About this EventAdd to calendar
"Greenhouse gases alter the flow of energy through the climate system, driving changes in surface temperature, the amount of moisture in the atmosphere, and in atmospheric circulation. The hydrologic cycle transfers water from the surface to the atmosphere, so precipitation is also affected by greenhouse gas forcing - in the mean, in its intensity, and in the location of precipitating systems. In this talk I will highlight some of the key aspects of the response of the distribution of precipitation in space, time, and intensity to global warming and some of the mechanisms that drive them. "
Speaker: Upmanu Lall, Columbia University
Lectures will be followed by a discussion moderated by faculty host.
