School of Earth, Society, and Environment
The Earth is a complex system in which the solid planet, the oceans, the atmosphere, and life (both human and non-human) interact in countless ways. In order to respond to the environmental challenges of our time, it is necessary to understand these interactions and interdependencies that transcend the boundaries of traditional academic disciplines. The School of Earth, Society, and Environment (SESE) brings the resources of the departments of Atmospheric Sciences, Geology, and Geography at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to study the Earth System.
Predition of compressive strength from point-load and moisture content indices of highly anisotropic, coal-bearing strata of the Illinois Basin (1983)
Investigating tropical cyclone-climate interactions using the high-resolution Community Earth System Model (CESM) (2018-04-18)Tropical cyclone (TC) - induced ocean vertical mixing can alter the upper ocean temperature structure, influencing ocean heat content variability and meridional ocean heat transport. This TC-ocean interaction process has ...
(2018-04-09)In this dissertation, I study the seasonal migration of landless communities in rural western India. My research explains how labor migration has transformed gender, caste, and class relations in the drylands of Maharashtra ...
The importance of ocean internal variability for coupled climate modeling in the community earth system model (2018-04-13)Considerable efforts have been made in recent decades to diagnose how the climate of our planet is changing in response to anthropogenic greenhouse gas forcing. There are considerable risks associated with a warming climate, ...
Crustal structure beneath hi-climb seismic array in western Tibetan plateau from a generalized H-κ method (2018-04-24)Receiver function(RF) is commonly used for analyzing seismic waves generated at structural boundaries and imaging major interfaces of the Earth. The traditional H-κ method using grid search and RF stacking developed by Zhu ...
