Probing past climates using trees and thermometers

From Tuesday 13th March 2018 18:30 to 19:30

Human activity is causing changes to our climate that are greater and faster than the natural variations we previously experienced. But by how much? Can we have confidence in the climate models we use to project our future climate? Understanding natural climate variability is key when addressing the important questions our global society faces.

In this lecture, Prof Osborn will explore how we can uncover past changes in climate from the information stored in tree rings, making use of living trees spread across the globe, or incorporating long-dead material to push the record back thousands of years.

You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy this free public lecture, and there will be a chance to meet the speaker at a drinks reception after the talk.
