Climate and COVID-19 Interview

04.24.2020
Christian Braneon (611/SciSpace) was featured in a recent E&E News interview titled “Frontline-line Communities Face Dual Threat in Climate, COVID-19” by Jennifer Hijazi, E&E News reporter. Braneon discusses the impact of intense heat waves that may increase hospitalizations and death rates during the summer period.

Coronavirus Impacts Field Work

Goddard Space Flight Center airborne campaigns are highlighted in a recent Capital Weather Gang article in The Washington Post. The article describes the novel coronavirus's impact on scientific research and field campaigns.

Study Confirms Climate Models are Getting Future Warming Projections Right

01.09.2020
There's an old saying that “the proof is in the pudding,” meaning that you can only truly gauge the quality of something once it's been put to a test. Such is the case with climate models: mathematical computer simulations of the various factors that interact to affect Earth's climate, such as our atmosphere, ocean, ice, land surface and the Sun.

Overview

Research at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies emphasizes a broad study of Global Change, the natural and anthropogenic changes in our environment that affect the habitability of our planet. These effects may occur on greatly differing time scales, from one-time forcings such as volcanic explosions, to seasonal/annual effects such as El Niño, and on up to the millennia of ice ages.

The Institute's research combines analysis of comprehensive global datasets, derived mainly from spacecraft observations, with global models of atmospheric, land surface, and oceanic processes. Study of past climate change on Earth and of other planetary atmospheres provides an additional tool in assessing our general understanding of the atmosphere and its evolution.

GISS is located at Columbia University in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of New York City. You can learn more about the institute at the GISS website.
