The Columbia University Initiative on Extreme Weather & Climate presents a workshop on 5/6/15 on “Extreme Weather & Climate: Hazards, Impacts, Actions.” This workshop features 15 speakers (including Adam Sobel, Michael Tippett, and Tim Hall) from across Columbia University’s many schools and centers, providing an interdisciplinary experience for participants interested in extreme weather and climate.
Prof. I.C. Noyan, APAM Chair, and Prof. Raimondo Betti, were featured in the Civil Engineering magazine article, "Subatomic Particles Aid Investigation of Large Bridge Components," by Laurie A. Shuster. "Researchers in diverse fields at Columbia University are shooting neutrons into bridge cables to reliably characterize their behavior when small wires inevitably break."
Michael Tippett and Adam Sobel were featured in the article, "Experimental Forecast Projects Tornado Season: A seasonal forecast of the devastating extreme weather event may be available as soon as 2016."
The BNL Newsroom recently published three articles about Prof. Simon Billinge's recent research results including the discovery of nematic charge order at a metal-insulator transition in a novel material; the first scientific result from NSLS-II published; and data science and materials genomics work.
Prof. Latha Venkataraman and colleagues (including APAM students, Brian Capozzi and Haixing Li) were featured in Nature Chemistry's editorial, "Molecular electronics under the microscope." (Image above) "Understanding the intrinsic electronic properties of building blocks in conjugated materials can provide powerful design guidelines to control charge transport, such as tuning the nature of the charge carriers. Here, single-molecule transport studies of a family of oxidized oligothiophenes show that the molecular length determines the carrier type."
