Anticipating Impacts of Abrupt Climate Change

Friday, January 10, 2014 - 14:00 to 15:00

An NRC-hosted webinar to brief the public on the likelihood of abrupt changes in various components of Earth's climate system.

Please join the U.S. National Research Council in a free public webinar briefing on its new report, titled Abrupt Impacts of Climate Change: Anticipating Surprises.  The report examines the likelihood of various physical components of the Earth system undergoing major and rapid changes (e.g., a shutdown of ocean circulation, ice sheet disintegration, etc.), explores how to monitor climate change for warnings of abrupt changes and emerging impacts, and identifies high priority needs for future research directions and monitoring capabilities.

Speakers will include James White from the University of Colorado at Boulder, who chaired the report's authoring committee; and committee members Anthony Barnosky, from the University of California at Berkeley, and Richard Alley, from Penn State University.    

Register to attend.  Registration is required to attend this free webinar.
