Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Climate change science, impacts, and mitigation strategies
Date: Tuesday, January 31st
Time: 12:05 pm - 1:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Susan Nossal, UW Department of Physics
Abstract: Deep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are required to avert catastrophic impacts of climate change. This presentation will briefly overview some of the complexities associated with climate change science and impacts. One example is the influence on the upper atmosphere of increases in greenhouse gases and of the solar cycle, a major source of natural variability in this region. The talk will also include discussion of climate change mitigation strategies.
