Cafe Sci I: "Getting Sea Level Predictions Right"

Hello all,

Time again for Cafe Scientifique I at the Wynkoop (topic link at the bottom). 

For those of you new to the group this is not an official meetup for us - just a great monthly science event.  There are usually around 100+ people in attendance, but not all are atheists (at least not members of our group:)).   

For good seats I recommend getting there around 5:45, but not much later than 6 (the Cafe is very popular).  The Cafe is free to attend, but you're on your own for parking (hey...it's downtown:)).

Members of our group often stay around for drinks and/or dinner afterward.  If you are interested hang out for a few minutes after the presentation is over and we'll see who is game (or come find me...I'm usually at the front table to the speaker's right).

If you would like to be on the notification email list, send your full name and email address to Dr. Cohen (the Cafe's founder): [masked]

Finally, there is no need to RSVP 'No'....'Yes' helps so we know how many from our group to expect.

Here is the topic link: http://cafescicolorado.org/Pfeffer.htm

Hasta luego,

Eric

    Was actually hoping to meet some new people. Instead it was an Antarctic reunion. Hopefully at the nex meetup with you guys, I can actually meet new people.

    A "new paper [March, 2013] shows Greenland has cooled approximately 2.5C over past 8,000 years," and pretty much continually over multi-century long periods during that time span.

    The paper in "Quaternary Science Reviews reconstructs temperatures from ice cores and finds the Greenland ice sheet has cooled about 2.5C over the past 8,000 years."

    Greenland glaciology is a young field of study, if only because the environment is quite extreme. We are unlikely to hear anything definitive about sea level impacts at this talk. The data has a long way to go before that can happen.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
