Additional Information

This session will follow up on Lonnie Thompson's Seltzer Lecture by providing an opportunity for an interdisciplinary discussion of climate change and climate policy. Light breakfast refreshments will be served. The roundtable participants will be:

Lonnie G. Thompson
Distinguished University Professor
Department of Geological Sciences
Ohio State University
Lonnie G. Thompson, Ohio State University
Andria Costello Staniec
Associate Professor

Each participant will be given 5-10 minutes for opening remarks on the roundtable topic, after which time roundtable participants can address questions and comments to each other. Audience members will be asked to participate when deemed appropriate by the facilitator.

It is expected that the audience will include advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty with an interest in climate change and global warming.

A major goal of the roundtable is to provoke discussion on the ways in which science and public policy experts can initiate interdisciplinary research programs that will move national and international stakeholders closer to implementing policy solutions for global warming.
