In the NewsOur recent paper in Nature Geosciences was picked up in a few news sites. (Jan, 2015)
Recent research was mentioned in the Economist in a story on climate change. (Mar 30th 2013)
A paper with Kyle Armour on climate commitment (in GRL) generated several press stories (reported in Nature, and several others) in late 2011.
