Training and Education Plan This project is a highly focused a modeling activity that will primarily engage faculty and post-doctoral associates. Much of the data has already been collected, and much groundwork has already been laid by the preceding project, LC-24. Thus, we have no budget items for graduate student support, which was the primary focus of our training and educational activity under LC-24. Nevertheless, the proposed project does possess continuity with LC-24 along this dimension, with its involvement of Arima, Robalino, and Caldas, all of whom were active team participants. Clearly, Arima and Robalino will receive useful training beyond the conclusion of their graduate studies by participation as post-doctoral associates. This is of particular relevance in the case of Arima, who is Brazilian, and LBA’s interest in training Brazilian scientists. As a post-doctoral associate on the proposed project, Arima will gain project management skills, and he will continue with his successful efforts to publish papers. Specifically, Walker plans to work closely with Arima on manuscript preparation and submission of peer-reviewed journal articles. He will also work with closely with unfunded project participant, Caldas, who is Brazilian, too, and is beginning to submit papers to major peer-reviewed journals. Pfaff anticipates similar interactions with post-doctoral associate Robalino, who is now concluding his PhD at Columbia. Finally, Walker, Pfaff, Reis, and Perz will work with recent PhD recipient Moore, the Co-Investigator responsible for the climate simulation, to expand his list of peer reviewed publications. Thus, the training and education objective of the proposed project is aimed at helping new PhDs, and one mature PhD student, develop post-dissertation skills, such as paper writing, that are essential to successful scientific careers.
