Science Journey: "Snowballs in the Desert: Studying Climate Transitions in Earth's Deep Past"
- Public Event
How does Earth's climate really work? Why does the climate change, and what does CO2 have to do with it? What are the extreme limits of Earth's climate?
This program will include a discussion of how geologists unravel the climate history of our planet and how that helps us respond to climate change today.
Caltech graduate student Dustin Morris will explain how Earth's climate functions and how it was pushed to the extreme millions of years ago during a time known as "Snowball Earth."
This online event is free, but reservations are required.
