Climate Change: Permafrost Thaw in the Arctic and Our Climate’s Future
Lecturer: Merritt Turetsky, Director and Professor, Institute of Artic and Alpine Research
This lecture will address some of the ongoing climatic and environmental changes that are affecting the Arctic, including megaﬁres and thawing permafrost. Dr. Turetsky will speak to her 20 years of working across Boreal and Arctic regions and will use images and storytelling to describe the changes that she has observed in her (relatively) short career. Finally, we will look to the future and discuss how a changing Arctic might inﬂuence atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations and thus dictate our climate future.
In-person and virtual tickets will not be available after 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 6.
