Learn How Scientists Predict Climate Change

Wx and the City

Next week, the Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences, in partnership with the National Environmental Education Foundation, is hosting a lecture on the "Emerging Science of Climate Change."

Dr. Michael Winton, an oceanographer at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) of the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration (NOAA) and Dr. Jay Gulledge, Senior Scientist at the Pew Center on Global Climate Change will discuss how scientists predict future climate change, whether new modeling systems and ever faster computers impact their understanding of climate change, how they use information from climate change models in their research, and how this information can be used today to make decisions.

The event takes place at 6:30 pm on Thursday, September 17, 2009, at the Koshland Science Museum (directions). The cost is $7 general admission ($5 for students) and light refreshments will be provided.
