Glaciologist selected for European climate conference
Investigations of climate teleconnections using the Law Dome ice core chemistry record has led to ACE glaciologist Tessa Vance successfully applying to attend a specialist European Science Foundation conference.
The Modes of Variability in the Climate System: Past, Present and Future conference will be held in Obergurgl, Austria, from May 27 to June 1. Dr Vance will present a poster, which draws on her work with ACE Cryosphere Program leader Dr Tas van Ommen.
Dr Vance applied to attend with research on ENSO-related teleconnections between Law Dome and eastern Australia. This work will assist in understanding of past climate variability, shedding light on processes responsible for coupling high and low latitudes and providing data for model comparisons. The term teleconnections refers to climate anomalies that are related despite being thousands of kilometres apart.
