Master candidate Chen Ruyan won the AOGS 14th Academic Conference Best Poster Award


At the 14th Annual Conference of the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS), Chen Ruyan, a graduate student in the Department of Earth System Science, won the Best Poster Award from the Atmospheric Science Section. Founded in 2003, AOGS is one of the most important academic societies in Asia and Oceania. Its annual academic year organizes a broad academic exchange and communication platform for scholars in Asia and around the world in the field of earth sciences. The 14th Annual Conference was held in Singapore from August 6th to 11th, with more than 600 abstracts received from the Department of Atmospheric Science, with two forms of presentation and poster postings. Based on the scientific, innovative, design and presentation of the poster, the answers to the questions are scored, and the three best posters are selected for the atmosphere science topics. Two other winners were from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the University of Taiwan.

The award-winning poster shows the recent research results of Chen Ruyan and his team. In this paper, the winter temperature anomalies in East Asia and North America show that there are significant common characteristics of winter temperature anomalies in eastern and eastern North America. It is found that Eurasian teleconnection (EU) and Pacific-North American teleconnection (PNA) are the key circulation factors to regulate the common temperature anomalies in winter, and the regulation of Arctic Oscillation (AO) is not dominant. The study also compared the potential predictability of co-firing events and co-heating events, and found that the potential predictability of co-firing events was long and up to about 8 days ahead of time. The potential predictability of the total heating event is short, about 4 days ahead of schedule.

The study was published in the journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres in June 2017. Tsinghua University, Department of Earth System Science Master Chen Ruyan as the first author, Assistant Professor Huang Wenyu as the author of the communication, the paper also includes Professor Wang Bin, associate professor of Jonathan White, Department of Earth System Science doctor Yang Zifan, master Ma Wenqian.
