Lectures in Climate Change



These presentations are first in a monthly series sponsored by CCRUN, that is drawn from the recent book, Our Warming Planet: Topics in Climate Dynamics, published by World Scientific. The series encompasses topics such as natural and anthropogenic climate forcing, climate modeling, radiation, clouds, atmospheric dynamics and storms, hydrology, cryosphere, paleoclimate, sea level rise, agriculture, atmospheric chemistry, and climate change education. The lecture series is for students, teachers, and interested researchers and colleagues around the world to be better able to understand various aspects of climate change.

The webinar series will follow the presentations on various topics on climate change by their authors, and allow a dialogue between experts in the field and people interested in gaining deeper knowledge in a broad array of topics in climate dynamics.

The book, containing most of the material in this webinar series, can be purchased as an e-book, soft cover, or hard cover copy at the World Scientific Publishing website: https://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/10256

Webinars will take place monthly on Tuesdays from 3:00–5:00PM.  The full schedule can be found here.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. To register for the next webinar on July 17, 2019 please use this link.

No purchase of book necessary for viewing the webinar series. All webinars will be recorded and posted online.
