Congratulations Sloan Coats, Celia Eddy and Zach Eilon for receiving Outstanding Student Paper (OSP) awards
at the Fall 2013 meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, CA.
Sloan won the OSP award in the Global Environmental Change section for his paper "Are Simulated Megadroughts in the North American Southwest Forced?" Sloan's main research focuses on model-data comparisons of low-frequency hydroclimate dynamics using the CMIP5 and PMIP3 model archives. Specifically, he uses the paleoclimate record as a model target for both specific hydroclimate features (e.g. megadroughts in the Southwest of North America) and more generally hydroclimate variability on multidecadal-to-centennial timescales in the PMIP3 model runs.
Contratulations Sloan, Celia and Zach!!!
