  • Summary Statement of Research Interests

    Professor Stott’s research seeks to understand what factors have influenced the behavior of Earth’s climate system over time. This research entails the acquisition of paleoclimate records of atmosphere and ocean properties spanning years to millennia. These records provide insight into Earth’s past climate variability. With well resolved records from the ocean and atmosphere it is then possible to conduct model experiments to test hypotheses that would account for the variability observed in the paleorecords.

    Stott’s students and post doctoral scientists are pursuing studies to test two scientific hypotheses.

    These are:
    Hypothesis 1) The flux of geologic carbon into the ocean and atmosphere varied in response to changing deep ocean temperatures that regulate the stability of geologic reservoirs of liquid and solid (hydrate) forms of CO2.

    This hypothesis predicts that as the oceans cool during cold periods (ice ages) geologic carbon in the form of CO2 accumulates within near surface environments including marine sediments. The accumulation of CO2 is accomplished because in the oceans cold temperatures and high pressures cause pure CO2 to liquify and solidify. Recent discoveries have revealed reservoirs of liquid CO2 trapped within marine sediments beneath layers of solid (hydrate) CO2 at the sea floor that acts like a bottle cap, keeping the liquid CO2 from escaping. But, when the oceans warm as they did during deglaciations and interglacials, the hydrate layer can become destabilized, allowing the buoyant liquid CO2 to leak from the sediment reservoirs into the oceans and then to the atmosphere. The release of this CO2 then amplifies the climate warming.

    To test this hypothesis we are conducting geochemical measurements on samples collected from marine environments near known sources of geologic carbon. Our goal is to characterize geochemical fingerprints of the CO2 that is imparted to marine sediments from from geologic carbon. These geochemical fingerprints are then used to identify times in the past when the CO2-rich fluids leaked into the ocean and atmosphere.

    Hypothesis 2) Reduced sea surface temperature gradient between the tropical and extra-tropical North Pacific increases atmospheric variance (storm track behavior) that affects the number of storm events that strike the west coast of the US (California) and thus, the amount of precipitation that falls over western North America during winter. This hypothesis, if validated would have important implications for water resource management in the future as the ocean continue to warm.

    This hypothesis is being tested using ensemble simulations from an atmospheric general circulation model that is forced with specific sea surface temperature anomaly patterns. Times in the Earth’s past when the North Pacific experienced anomalously warm temperatures, including the so-called Medieval Climate Anomaly Period (1000 to 1300 AD), the northeastern Pacific sea surface temperatures were anomalously warm. This was also a time of prolonged drought over the western US. The hypothesis would predict that this extended period of drought was the result of altered storm track behavior that resulted from the change in sea surface temperature gradient between the tropical and extratropical Northeast Pacific. We are investigating storm track variance by analyzing the stable isotope composition of individual tree rings from long-lived trees that grow in California. The stable isotope composition of cellulose extracted from tree rings is indicative of the source of moisture that falls across the wester

    Detailed Statement of Research Interests

    Professor Stott’s research attempts to understand what factors have governed the behavior of Earth’s climate system in the past. This research combines observational and modeling approaches. A central focus on ongoing research are investigations to understand Earth’s climate system response to variable fluxes of carbon to the ocea and atmosphere from geologic reservoirs during glacial/interglacial cycles of the late Pleistocene.
