Ben Bond-Lamberty

Joint Global Change Research Institute
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory / University of Maryland
Research Scientist
Ph.D., University of Wisconsin, Madison

Ben's research focuses on carbon cycling in terrestrial ecosystems, particularly boreal and other northern forests, and their response to natural and human-initiated disturbances.

At AGU16: The challenge of establishing decomposition functional types to estimate heterotrophic respiration at large scales (Invited)

Presentation Schedule: Dec. 16, 10:20-10:35 a.m.

Maoyi Huang

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Earth Systems Analysis & Modeling

Maoyi's research interest lies in the study of carbon, water, and energy budgets at the regional scale in the context of land-use and climate change using earth system science approaches.

At AGU16: Quantifying Impacts of Land-use and Land Cover Change in a Changing Climate at the Regional Scale using an Integrated Earth System Modeling Approach (Invited)

Presentation Schedule: Dec. 14, 8:30-8:45 a.m.

L. Ruby Leung

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Earth Systems Analysis & Modeling
Laboratory Fellow
Ph.D., Texas A&M University

Ruby's research broadly cuts across multiple areas in modeling and analysis of climate and the hydrological cycle including land-atmosphere interactions, orographic processes, monsoon climate, climate extremes, land surface processes, and aerosol-cloud interactions.

At AGU16: Ruby is delivering two talks:

Richard Moss

Joint Global Change Research Institute
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory / University of Maryland
Senior Staff Scientist
Ph.D., Princeton University

Richard's research interests include development and use of scenarios, characterization and communication of uncertainty, and adaptation and vulnerability to climate change.

At AGU16: Richard is delivering two talks:

Tim Scheibe

Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL)
Senior Scientist and Lead Scientist for Multiscale Modeling and High-Performance Computing
Ph.D., Stanford University

Tim develops the scientific vision for multiscale and computational science within EMSL, provides a national perspective on the future scientific and technological needs, and sets a strategy to integrate EMSL capabilities to address key scientific issues in environmental molecular science relevant to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Biological and Environmental Research (BER) missions.

At AGU16: A Multiscale Simulation Framework to Investigate Hydrobiogeochemical Processes in the Groundwater-Surface Water Interaction Zone (Invited)

Presentation Schedule: Dec. 14, 4-4:15 p.m.
