Dear All,

13th Jeremy Grantham Lecture on Climate Change

Title: "Thriving on our Changing Planet: New Space-borne Observations of the Water Cycle"

Speaker: Prof. Jeff Dozier, Distinguished Professor and Founding Dean, Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA

Venue: Divecha Centre for Climate Change (DCCC) Auditorium

Date & Time: Thursday, 22 February 2018;  3:30 PM


The U.S. National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine has just completed a decadal survey of Earth science and applications from space. We considered observations need to advance our understanding in five categories. This lecture will focus on Global Hydrological Cycles and Water Resources, where the most important questions address changes in the water and energy cycles caused by interacting changes in climate, land use, water use, and water storage. Needed new measurements include precipitation and its phase, accumulation and ablation of snow and ice, and variables that control evapotranspiration, water quality, and groundwater recharge.

Tea/Coffee: 3:15 PM
