Lecture is free and open to the public/ doors open at 6:30
SPEAKER: Dr. Kirsten Findell, Research Physical Scientist, Climate Change Variability and Prediction Group, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
Dr. Findell will address these important questions:
➤ How does the atmosphere (and CO2 in the atmosphere) regulate the temperature of the earth? What is the evidence that climate has changed?
➤ How are climate models used to study and understand the climate system?
➤ Can climate models explain the observational record if human-based emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases are included? What if they are not included?
➤ What can we expect for future climate trends?
Jointly presented by: Haverford Township Parks and Recreation Dept., Haverford Township Haverford Environmental Advisory Committee, Havertown Community Action Group, and Steve Clark, firstname.lastname@example.org (484) 477-7525
Dr. Findell is a graduate of Princeton University, BSE in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and MIT, SM and PhD in Hydroclimatology. She is currently a scientist with the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL)—a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) laboratory whose mission is to produce reliable assessments of natural climate variability and change. Dr. Findell has published extensively on her research in the fields of hydro - climatology and land-atmosphere interactions.
