Newly minted climate scientist Ousmane Ndiaye is bringing the forecasting expertise he developed at IRI and Columbia back to his native Senegal. We have a nice profile of Dr. Ndiaye over on the IRI web site.

La Niña Impacts Likely to Continue

I just posted a piece on the IRI home page about the latest La Niña. The map I show here tells us where we in the world can expect shifts in rainfall due to La Niña. We also produced a set of three video interviews of IRI scientists Lisa Goddard, Brad Lyon, Dave Dewitt and Paul Block, who share their knowledge of the La Niña - El Niño phenomenom, aka ENSO.

Hi Francesco,

I will be in Bali as well. Would love to catch up at some point. Jeffrey Sachs has spoke at a few of our events and I'm a big fan of the Earth Institute. We have a few side events too if you're interested. Nice to meet you (electronically at least).

Dear Francesco,

Very much interesting information you have posted in this network. Regarding weather forcasting in Nepal we are far behind till now. The first main reason is the lack of technology and the other is complex topography.Mainly the altitudional variations that mean within the distance of 200 KM there are altitudional variations from 60m to 8848m above sea level. Globle warming due to the climate change has also becomining the meajor issues in Nepal. We have also been feeling difficulties to develop climate change senarions in Nepal. I want to share ideas from you about this topics.

Best regards,
