Brunsell Publishes Findings with Team that Assessed Drought Impact of 2012

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Nathaniel Brunsell, Chair of the Department of Geography and Atmospheric Sciences, was selected to be a member of a team that assessed the impact from the drought of 2012.  The findings were recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science and are featured here.  The name of the article was "Warm spring reduced carbon cycle impact of the 2012 U.S. Summer Drought."  The article showed that the harmful effects on summer drought were lessened by warming-induced increases in the spring carbon uptake.  We are honored that Professor Brunsell was chosen to participate in such a prestigious project and work with a distinguished group of scholars to gauge the extent of the 2012 drought.
