Climate Science

The ocean and the atmosphere interacts with life to set the physical and chemical conditions of Earth's surface. At Princeton, we use multi-scale models of varying complexity and observations to study the climate system, including stratosphere-troposphere interactions, the coevolution of atmospheric pCO2, ice volume and sea level, decadal to millennial oscillators in the climate system, ocean tracers as a means to understand the cycling of climatically important molecules and the importance of ocean circulation and biology in regulating climate.
