DOE grant joins climate modeling with local, regional empirical data
Date:2/24/2011

" he said. "This project puts us on the right path for bringing these broad complex issues together."

Klaus Keller, associate professor of geoscience, will focus on improving the representation of potential climate threshold responses. This includes abrupt changes in the ocean circulation or ice sheets and the associated impacts in integrated assessment models.

Patrick Reed, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, and Thorsten Wagener, associate professor of civil engineering, will apply state-of-the-art sensitivity analysis to understand sources and implications of uncertainty in integrated assessment models. Their diagnostic analysis will bring a new level of insight into the working of these complex models.

Jim Shortle, Distinguished Professor of agricultural and environmental economics, will focus on improving the regional representation of climate impacts and adaptation in integrated assessment models.

The three-year grant is administered by the Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment and is part of a larger $6 million grant administered through Stanford University that will establish an integrated assessment modeling research community focused on model development, inter-comparisons and diagnostic testing, and multi-model ensemble-like analyses.

In addition to Stanford and Penn State, the grant includes researchers from Boston University, University of California-Berkeley, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Purdue University, Syracuse University, University of Illinois and Yale University.

A variety of Penn State graduate students and post-doctoral fellows will also participate in the project.
