OUR WARMING PLANET: TOPICS IN CLIMATE DYNAMICS
Tuesday, May 21, 2019
3:00PM – 5:00PM Eastern Time (New York City, NY, United States)
•The Importance of Understanding the Last Glacial Maximum for Climate Change by Dorothy Peteet
•Chemistry–Climate Interactions in a Changing Environment: Wildfire in the West and the US Warming Hole by Loretta J. Mickley
These presentations are part of a monthly series hosted by CCRUN, a NOAA RISA Team. The lectures are drawn from the recent book, Our Warming Planet: Topics in Climate Dynamics, published by World Scientific. The series encompasses topics such as natural and anthropogenic climate forcing, climate modeling, radiation, clouds, atmospheric dynamics and storms, hydrology, cryosphere, paleoclimate, sea level rise, agriculture, atmospheric chemistry, and climate change education. The lecture series is for students, teachers, and interested researchers and colleagues around the world to be better able to understand various aspects of climate change.
The book, containing most of the material in this webinar series, can be purchased as an e-book, soft cover, or hard cover copy at the World Scientific Publishing website:
Webinars will take place monthly on Tuesdays from 3:00–5:00PM. No purchase of book necessary for viewing the webinar series. All webinars are recorded and made available on the Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast website at http://www.ccrun.org/resources/lectures-in-climate-change/.
