Patrick Colgan Lecture: Climate Change and the Glaciers of Greenland -

7 to 8:30 p.m.; RBG Centre

Climate change is a critical challenge for science and society. Current research in the arctic is demonstrating the effects of climate change, and helping scientists to predict changes such as sea level rise. Join Dr. William Colgan, assistant professor at York University, as he describes his research on the Greenland ice sheet, its influences on global sea level, and emerging evidence that the response of the ice sheet to climate change may not be linear. Dr. Colgan intertwines his scientific findings with stunning photographs from his recent international expedition to the ice sheet in 2016.
