To explore how climate change will alter the seasonal dynamics in the Arctic
Mark Serreze is the PI, and Tingjun Zhang, Oliver Frauenfeld (University of Texas), Andrew Slater, Kevin Schaefer, Andrew Barrett are Co-Investigators.
We are using observations and models to determine how climate change is influencing seasonal dynamics of the ocean, atmosphere, and biosphere in the Arctic. Kevin Schaefer is focusing on how climate change influences plant phenology and seasonal terrestrial carbon fluxes.
