The impact of an early career award on advanced climate modeling

Assoc. Prof. Christiane Jablonowski looks back at the award’s effect on her research. | Short Read

In 2010, Climate & Space Assoc. Prof. Cristiane Jablonowski was the recipient of a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science Early Career Award for her abstract “Introducing Enabling Computational Tools to the Climate Sciences: Multi‐Resolution Climate Modeling with Adaptive Cubed‐Sphere Grids.”

The DOE Office of Science recently published a follow-up interview with Prof. Jablonowski in which she discusses the impact the award had on her research.

Christiane’s project was one of 69 that were selected from a pool of 1750 university and laboratory based applicants of the DOE’s Early Career Research Program. The program provides financial support to young scientists, enabling them to focus on their research goals.

In Prof. Jablonowski’s case, the award “…made it possible to investigate new pathways to bridge the wide range of spatial scales between local, regional, and global phenomena in atmospheric general circulation models without the prohibitive computational costs of global high-resolution simulations.”
