Canceled: Climate Change: The Inside Scoop
Due to the recent news from UT administration, this event is cancelled until further notice.
Interested in learning about the underlying science of climate change and how our atmosphere affect Earth’s temperature? Scientists with the Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will discuss how they use science and technology to provide the highest quality atmospheric, meteorological, and climate information available. Focusing on different scenarios, they will describe the results of climate change with a focus on the effects of our future actions on the severity of global warming over the next 100 years.
LaToya Myles coordinates research and development programs as deputy director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Division in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. She also conducts scientific studies to understand the impact of atmospheric chemistry on the environment. The Mississippi native is a magna cum laude graduate of Alcorn State University with a double BS in chemistry and biology and a PhD in environmental sciences from Florida A&M University. Through numerous professional and community organizations, she advocates for STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and math) and mentors students who represent the next generation of scientists.
John Kochendorfer is an atmospheric scientist who uses measurements to better describe physical processes, trends, and variability in the atmosphere. His work enhances the ability to detect changes in the water cycle and determine vulnerability to flooding and drought. His research is also used to create more accurate models of the atmosphere and better understand the role of ecosystems in the Earth’s greenhouse gas and water budgets.
Free and open to the public.
