MIT Darwin Group Research Scientist Jonathan Lauderdale and Postdoc Maike Sonnewald, use a simple game involving Swedish Fish, inspired by principles put forth by ecologist Crawford Stanley (Buzz) Holling, to model connections between food abundance and predator consumption at MIT Museum’s 2019 Nautical Day, February 23rd.Continue reading →
Darwin researchers Stephanie Dutkiewicz, Jonathen Lauderdale, David Talmy, and Darcy Taniguchi are off to Granada, Spain this month to attend the the Association of the Sciences of Limnology, and Oceanography (ASLO) 2015 annual meeting taking place from 22-27 February. Continue reading →
Jonathan Lauderdale is a physical oceanographer and ocean biogeochemical modeller “intrigued” by the mechanisms through which the ocean can alter Earth’s climate and atmospheric CO2 concentration both in the past and under future anthropogenic changes. So far his focus has been on high latitude regions, particularly the Southern Ocean. He mostly uses global coarse resolution numerical models of ocean circulation coupled to simplified biogeochemistry routines, but also exploits composite tracers to reveal how different components of carbon and nutrient cycles operate.
