Bert Bolin Lecture on Climate Research

19 november, 2019 @ 14:00 - 15:00


Naturvetenskapliga fakulteten vid Stockholms universitet bjuder in till årets Bert Bolin Lecture on Climate Research. Föreläsningen ges årligen för att minnas professor Bert Bolin och hans banbrytande arbete för klimatforskning. Talaren väljs bland internationellt framstående klimatforskare och årets talare är Professor Maureen Raymo, director of the Lamont-Doherty Core Repository, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

Seminariet är gratis och öppet för alla, först till kvarn gäller. Seminariet hålls på engelska. Kaffe och tilltugg serveras efter seminariet.

Om seminariet

The Earth is warming up. The on-going pollution of our atmosphere with an invisible odourless gas called carbon dioxide, is trapping heat at the Earth’s surface and causing temperatures to rise on land and in the ocean. The polar regions are warming fastest of all and the melting ice sheets are causing sea levels to rise around the globe. In this talk, Professor Raymo will review evidence for climate change, natural and anthropogenic, and explore how ice sheets and sea level changed in the past. How fast climate changes in the future will depend on our collective actions as individuals, families, communities, and governments.

Maureen E. Raymo is a renowned scientist who has been a pioneer in the study of ice ages and sea level in Earth’s history. Her work has shaped our understanding of Earth’s natural climate variability and her landmark papers have influenced a generation of scientists. In 2014, Professor Raymo, a fellow of the National Academy of Sciences, the Explorers Club, and the American Geophysical Union, became the first woman to be awarded the Wollaston Medal, the Geological Society of London’s most senior medal and highest accolade.
