  3. New science of climate change impacts on agriculture implies higher social cost of carbon

    22 Nov 2017 | Contributor(s): Nikki H

    Despite substantial advances in climate change impact research in recent years, the scientific basis for damage functions in economic models used to calculate the social cost of carbon (SCC) is either undocumented, difficult to trace, or based on a small number of dated studies. Here we present...

  5. The role of international trade in managing food security risks from climate change

    20 Mar 2015 | Publications | Contributor(s): Nikki H

    International trade plays an important role in facilitating global food security in the face of a changing climate. In considering this issue, it is useful to distinguish between two different time scales: inter-annual and inter-decadal. Inter-annual adjustments in international trade can play an...

  14. A seasonal-scale climatological analysis correlating spring tornadic activity with antecedent fall–winter drought in the southeastern United States

    06 Dec 2021 | Publications

    Using rain gauge and satellite-based rainfall climatologies and the NOAA Storm PredictionCenter tornado database (1952–2007), this study found a statistically significant tendency forfall–winter drought conditions to be correlated with below-normal tornado days the followingspring in north...

  15. POL 520/EAS 591 Great issues: climate and policy

    06 Dec 2021 | Courses | Contributor(s): Nikki H

    The course POL 520/EAS 591, “Great issues: climate and policy”, is designed to better educate students in the use and misuse of modeling across disciplines, so that they will be better builders and consumers of integrated, complex models of coupled human/natural systems in their own careers. More...

  16. A copula-based joint deficit index for droughts

    06 Dec 2021 | Publications

    Current drought information is based on indices that do not capture the joint behaviors of hydrologic variables. To address this limitation, the potential of copulas in characterizing droughts from multiplevariables is explored in this study. Starting from the standardized index (SI) algorithm, a...

  17. A spatio-temporal drought analysis for the Midwestern US

    06 Dec 2021 | Publications

    Droughts are prolonged abnormalities of moisture deficits that vary widely across temporal and spatial scales. Many hydrometeorologic variables are used to monitor the status of a drought. However, because of the dependence structure between all affecting variables under various temporal windows,...
