Professor Inez Fung Elected to The Royal Society

Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Professor Inez Fung studies climate change and the carbon cycle. She is a principal architect of large-scale mathematical modeling approaches and numerical models to represent the geographic and temporal variations of sources and sinks of CO2, dust and other trace substances around the globe. Her work inferred a Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes land sink for anthropogenic CO2, and suggests that the diminishing capacities of the land and oceans to store carbon in a warming climate would act to accelerate global warming.
