Curator's Coffee -- Heat waves, Droughts, and Global Warming: Are they Related?
New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science
Albuquerque, NM
Share this event:

Recent heat waves and droughts have prompted lots of debate about whether these high-impact events can be blamed on human-caused global warming. We'll review some recent extreme climate anomalies, such as last year's record setting drought centered in Texas, discuss how we can assess extreme weather in the context of a changing climate, and illustrate how one might expect to see the signs of global warming emerging in local weather.

David Gutzler's research is on climate variability and change, with an emphasis on monsoon circulations and semiarid climates. He is former Editor of the American Meteorological Society's Journal of Climate and an AMS-Certified Consulting Meteorologist. He is currently a Lead Author for the upcoming 5th Assessment Report of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He received his PhD in Meteorology from MIT.  He has worked with the Museum as an external Curator for the Degrees of Change exhibit and as an expert consultant about climate change in New Mexico.

The New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science reserves the right to cancel any event that does not reach a minimum of 6 participants.
