Description:

How does the Earth’s climate allow fish to survive in the oceans, corn to grow in the Midwest, and wildflowers to bloom in Santa Barbara in February? The current methods used by climate scientists are as diverse as the landscapes of Earth. This seminar will describe how climate scientists use advanced technology to explain some of the main factors that influence Earth’s complex climate such as weather patterns invisible to human senses and global warming. A focus on the impact of the ocean and atmosphere will include review of a few modern studies of Arctic Sea ice in winter and the estuaries along the Louisiana coast.
