The Sustainability Perspectives Series presents "Change Is in the Air: Global Climate Change from a New York Perspective," with Art DeGaetano from the Northeast Regional Climate Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Historical climate observations and climate model projections will be used to show how global climate change is affecting New York and the Northeastern United States. Future projections rely heavily on simulations from climate models. To gain an appreciation for the accuracy of these model projections, an introduction to the Earth's climate system and the basic working of a modern climate model will be discussed.
This event will take place at 12:20 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 11, 2019 in the de Witt Lecture Room (Zabriskie Hall 106) on the Wells College campus. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
This talk is part of the Center for Sustainability and the Environment's Sustainability Perspectives Series. Wells is committed to providing access to all events; anyone needing assistance should contact Marian Brown, director of the Center for Sustainability and the Environment, as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315.364.3304.
