Discuss Climate Change with Prof. Louisa Bradtmiller in Seattle

Climate Change: Past, Present and Future

Earth's climate has undergone dramatic changes throughout the geologic record, and climate scientists are coming closer to a comprehensive explanation of how the climate system worked in the past.

Join Professor Louisa Bradtmiller as she explores the past, present and future of climate change with Seattle area alumni. This discussion will review what we know about pre-anthropogenic climate change, how we know it, and how it can inform our perspective on current observed and predicted changes in climate.

The cost for the event is $10.  Register online here.

Refreshments and breakfast snacks provided. The library opens at 10 a.m. Find more information on directions and parking here.

Professor Bradtmiller is an isotope geochemist and paleoclimatologist/paleoceanographer interested in the ocean's role in climate change over glacial-interglacial timescales. Her recent research includes the use of uranium-series isotopes in the reconstruction of glacial ocean circulation rates, and in the characterization of those same isotopes in modern seawater and sediments. She is also involved in ongoing research into ocean biogeochemistry and nutrient cycling, with a focus on the transfer of carbon between the ocean and atmosphere during periods of past climate change.
