Virtual WN@TL: “Weird Ways Climate Change Will affect us that you probably didn’t know”

October 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Speaker: Ankur Desai, Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences

Description: You’ve probably heard about climate change and you’ve probably seen the news about heatwaves, forest fires, intense hurricanes, or shrinking glaciers. You can guess how those are linked and be mostly right. But there are also some harder to make sense impacts and some innovative ways to address those. Our lab has found curious links between climate change and windier lakes, wetter snow storms, lower crop yield, and cooler wetlands. Learning about these are not just academic exercises, but help us better understand how the Earth system works, improve our computer model predictions of future climate change, and develop novel ways to combat the worst effects. So come join and get weird with us!
