AER research team contributes to Harvard-led study on natural gas leaks in Boston region

Thomas Nehrkorn

Scientists from AER's greenhouse gas (GHG) research team participated in a Harvard-led study ("Methane emissions from natural gas infrastructure and use in the urban region of Boston, Massachusetts") just published  in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

AER authors 43 oral/poster presentations at AGU Fall Meeting & AMS Annual Meeting

Ron Isaacs

We look forward to seeing colleagues at both the AGU Fall Meeting and the AMS Annual Meeting and hope you'll take a few moments to stop by some of AER's technical presentations.

As always, scientists and software engineers from Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER) are contributing significantly to the meetings, giving 43 oral and/or poster presentations over the course of these two scientific conferences. In all, 38 AER authors contributed to this research.

Verisk Climate’s Atmospheric and Environmental Research Adds Winter Temperature Animation to Arctic Oscillation Blog

Judah Cohen

We created a new animation that shows the observed evolution of temperature anomalies throughout the Northern Hemisphere landmasses based on snow cover alone. We composited daily temperatures (using a five day filter) of years with observed high Eurasian October snow cover minus low Eurasian October snow cover.  The animation runs from September 1 through February 28. You can view it on the Arctic Oscillation blog toward the bottom of the page.

Eli Mlawer

AER is proud that 10 of our scientists were the lead authors presenting their research on a wide range of topics at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) annual Fall meeting. In all, 33 AER scientists contributed to 28 research studies in 7 science categories ranging from greenhouse gases to land surface processes to space weather.
 

AER scientists at the cutting edge of GHG research

Janusz Eluszkiewicz

AER scientists involved in greenhouse gas (GHG) research, Janusz Eluszkiewicz and Thomas Nehrkorn, are co-authors of a Harvard-led study "Anthropogenic emissions of methane in the United States" just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) and receiving considerable attention worldwide for its conclusion that methane emissions in the U.S. are significantly greater than previous estimates.

15 Research Studies by AER Scientists Cited in IPCC WG1 AR5 Report on Climate Change

Ron Isaacs

When the U.N.’s IPCC released the WG-1 AR5 report, we were proud to see the breadth of research by AER scientists cited in the report. It’s an indication that AER scientists have helped advance the scientific discourse about the Earth’s climate by providing research covering a broad range of topics from the ocean depths to the top of the atmosphere.
