The Physics of Climate Change: Three Blackboard Lectures on Simple Models in Climate Science
Three-part lecture series, "The Physics of Climate Change: Three Blackboard Lectures on Simple Models in Climate Science," presented by Nadir Jeevanjee, Hess Fellow in the Department of Geosciences. This event is part of a new GEO/AOS/PEI Climate Seminar Series.
There is a perception that climate science can only be approached with complex computer simulations. But working climate scientists often use simple models to understand their simulations and make order-of-magnitude estimates. Jeevanjee will present some of these simple models with the goal of making climate science more accessible and comprehensible. The lectures are at 4pm each day:
- Monday, Feb. 12 — "Warming, Fast and Slow"
- Tuesday, Feb. 13 — "Global Warming in Temperature Coordinates"
- Wednesday, Feb. 14 — "On Constant Relative Humidity"
