http://vimeo.com/7781878 On October 16, 2009, leading experts from around the country participated in a public symposium at the Linda Hall Library to explore the fundamental, and often ambiguous, issues of climate change. From basic climate science to the assessment of global warming evidence, our world-renowned faculty presented research from the viewpoint of their particular scientific disciplines to make clear the complex and rapidly evolving study of climate change. This video shows the opening of the symposium. Welcome to Linda Hall…Find out more »
http://vimeo.com/7782161 Dr. Thomas E. Lovejoy, Heinz Center for Science, Economics & the Environment, Washington, D.C The planet as a biophysical system, the interactions between the natural world and climate change, and how nature can contribute to addressing the climate challenge.Find out more »
http://vimeo.com/7783616 Johannes Feddema, University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas A summary of the various causes of climate change from human activities to natural forces. Johannes Feddema is professor of climatology in the Department of Geography at the University of Kansas. His primary interest is understanding the human impact on the Earths surface, including the anthropogenic impacts on climate, and how climate change affects the environment and society. Dr. Feddema's current research primarily aims to simulate human impacts on the Earth's surface…Find out more »
http://vimeo.com/7798538 Dr. Richard S. Lindzen is the Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research interests include the broad topics of climate, planetary waves, monsoon meteorology, planetary atmospheres, and hydrodynamic instability. Dr. Lindzen is currently studying the determinants of pole to equator temperature difference, the nonlinear equilibrium of baroclinic instability and the contribution of such instabilities to global heat transport.Find out more »
