Arctic Meltdown? Past and Present-day Climate Change in the Arctic

Come on out for what will be the final Science Café for this academic year!

“Arctic Meltdown? Past and Present-day Climate Change in the Arctic” 

Yarrow Axford, Assistant Professor, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Northwestern University

What do we really know about climate change in Arctic regions, and how do we know it? What data allows scientists to draw conclusions about current climate trends – and their causes?  How were those data collected? Professor Axford has conducted field-based climate research in the Arctic for more than 15 years.  She will provide a geologist’s perspective on these questions, offering a broad overview of the science of climate change and a personal perspective on conducting research in remote parts of Greenland, Iceland, Arctic Canada, and Alaska.

You can order and eat dinner during the presentation. The burgers are great! Free parking across the street!
