Eagle, Mitchell, and Tripati look at climate change in China

Posted on May 14, 2013

A study led by Robert Eagle, UCLA researcher in the department of Earth and space sciences, and Aradhna Tripati, UCLA assistant professor of Earth and space sciences and of atmospheric and oceanic sciences, showing that temperatures in central China are 10 to 14 degrees hotter than 20,000 years ago — an increase greater than many scientists assumed — was highlighted today by China's Xinhua News Agency, RedOrbit, Climate Progress, Science Daily and Science 2.0 . Eagle and Tripati, who is also a member of UCLA's Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, were quoted in the coverage.  Assistant Professor Ulli Seibt and Professor David Neelin of the department of atmospheric and oceanic sciences were also involved in the research.
