It is our pleasure to announce a new informal seminar series focused on climate research.
The Climate Seminars are scheduled biweekly on Mondays, 4:00-5:00 p.m., in Guyot Hall, Room 220.
The format of the seminar presentations may vary, but common to all seminars is that we wish to foster dialogue and discussion, and that raising questions during the seminar is explicitly welcome. We also hope that following the seminar interested parties may head to town to continue the discussions well into the evening.
The first seminar will be given by GEO Hess fellow Nadir Jeevanjee on Monday, February 12, 2018
Nadir Jeevanjee will deliver a 3-lecture series on "The Physics of Climate Change" (see below).
The seminars will also be announced on the GEO, AOS, and PEI events pages and calendar:
Event poster reads: GEO/AOS/PEI Climate Seminar Series. THE PHYSICS OF CLIMATE CHANGE. Three Blackboard Lectures on Simple Models in Climate Science. Feb. 12-14, 4 p.m., Guyot Hall, Room 220.
Nadir Jeevanjee, Hess Fellow, Department of Geosciences.
There is a perception that climate science can only be approaced with complex computer simulations. But working climate scientists often use simple models to understand their simulations and make order-of-magnitude estimates. Jeevanjee will present some of these simple models with the goal of making climate science more accessible and comprehensivle.
Monday, Feb. 12 - "Warming, Fast and Slow"
Tuesday, Feb. 13 - "Global Warming in Temperature Coordinates"
Wednesday, Feb. 14 - "On Constant Relative Humidity"
Presented by: Department of Geosciences, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, and Princeton Environmental Institute.
