EarthTalks embraces uncertainty in Earth system modeling projections

March 16, 2020

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Earth system models can show the effects of climate change on global and continental scales, but the models are limited at smaller scales. So, how can scientists help decision makers prepare for climate change risks regionally? Chris Forest, professor of climate dynamics, will look at uncertainty in Earth system model projections and its effects on assessing climate risk and proposing solutions at the next EarthTalks seminar at 4 p.m. Monday, March 23. The seminar will be broadcast through Zoom: https://psu.zoom.us/j/594342606. The talk is free and open to the public.

Forest’s presentation is part of the spring 2020 EarthTalks series, "Societal Problems, EESI Science towards Solutions." The series features scientists from Penn State’s Earth and Environmental Systems Institute (EESI) and explores the human impacts on the global environment and how to apply this knowledge to decision-making. The series runs every Monday through April 27.

The spring 2020 EarthTalks series is supported by the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute.
