*** These lectures are officially OVER. If you would like to watch them again, please follow along with the recordings and the links provide for each weeks lecture***
In this period of madness, I would like to announce a short, fun series to teach all of my wonderful friends about the basic science of climate change. As follows are the weekly topics. Grab a brew, turn on Zoom, and lets get our science on!
TIME: THURSDAYS, 7-7:30 PST
ZOOM LINK: https://ucla.zoom.us/j/430265007
What is the earth doing with energy?
(aka radiation, greenhouse effect, greenhouse gasses)
WTF is the ocean doing in all this?
(aka heat capacity, gas exchange, biogeochemistry)
Why is there so much emphasis on CO2?
(aka how climate science is communicated, carbon cycle)
(aka carbon in the ocean)
How do we know all this is happening?
(aka measurements, models, and math)
WHATS GOING ON RIGHT NOW?
(aka the greatest pause on emissions we’ve ever experienced)
Thats a wrap!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming to these fun and silly lectures 🙂 So what did people take away from this?
Stay tuned for more fun science to come, and thank you again!
