santa Cruz
Please join us for dinner with Dr. Adina Paytan, who will be giving a talk at GFDL on Thursday, April 18 at 2pm.

Dr. Paytan is a marine biogeochemist with a range of experiences, including living abroad and working with K-12 education. She has generously offered her time to participate in a discussion about her career experiences and advice with early career scientists in GEO and AOS.

What: dinner and drinks (free!) with Dr. Adina Paytan
When: Thursday, April 18, 6:00-8:00pm
Where: Guyot 155 (Food will be in 156).
Who: early career scientists from GEO & AOS, men and women

Past discussion topics include: work-life balance, career choice, and identifying mentors. Come with questions!

**Please RSVP to Torre if you care interested,, so we can better estimate food/drinks, but feel free to attend regardless**
