  • Brief Bio

    Dr. Alex Ruane is a Research Physical Scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and an adjunct Associate Research Scientist at the Columbia University Center for Climate Systems Research in New York City. Alex serves as the Research Coordinator and Climate Team Leader for the Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP; www.agmip.org), an international, transdisciplinary project connecting climate science, crop modeling, and economic modeling to place regional agricultural impacts of climate change into their global economic context to assess uncertainties, vulnerability, and world food security.

    Alex’s research uses a variety of climate and impacts assessment models to examine the influence of climate variability and change on a variety of sectors including agriculture, water resources, urban areas, infrastructure, energy, and human health, leading to the development of adaptation strategies and decision support tools for stakeholders and policy makers who need to understand vulnerabilities and uncertainties to successfully manage risk. Alex leads the Coordinated Climate-Crop Modeling Project (C3MP; www.agmip.org./c3mp) in its investigations of climate sensitivity at more than 1000 worldwide crop and livestock simulation sets, and has developed the AgMERRA climate forcing dataset to support agricultural impacts modeling. Alex also works to develop new methods to tailor climate scenarios for unique applications around the world, and investigates observational methods, high-frequency variations, and extreme characteristics of hydroclimate.

    Alex conducted his doctoral work studying the water cycle in the climate group at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and received a B.S. in atmospheric science at Cornell University.

    Research Interests

    Climate Impacts

    Understanding how climate variability and climate change affect our society and natural systems.

    Agricultural Impacts of Climate Change

    Assessing climate change impacts on the agriculutral sector of the United States and other developed and developing countries in order to identify and prioritize adaptation strategies.

    Climate Change Impact Scenarios

    Developing climate scenarios from cutting edge models and observations that capture important climate changes in ways that enable impacts modeling and analysis.

    Water Cycle Analysis

    Understanding major reservoirs and fluxes of water throughout the climate system at different time scales.

    Current Projects

    The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP)

    The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP; see www.agmip.org) connects leading climate, crop, livestock, and economic modelers to better assess climate impacts on food security and global agricultural production.  My work helps build and assess transdisciplinary, multi-model frameworks that gauge climate impacts and allows for the testing of adaptations from the field to international policy levels.  AgMIP Climate activities include the analysis of various historical climate and weather products, evalutation of future model simulations, and creation of climate scenarios for a number of agricultural modeling applications.

    The Agricultural Productivity Indicator and Analysis System (APIAS)

    APIAS investigates climate impacts on US agriculture using crop models run across the Conterminous United States at 0.25x0.25 degree resolution.  Simulations are run over the 1980-2010 period with historical conditions (to mimic recent seasons) and smoothed historical data (to capture the effect of intraseasonal extremes), as well as the 2010-2040 period to anticipate future impacts.  Results help identify hotspots of recent and projected climate impacts on the agricultural sector in order to prioritize the development of adaptations.

    Education

    Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, La Jolla, CA. 2002-2007
    • Ph.D. Earth Sciences: June, 2007
    • Dissertation Title: “Diurnal to Annual Variations in the Atmospheric Water Cycle”
    • Research Summary: Examined the simulation and observation of the atmosphere using a water and energy budget approach, with particular attention to the transient properties of hydrometeorological phenomena in the atmosphere and at the land surface. Global and regional reanalyses were evaluated for their abilities to match observations of variance and moisture transfers at diurnal to seasonal frequencies, as well as their sensitivities to land-surface schemes and convective parameterizations.
       
    Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. 1998-2002
    • B.S. Atmospheric Science magna cum laude with honors, 2002.
    • Honors Thesis Title: “Examining Wave Propagation Patterns in the Jovian Atmosphere Using the EPIC Model”
    • Research Summary: Advised by Dr. Joseph Harrington (Planetary Science), examined the response of Jupiter’s atmosphere to observed heating patterns, finding meridional and altitudinal variations in propagation behaviors.
