CANCELLED: Food for thought talk on 6 Mar, 2014

I’m sorry that the talk has to be cancelled.

Talk: Climate Change Research

Speaker: Dr Andrew Friend, Department of Geography

Abstract: Andrew Friend from Department of Geography develops computational models of the effects of global change on terrestrial ecosystems and atmosphere. His current work is particularly concerned with the representation of physiological differences between plant types and species, the representation of competition, and the global-scaledynamics of biogeochemistry-climate interactions. Dr Friend leads the research which is part of the ‘Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project’ (ISI-MIP) – a unique community-driven effort to bring research on climate change impacts to a new level.

Dr Friend will speak about his work within ISI -MIP project, what implications the recent findings have on the future of climate studies and the potential for this research feeding into climate policy.

Come along for this very special lunchtime talk to find out about the frontiers in climate research! Feel free to bring your own lunch, but light refreshments will be also provided.

1-2pm Thursday 6th Mar

Room N7, Pembroke College
