K-State geologist to discuss deep-time paleoclimatology
Karin Goldberg, assistant professor of geology, will give a public lecture at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27, in 328 Waters Hall.
Goldberg will discuss how climate change is inherent to the Earth's dynamics and operates at different scales. Analyzing past climates across longer time scales allows natural climatic variability to be differentiated from human-induced changes, enabling society to better understand anthropogenic climate forcing and our options for mitigating damaging outcomes.
This talk is being presented for students participating in the capstone course of the natural resources and environmental science secondary major and is open to the general public as part of the NRES Seminar Series. Undergraduate students interested in natural resources, environmental science and sustainability issues are especially encouraged to attend.
The natural resources and environmental science secondary major and its seminar series are generously supported by the Office of the Provost, College of Agriculture, College of Arts and Sciences and biological and agricultural engineering department.
