The Rutgers Climate Institute is a University-wide effort to address one of the most important issues of our time through research, education and outreach. The Institute draws upon strengths in many departments at Rutgers by facilitating collaboration across a broad range of disciplines in the natural, social and policy sciences.
Rutgers Climate Institute Student Support Fund Application Deadline May 1, 2017
The RCI Student Support Fund provides support for Rutgers student travel and related expenses for the purposes of climate change education and research. The family of William H. Greenberg (Rutgers University Class of 1944) has graciously seeded the development of this fund. The next round application deadline is May 1st for travel and related expenses that will occur between July 1 and December 31. This year funds may be limited and thus awards may be smaller than usual.
Eligibility is limited to Rutgers Ph.D. students whose major area of research is on climate change in the natural, social, health or policy sciences. The fund provides support to enable Rutgers Ph.D. students to participate in conferences, workshops, symposia, professional meetings, field activities, and visits to federal or state agencies or universities for educational or research purposes. Eligible expenses include attendance fees, lodging, meals, and transportation.
Congratulations to RCI Affiliate Dave Robinson who has been awarded the American Association of Geographers Lifetime Achievement Award!
The AAG citation reads: The 2017 AAG Life Achievement Honors is granted to Professor David Robinson from the Department of Geography at Rutgers University. Robinson is a multi-dimensional geographer who has achieved extraordinary success and impact in many domains simultaneously. As a researcher, he is a leading figure in the fields of climate science and climatology and one of the world's foremost experts on global snow cover. As New Jersey State Climatologist for the past 25 years, he is among the most publicly prominent geographers in the New York-New Jersey region, granting hundreds of media interviews each year while also overseeing a publicly accessible statewide climate and weather data network. As a long-serving department chair at Rutgers, Robinson fostered a culture of success that combined scholarly achievement with mentorship, collegiality and mutual respect among all members of the department.
Rutgers-led New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance (NJCAA) awarded 2016 Outstanding Floodplain Management Award
The Rutgers-led New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance (NJCAA) was awarded the 2016 Outstanding Floodplain Management Award for "progressive collaborative work on climate change preparedness in New Jersey"by the New Jersey Association for Floodplain Management at its 12th annual conference in Atlantic City in October. Facilitated by Jeanne Herb of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University and Marjorie Kaplan, Associate Director of the Rutgers Climate Institute, the Alliance is a network of policymakers, public and private sector practitioners, academics and NGO and business leaders designed to build climate change preparedness capacity in New Jersey. Former New Jersey Governors Tom Kean and Jim Florio are Honorary Co-Chairs and its Advisory Committee is Chaired by Michael Catania, Executive Director, Duke Farms and Kathleen Ellis, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of New Jersey Natural Gas. It has issued over 30 reports and developed tools, videos, resources and provided support in addressing climate change preparedness for New Jersey. Most recently it released three documents regarding sea-level rise in New Jersey.
Read the October 2016 reports related to the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance Science and Technical Advisory Panel on Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Storms: Assessing New Jersey’s Exposure to Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Storms: Report of the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance Science and Technical Advisory Panel; Assessing New Jersey’s Exposure to Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Storms: A Companion Report to the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance Science and Technical Advisory Panel Report; Integrating Science into Coastal Resilience Planning and Decision Making available here.
Ms. Laura Tessieri, New Jersey Association For Floodplain Management presents "Outstanding Floodplain Management Award" to Dr. Marjorie Kaplan, Rutgers Climate Institute, who accepted the award on behalf of the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance.
News in April 2017
RCI affiliate Alan Robock weighs in on the debate over the ethics of geoengineering to combat the rise in global temperatures from increasing CO2 in a NY Times Magazine article. Robock has previously published a list of 20 concerns of using geoengineering to deal with global warming.
NJ’s longest drought in 15 years is over, according to RCI affiliate and NJ state climatologist Dave Robinson in a northjersey.com article. A recent pattern shift has led to above average rainfall over the past few months, leading to the removal of drought warning advisories across the state.
In a recent NJ 101.5 article, RCI affiliate Dave Robinson discusses the unique dangers of flash flooding in New Jersey, because of increased intensity of storms and more area covered with asphalt and surfaces impervious to water.
RCI affiliate Jeanne Herb attended a roundtable discussion titled “How Climate Change Impacts Our Health” with Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. (D-NJ). The NJ Climate Adaptation Alliance’s conclusions from its Climate Change and Public Health Workgroup were offered to help advise the congressman in addressing potential health impacts of climate change.
RCI co-director Anthony Broccoli explains some of the indicators that show the current state of the climate and the extent of global warming on Yale Climate Connections.
Congratulations to RCI affiliate Jason Grabosky, winner of the 2017 SEBS Teaching Excellence Award!
RCI associate director Marjorie Kaplan discusses in Growing Magazine how Rutgers scientists are engaged in plant breeding programs to safeguard New Jersey crops against climate change; while Nick Vorsa, director of Rutgers Marucci Blueberry Cranberry Research and Extension Center discusses climate related vulnerability of blueberry and cranberry from fruit rot as a focus of his breeding research.
RCI affiliate Alan Robock’s work on the environmental impacts of nuclear war are brought to attention in a NY Times article which delves into the possibility of using geoengineering techniques to combat global warming.
RCI affiliate Leonard Bielory discusses the recent surge of tree pollen, aggravating those with even mild allergies, in a NJ 101.5 article. Trees that typically release their pollen at different times are instead overlapping due to the late March snow storm. Bielory noted over the past 25 years “there’s actually been a doubling of individuals who are allergic, meaning the number used to be 20 percent, now we’re at 30 to 40 percent of the United States population have allergies. And they used to be allergic to two or three items, now they’re allergic to six or eight items.
Changes in the large scale atmospheric pattern have been beneficial for New Jersey's ongoing drought, according to David Robinson in a northjersey.com article. The past 30 days have been above normal, allowing for drought statuses across the state to be downgraded.
Congratulations to RCI co-director Anthony Broccoli on receiving a Faculty Scholar-Teacher Award for the academic year 2016-2017. This university wide award honors faculty members who have made outstanding contributions in research and teaching, recognizing those who bring together scholarly and classroom activities.
RCI affiliate and distinguished Rutgers professor Alan Robock was interviewed on the BBC World Service show The Inquiry, "Do we need a Plan B for climate change?" Robock discussed some of his research on geoengineering and what impacts those methods may have on the planet.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine published proceedings of a January 2016 workshop Antarctic Sea Ice Variability in the Southern Ocean-Climate System. which aims to bolster the understanding of Antarctic Sea Ice dynamics and variability.
RCI affiliate Jennifer Francis weighs in on the mechanism of how climate change may be influencing the frequency of severe weather in the Christian Science Monitor.
