Dutta is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Cambridge. She is interested in understanding the physical processes that lead to abrupt climate changes, with a particular focus on past climates.
Our planet has warmed by about 1.2°C since 1850. But this warming is not uniform. Warming at the poles, especially the Arctic, has been three to four times faster than the rest of the globe. It’s a phenomenon known as “polar amplification.” Climate models simulate this effect, but when tested against the past 40 years […]
