Hi everyone,

On this coming Friday, we will have a department colloquium at 3:00 PM. This week's colloquium will be virtue, with a zoom link


The information of the colloquium is attached in the following and a separated flyer.


Speaker: Prof. Da Yang, Department of Land, Air, and Water Resources, University of California, Davis

Title: Cold Air Rises

Abstract:   Conventional knowledge suggests that warm air rises while cold air sinks. In this seminar, the speaker will use satellite observations to show that, on average, rising air is colder than sinking air in the tropical atmosphere. This is due to the buoyancy effect of water vapor --- an overlooked effect in studying large-scale circulations and climate. Preliminary analysis suggests that some state-of-art climate models have misrepresented the buoyancy effect of water vapor, which can lead to profound biases in simulation clouds, rainfall, and climate.

Time/Zoom Link: 3 PM; Friday September 10,


You may meet the speaker at 2:30 PM.
