The advances described in 13 papers represent outcomes from research funded by the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) and Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) programs, leveraging other U.S. agencies’ investments, and coordinated within the framework of the Third MAPP Drought Task Force (DTF3).
Dr. Camargo journeyed from Brazil's most populous city to New York in 1999. She came with little more than a passion for physics and mathematics, as well as a strong drive to leave a mark on the world. Now, an accredited climate researcher and scientist with the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University, Camargo shares her story. Camargo documents her upbringing, her climate research, diversity in the climate science field and more in a profile-feature story for Women's History Month.
