Martin Jucker works at the University of New South Wales. His expertise lies in climate dynamics, including stratospheric dynamics and the variability of the jet stream, but also cloud resolving simulations of tropical convection.
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 […]
