Jagadish Shukla, chair of the Climate Dynamics Department and member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), will give a talk titled “Global Warming: the Known, the Unknown and the Unknowable” on Tuesday, Nov. 6, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Mason Hall Edwin Meese III Conference Room on the Fairfax Campus.
Shukla was one of the lead authors of the chapter, “Climate Models and their Evaluation,” which was part of the larger IPCC report released earlier this year, “Climate Change 2007: The Physical Science Basis.” The IPCC was awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize along with Al Gore.
Shukla is the author or coauthor of more than 150 scientific papers and has made significant contributions to the understanding of the predictability of short-term climate fluctuations. His scientific contributions include research on monsoon dynamics, deforestation, desertification, tropical predictability and climate variability.
The talk is free and all are invited. For more information, contact Debbie Williams at 703-993-8776.
