Geography Colloquium: “Simulating Past Warm Climates to Assess Earth System Models and Inform our Future”

Thursday, March 14 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Knight Library, DREAM Lab
1501 Kincaid Street, Eugene, OR

We are delighted to welcome Chris Poulsen to the geography colloquium for a talk titled “Simulating Past Warm Climates to Assess Earth System Models and Inform our Future”.

Poulsen is dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Oregon. In addition, he is a climate scientist and professor of earth science. His research seeks to understand the causes of past climate change on Earth and what lessons they hold for predicting our future climate. Much of his work uses advanced theoretical climate models as tools for exploring climate processes and dynamics. To do his work, he collaborates closely with geologists, environmental scientists, and ecologists. He has co-authored over 130 articles on topics such as past cold and warm climates, climate-mountain interactions, and earth system modeling.

Poulsen is an associate editor at the American Journal of Science, and a former associate editor for Paleoceanography and Paleoclimatology. He is also a fellow of the Geological Society of America and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

In-person attendance is preferred, but virtual talk attendance is also welcome via Zoom
