Aixue Hu (DI02379)
Aixue Hu (DI02379)
Hu is a meteorologist and oceanographer who studies the interplay between variables such as climate, ocean circulation, and sea ice. Some of his recent research looks at how Greenland's melting ice sheets are projected to significantly raise sea levels along the northeast coast of North America, with potential impacts for Canadian and northeastern American cities. Hu also studies the Atlantic's meridional overturning circulation, which transports heat from the tropics and moderates the climate of northern Europe. He works in NCAR's Climate and Global Dynamics Division.

Akira Kasahara and Warren Washington relied on the Control Data Corporation 6600 supercomputer to run the NCAR General Circulation Model that they were developing in the 1960s and 70s. The output from the GCM runs were stored in the IBM 9-track magnetic tapes shown in the picture with Dr. Kasahara. These tapes were written and read by the IBM tape units. There were as many as ten such units in the NCAR computer room.

A section of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline as it runs north from Valdez along the Richardson Highway. Alaska's traditional and modern infrastructure both depend on the permafrost, or frozen soil, staying frozen. The Trans-Alaska Pipeline runs above ground or in insulated ditches to keep the heat of the oil it transports from thawing the permafrost it rests on. Scientists are already measuring significant thawing in Alaska's permafrost, which suggests potentially disastrous consequences for the pipeline and many other parts of Alaska's built and natural environment.

Alex Guenther (DI02342)
Guenther focuses on subtle interactions between land surfaces and the atmosphere. Much of his research deals with plant emissions of chemicals, such as volatile organic compounds, that can affect local air quality and climate. Guenther is the principal investigator on BEACHON, which examines such issues as whether the destruction of Rocky Mountain forests by pine beetles and other causes can alter local precipitation patters and increase levels of ground-level ozone. Guenther collaborates with the Environmental Protection Agency on research that looks into the impact of future warming temperatures on ground-level ozone and other types of air quality. He is a researcher in NCAR's Atmospheric Chemistry Division.
